Kieft Record Runs, Montlhéry November 1950

On the 21st to 23rd November Kieft ran at Montlhéry to establish records for 350cc and 500 cc. Two separate cars were used, one of which belonged to Jack Neill (Kieft's agent). At one stage, 14 records were claimed but only 13 were ever ratified. The success generated much needed publicity for the company and indirectly led to Moss driving the subsequent CK51 car.
