Look At Life - Smashing Through - 1959 Stock Car Racing

This is an awesome look at the early days of British stock car racing at Brafield Stadium, Northampton in 1959. The sport was only 7 years old when this colour film was made and includes some great shots of Car Breakers Yards back in the day....(Original air date: 1959-01-01)

It reminds me, a bit, of when I used to take my lads to Bovingdon in the late 70s and into the 80s.That's now a housing estate.

Dad used to take me to Aldershot and Wimbledon when he was on leave back in England and I was on school holidays. When he transferred back to the UK full time in the late 60's and I was no longer at boarding school Aldershot became a regular Thursday night outing. I'm sure I remember going to Aldershot Boxing day one year.. Happy days.

Great little clip. Thanks.

It was always a bit of a job to get to Aldershot stadium on a Thursday evening in the late 60s early 70s from where I live, but we used to manage it towing my Hot Rod on a 2 wheeled trailer with my Anglia van 4 up. No M25 in those days

Looking back at some old meetings I found this on the internet from 1972. I hadn't qualified for the big race but got a couple of 2nd places in the other heats, one where I almost won against a bloke by the name of Barry Lee
