In 1906 The Motor Cycling Club's gold medal was awarded to those who could compete the 391 mile journey from London to Edinburgh inside 24 hours. The fastest finisher was Tom Woodman (22h 38m) riding a 5-horsepower Vindec Special motor-bicycle. W. H. 'Billy' Wells in second was also riding a Vindec.[2]

Vindecs were also placed in the 1907 Isle of Man TT Twin Cylinder race, Billy Wells coming second and J. A. Dent fourth.
