  2. I should have read the question properly before I started..... This isn't quite what was being asked, but anyway.... Total number of meetings that year. Percentage of shale meetings that were on a Saturday Percentage of tarmac meetings that were on a Sunday For example, in 1980 there were 132 meetings. 34 of the 52 shale meetings were on a Saturday, which is 65.4%, and 38 of the 80 tarmac meetings were on a Sunday, which is 47.5%. 1980 132 34 / 52 = 65.4% 38 / 80 = 47.5% 1981 141 29 / 53 = 54.7% 41 / 88 = 46.6% 1982 128 38 / 65 = 58.5% 36 / 63 = 57.1% 1983 121 38 / 64 = 59.4% 33 / 57 = 57.9% 1984 97 34 / 59 = 57.6% 27 / 38 = 71.1% 1985 87 32 / 50 = 64.0% 34 / 37 = 91.9% 1986 89 33 / 48 = 68.8% 33 / 41 = 80.5% 1987 89 31 / 54 = 57.4% 30 / 35 = 85.7% 1988 88 35 / 55 = 63.6% 29 / 33 = 87.9% 1989 93 37 / 53 = 69.8% 38 / 40 = 95.0% 1990 93 36 / 51 = 70.6% 38 / 42 = 90.5% 1991 92 37 / 52 = 71.2% 38 / 40 = 95.0% 1992 90 37 / 53 = 69.8% 35 / 37 = 94.6% 1993 85 35 / 50 = 70.0% 32 / 35 = 91.4% 1994 65 27 / 37 = 73.0% 23 / 28 = 82.1% 1995 63 26 / 38 = 68.4% 18 / 25 = 72.0% 1996 63 25 / 42 = 59.5% 13 / 21 = 61.9% 1997 67 27 / 46 = 58.7% 12 / 21 = 57.1% 1998 46 18 / 29 = 62.1% 11 / 17 = 64.7% 1999 47 20 / 31 = 64.5% 12 / 16 = 75.0% 2000 52 16 / 32 = 50.0% 10 / 20 = 50.0% 2001 58 17 / 37 = 45.9% 12 / 21 = 57.1% 2002 59 18 / 39 = 46.2% 10 / 20 = 50.0% 2003 54 18 / 32 = 56.2% 12 / 22 = 54.5% 2004 61 13 / 28 = 46.4% 17 / 33 = 51.5% 2005 56 16 / 27 = 59.3% 13 / 29 = 44.8% 2006 55 16 / 26 = 61.5% 13 / 29 = 44.8% 2007 58 15 / 28 = 53.6% 14 / 30 = 46.7% 2008 61 16 / 29 = 55.2% 12 / 32 = 37.5% 2009 60 16 / 33 = 48.5% 10 / 27 = 37.0% 2010 53 17 / 29 = 58.6% 9 / 24 = 37.5% 2011 51 13 / 25 = 52.0% 9 / 26 = 34.6% 2012 52 15 / 26 = 57.7% 9 / 26 = 34.6% 2013 52 16 / 27 = 59.3% 10 / 25 = 40.0% 2014 52 17 / 26 = 65.4% 10 / 26 = 38.5% 2015 50 16 / 27 = 59.3% 9 / 23 = 39.1% 2016 51 15 / 26 = 57.7% 10 / 25 = 40.0% 2017 46 9 / 22 = 40.9% 10 / 24 = 41.7% 2018 42 9 / 18 = 50.0% 10 / 24 = 41.7% 2019 42 13 / 26 = 50.0% 6 / 16 = 37.5%

    Indeed. We pass it on the way to Skeg. There's a load of history about it on display in The Marrowbone & Cleaver pub in Kirmington village. Owned and occasionally run by Guy Martin off the telly.

    Like I said.... controversial! 😁 Looks like Humberside forgot to rename their airport. 🤣 Whatever county or unitary authority it is, the region that covers Birmingham, Perry Barr, Cradley Heath, Wolverhampton, Hednesford? Hampshire: Aldershot, Portsmouth, Ringwood, Southampton ?

    Well, I did say it would be controversial! 😆 Lancashire was a lot bigger in the 1950s and included Manchester, Wigan, and Liverpool. (And Bolton, Carrot Cruncher! 😜) Most of the counties have changed over time so you get all sorts of oddities. The original Belle Vue was in Lancashire but the second one was in Greater Manchester. Only the first Scunthorpe was in Lincolnshire, the other two were in Humberside. Staines was in Middlesex when the track was running, but it's now in Surrey, which is also in Greater London. And so on...

Gil Delamare was part of the French contingent that came over for the first ever meeting in the UK. He was an actor and stuntman, and his works includes the films Paris Holiday and That Man From Rio, and a public information film about seatbelts. Jean Pâqui appeared in 27 films, starting with L'Assommoir in 1933 and ending with Serenade Of Texas in 1958. That was his stage name. He was actually Jean-François de Thonel, a nobleman from Orgeix in the south of France. Aside from acting, he was also an accomplished horseman and won bronze in the equestrian event at the 1948 Olympics. His horse skills earned him the nickname The Knight Of Orgeix, which in French is Le Chevalier d'Orgeix. That's the name he used when he raced at New Cross in April 1954, and won both finals. Terry Denton from Leeds was magician and escape artist. He raced under his stage name Devil Dare, before becoming Denton de Gray. He appeared in The Heart Within and It Happened In Athens before a career mainly playing Henry VIII on stage. However, his biggest claim to fame is that he won the first ever race at Bradford. Big thanks to everyone that took part, I suppose it passed a couple of weeks.

    Alec Le Croissette's son has just confirmed to me that the footage was an actual race meeting.

    Yes - he's the only driver known to have won a final with two different names. Jack Stewart definitely won races with more than one name, and Dick Bradley and Geoff Pymar probably did, but not finals. Reading it back now, the question still has some ambiguity. I meant drivers that are listed on IMBD and have appeared in a film. The actual driver, not someone else with same name. As in, they worked in the film industry, rather than they were on a game show or they were in a film about themselves that appeared on a local news show, as many drivers have done. (I'd have no way of verifying answers like that) I'm not sure if the footage in Stock Car was footage from an actual meeting, or if it was filmed specially for the movie - in which case it might not have been the car's owners driving. In either case, the drivers aren't listed on IMDB. I'll post the remaining answers that I know of in a day or two, if nobody's got them. In fact, I'll drop the one post per day rule, so have as many goes as you like. 173 👍

    BriSCA F1 is Back

    It's French for "great prize" and there's loads of motoring events called Grand Prix, not just F1, so you'd think he wouldn't have much of a claim on it. But based on how they carried on over the F1stockcars.com website, I wouldn't be surprised.
  12. On this day, 29 July 1984 and its a sunny Sunday afternoon in Greater Manchester, and a good one for Bolton driver Warren Jackson (104). It was this afternoon where Warren recorded 25% of his career victories in BriSCA F1, with a heat and final double, which was also his only ever final win. Warren won heat 1 from Frankie Wainman (212) who was 2nd and Richard Ainsworth (354) 3rd. In his ex Len Wolfenden (190) A1 kits car, he then came out and won the final from 2nd placed George Braithwaite (92) and again Richard Ainsworth 3rd. Photos © Ian Bannister / Howard Murtaugh

    Not sure about this one. The Gerry Baker on IMDB is probably not the same person as Gerry Baker the driver. But Gerry Baker is the name of a driver and Gerry Baker is listed on IMDB as appearing in a film. There's a few more. Q10 will be the last one for now, as I've run out of questions.

    Please follow the conditions of the meetings, which will be well advertised on here and elsewhere, well in advance. If that includes wearing a mask, then please either wear a mask or don't go. Your opinion on masks is irrelevant. If the health inspector turns up to find that loads of spectators aren't abiding by the rules then they might close the track down. Claiming that you're being oppressed by a Communist state won't get you anywhere.
