Weird or wonderful – The Alien
Keith ‘Spud’ Tatum decided to build himself a new Supastox, around Christmas time he put his thoughts to use. He decided that what was needed was a car with most of the weight on the inside and as far back as possible.

Spedeworth 1300 Stock Cars – Up or Down?
There is conflicting opinion in the bars, on the terraces, and in the pits, at Spedeworth race meetings about the state of their 1300cc Stock Car formula. Some say it’s on the wane, others that it’s about to boom, big-time. Paul Huggett asks a few of the drivers.
