“I must stress that all three were unusual accidents in that it is not somewhere that competitors frequently leave the track.

Driver and car survived after cleaning all the corn out of the chassis and engine. Happy days. Yes great corner.Great track and great couple of guys running Thruxton with Bill Coombe and Pat Blakney.
Not the only one Iain, my brief and indigenous racing driver career came to an abrupt end there in 1968 whilst running in a new engine in Quicky's E
