“Scramble” – A 1981 Motocross Film By Syd Pearman

A 1981 look at the sport of scrambling and motocross. Filmed on 16mm film When we decided back in 1980, that we would like to make a film about scrambling we thought that some slow motion would be a good idea, preferably in the rain so that mud being flung from the bikes might look good. We went to 3 meetings but there was never any sign of rain when we turned up – in fact it was almost a guarantee for the organisers of a fine day if we attended. In the end we did the film in the sunshine and the slo-mo wasn’t too bad in all the dust. . . . But see what you think.
