    Ansell class !

    JSD must have some great archive footage from the 80s/90s. I remember buying videos of Coventry meetings from JSD years ago. Very good footage for the time with limited cameras.

    Ansell class !

    Great race. George was closing the gap very quickly. A touch of luck was Ray Leigh was slowed down but a good win regardless. Whatever happened to Martyn Clark who I haven’t seen in years?
  3. Mick Sworder, Dave Mellor, Bezz, Speakie. Its going to be hard to trim the list as everyone had their own opinion but good luck.
  4. Great stories Graham. Thanks for sharing. i really enjoyed the book as well.

    New Cars

    All that shinny gear and nowhere to race. Another great looking car. when do we gat a picture of what’s meant to be under the Harris wing? I assume it’s the shale car he has been working on for some time?

    What now?

    I just hope we get the world Final. Probably not much time for qualifying if we do so why not try something different. One night, 80 cars racing in a British Championship format with 24qualifying via points and a last chance qualifier for last 10 places. World Final last race of night.

    Crazy cars.

    Thankfully the ears didn’t last long. Not a good looking car at all but it didn’t half shift......

    What now?

    Cars will be there but I hope the tracks are. It’s devastating for promoters and for people who work for promoters who have lost their jobs. Let’s hope that the chancellors relief measures helps tracks by cutting rates etc. Many tracks are rented, so hopefully promoters are not obliged to pay for facilities they are not using. i think we will get some racing this year, but not perhaps until August/September at best. As for now, it’s time the government stopped waffling around and started enforced isolation measures for our own good. It seems part of society were taking the proverbial last weekend. Stay safe everyone.

    Crazy cars.

    Colin Townson 58 had a really smart mini bodied car that I think might have gone to Sam Ostle. Probably the best mini body I have seen on an F1.

    Crazy cars.

    Thanks Broadsword, that footage was brilliant. Good job they hadn’t invented health and safety in 1954.... Fatest lap time must have been about 2 minutes but look at the size of the crowd!

    Crazy cars.

    I can't decide if the Marshall Winkley car is ugly or a thing of beauty... I remember it well and its taken me 30+ years not to come to nay conclusion. After some classy car building in his early career, Big Al really finished with a few turkeys. I quite like the look of the Action USA car but the second one is pretty awful. Jebbys Untouchable was a crazy looking car for its time, but worked perfectly, unlike the Untouchable two which came after and was pretty awful.

    Meetings

    Seems like the newly formed National Stock Car Association has failed in their first attempt to provide a unified response to the virus. Barford obviously know better than everyone else.....

    Meetings

    It’s safe to race in the North East. Barford have confirmed they are running despite all other tracks stopping racing. I hope no drivers or spectators are injured as NHS have confirmed they won’t be supporting such events. i wonder if their insurance company have been consulted and have given the go ahead?
