A better subject title and some kind of description would surely help (especially for future searches)?

My guess on location would be Olivers' Mount. My father is a bike nut and has told me a lot about bike racing in the '50s and 60s.

Having chatted with my dad, and looking at photos, we conclude thatit' not Oliver's Mount, as the only tight right-hander there has a flat verge on the outside with a picturesque view over Scarborough rather than a steep grassy bank. Although his era of knowledge is late '50 and '60s, he dates the photo as 1st half of the '80s.

I was wondering if it was the Dundrod hairpin.

Yes, that was my dad's thought - and I'm now sure it's not Dundrod.
