The wettest days often provide the greatest spectacle for such meetings - creating tricky conditions for the riders, often dramatic crashes, and leaving competitors' leathers spattered with thick sticky mud.
But at the Bentley meeting 28 years ago it was a dry day meaning that a lot of the racing was much closer than usual as the photos show - with close-fought races and riders jockeying for position in tight groups.
