Interesting reading indeedy. I’ve seen two globes of death over the years at travelling circuses. From memory their finale was to have three motorbikes (motorcross type bike’s) all wizzing round at the same time. Going pretty damn quick too. Very impressive to watch.
I didn’t realise they went back that far, I thought they were a relatively new take on the wall of death.
As the saying goes.. “every day is a school day”
Thanks for posting Bill 👍
Cheers, Michael
