£4.25  /  In Stock

This Presentation Pack is an exclusively produced full colour folder which contains the miniature sheet from the 100 Years of Jersey Motorcycle & Light Car Club issue. Information and technical details of the issue is printed on the inside of the folder. The miniature sheet features a photograph from one of the few Jersey International Road Races run by the club. In 1947, the JMC&LCC held the first Jersey International Road Race, which took place on the streets of Jersey, with thousands of spectators lining the pavements. Due to its heavy financial burden on the club, the race was only held four more times, before being discontinued. However, during those years the race saw some of the finest racers of their generation, including Prince Bira, Reg Parnell, Raymond Mays and F.R. Gerard.
