258Guinchy, please post your photos, there are not many around and it would be great to see them.

 

I can remember some cars going well, others not so well :-)  great idea but just didn't work out as well as Bammy wanted to. 

 

And yes, Chissy at Bradford in the Texaco car was a night to remember!

I've just done it Colin. The meeting was on 23rd June 1978. I was great at photoing the lamp standards and people's heads! I was chuffed with my Kodak Instamatic at the time while the photo of the champs being driven round was taken by my pal Big Al Wilson (68) who had some decent kit, what a difference even then. Mobile phones with cameras? Not even thought of then, if you had a CB rig to talk with you were the dog's dangly bits.

Thanks for the feedback folks. I have quite a few pics using my Instamatic (!) when I snook right down to the metal fence to take them as the drivers came round. They are certainly not up to Colin's standard so I haven't put mine on the gallery.

 

I felt for Bammy that some of the cars were well off the pace as the thought of all the drivers being up to speed was very appealing. Of course, Chissy would have won! His final Brisca appearance in his red Texaco car will always be remembered by me.

As others have said, I don't know Simon or Alan but Alan's updates on their cars, the conversion of RAM and Alan's obvious engineering/racing knowledge were very interesting and appreciated. RIP Simon and condolences to all the family.

For such a big lad Jake certainly whizzed around on that engine removal!

Always enjoyed reading your new updates to the site Colin. Thanks for doing it over the years but sorry that it is going away.
