Battle of Britain Grasstrack Congratulations to Dave Mears who won the 350 Final and to Stuart Mears who finished a very creditable 6th in the 500 final
Another fine sunny day, meant a great day's riding for everyone. Think everyone enjoyed the day, thanks to all that helped on the day and to Mark and Alan for setting out the sections on the Tuursday in the pouring rain! Much appreciated!! Also of course to the landowners for allowing use of their land.
Finally thanks again to Mark for providing the pictures
And now for something completely different!
These days we're all use to having our digital cameras and smartphones, able to take super sharp images and videos at the drop of a hat but in the days before the smartphone it was a little different to say the least! The following vid is courtesy of Paul Bonner-Williams and he says "Hi info on video 1st part is Kent and Sussex MCC barbecue fun trial with Barry Burns Mick Bridger etc 2nd is arena trial in Tonbridge think there was a young Jarvis and Lampkin there last is just club trial few memories for the old stags" Enjoy.
British Veteran Speedway Riders Open Championship 2021
Held on 18th September at the Lydd Speedway circuit on a really sunny Saturday the event gave some excellent racing and with the fact that as a spectator you were right by the boards the atmosphere is really good. Oh and did I say entry was free, yes FREE!! Racing was split into 3 groups: Two Valve uprights, 4 valve uprights and laydowns. Derrick Keyes was there flying the flag for the Barham Club in the 2 valve class. Hopefully we'll be able to post some results later but due to other committments we were unable to stay for the finals.
