The Gloucestershire dealer of Royal Enfield Open link in a new window motorcycle, BVM Open link in a new window, had organized on the 14th of April a special race for Royal Enfield owners. Not a speed race, nor an endurance race, but a race to see who could beat the factory quoted Miles Per Gallon figure of 79 mpg.

Two categories Enfields were organized, motorcycles with EFI and ones with carburetors. The "race" was held on a 39 mile stretch of road.
