Replica and Restored Stock Cars, a newly built M. G. Magnette, Retro-Rods, old time drivers being dragged from their cosy firesides on nights out, where old rivalries are rekindled….. the UK short track time machine is rolling. Where will it all end, asks our own fifty-something vintage model, Paul Huggett? Is nostalgia what it used to be? You decide (if you’re old enough).
Malcolm Foskett tries on some Midget racers for size.
Canadian Tour part 1
It all started when our man in Canada, Rick Young, told us that Ron Morin, the promoter at his local speedway, Cornwall, had suggested it would be good to get a Brit driver over to race in his personal car, a ProStock class dirt track Chevy, which Ron races at other local tracks between running his own. Naturally, SC’s Malcolm Foskett, with a bit of dirt racing way back in his long and chequered career fitted the bill!
Nudge and Spin, Ramp Jump The Works
Fozzy joins the ORC Team for a little Nudge and Spin for a trip to Croydon Motor Club, and takes part in a ramp jump – funny thing to do for a track test. It was a one off!
