Cadwell Park memories/photographs by Mike Dixon

Some old Cadwell photos by my friend and neighbour Mike Dixon. Iíve persuaded him to let us see some of his great archive here, note they are Mikeís copyright. Mike was a reporter and photographer for both Autosport and Motoring News in the 60s/70s, mostly at Cadwell or Snetterton. He is still behind the lens on occasion but you are more likely to find him in officialdom these days, he works as an MSA steward. Any queries on these, Mike can be contacted by e-mail at mikedixon7@lineone.net

September 1969 and Formula 3 was the main event. Tim Schenken leads Cyd Williams, Ronnie Peterson and Mike Beuttler into Mansfield corner.


The same four lead the field onto the Park Straight.


Here again at Mansfield.


Schenken passes the pits, note the Peterson grafitti!

Many thanks for posting those photos. That F3 meeting in '69 was the first meeting I marshalled at. Many fond memories of the genuine good old days. Happy days indeed.........

Wonderful pictures thanks Andrew for posting.

Interesting to see that in 1970 only Peter Hanson seems to have a rear wing, shortly after they all joined the winged brigade in F3.

As for the Lotus 73 I had forgotten how nasty it looked, although I seem to remember that Tony Trimmer woke up Europe at Monaco that year.

1972 really wasn't a good year for attractive Formula 3 cars with that Lotus 73, March 723 and the Ensign. The GRD wasn't much prettier in my opinion. They are all especially ugly compared to the cars from just two years earlier in 1970!

Fantastic photos though. I've never raced at Cadwell but it has always looked incredible.
