From peterking@talk21.com

I used to race bangers way back in the middle seventies at such exotic locations as Thorrington Cross,Clacton,Arena Essex,Walthamstow,Harwich,Lydden Hill,Iwade,Dover and also at the west country tracks at Smeatharpe,St Day & St Austell plus several others that created many good memories. I used to race with the number 208. I was also a member of the Essex Vermin team along with my brother John.Many a good team race we had!!!
I now reside in the Shetland Isles so as you can gather, I do not get to any meetings anymore.
If anyone wants to get in touch, you can reach me at :-

My name is Vic Berretta. I live in the town of Allentown,Pa. in the U.S. I visit Roger's web site from time to time, and got interested in the racing scene across the pond. Good to see legends running there. They now have mini cup cars and slingshot dirt cars here which run about $4000 U.S. I'interested in Grand national, Rods , eurocar and british touring car series. I ran enduro's(like bangers) ten years ago, and I'm now trying to set up a ride in street stock or road course enduro racing. I follow most motorsports in the U.S. favoring Featherlite Modified series, Busch and Truck racing. I also collect slot cars and some diecast collectibles. I live aboiut 1/2 hour from Nazareth Intl. Raceway and am within a day's ride to Richmond, Pocono, Dover and Loudon. One of my goals is to try and catch a rod or grand national in the future, But I' want to get some more track time in the U.S before I do that. Drop a line sometime. Thanks.

He would like to hear about any good meeting coming up at other circuits, as he says that always seem to miss out. Contact Carl by emailing him at carl.maslen@virgin.net .


The following from Bob Mooney is self explanatory, why not drop Bob a line.

Back in the mid-sixties I lived in England for two years(near Ipswich)and I had no idea that there was circle track racing there until I read your magazine the other day.

I have raced for over thirty years, mostly on short dirt tracks(1/4,1/3,1/2 and 5/8 mile)and recently I have had to give up driving. I have an IMCA modified that I just pulled my motor out of and now I have to take the car back to the owner in California(I'm in Arizona)that will be the end of my driving career. The only good thing about it is I can now become a full time fan.

If any race fans there would like to chat about any kind of racing E-Mail me at; race@goodnet.com and keep in mind the only kind of race cars I like are the ones with an engine and four wheels. TA'
