Now there was a larger than life character. Good old Gerry. He certainly worked hard and played hard, just how most people expected racing drivers or other sportsmen to be

Keep these pictures coming, it's nice to look back at what I see as the pioneering days of top saloon car racing

"Alec Poole was the British Touring Car Champion in 1969 in a Mini Cooper S. He explained that the trick in qualifying was to perhaps not get out of the way of the bigger class Escorts and when they slowed slightly, to tuck in behind them for the all important tow! He also spoke briefly about a fearsome machine Alec raced known as the Complan Turbo Mini. That car grew from 1300cc to 1430cc during development and ended up with huge arches and a Clubman style front and as Alec explained, there were teething problems but when it went, it really went! This car was reputed to have in excess of 180bhp from an A-series turbo in 1971 and it was apparently sold to the Carribean, as was his next project, a 4.5 litre P6 Rover."

BRSCC - A Hard Days Fright 1964 (with bonus video after "the end" ) uploaded to YouTube 1st Sep 2021.
"This is another Period Roscoe Films Production of BRSCC racing cars in 1964.
Famous drivers and cars all racing and crashing during 1964 at circuits that then had little or no safety protection.
This is dedicated to all the volunteer marshals and the BMRMC (BMMC) without whom our racing wouldn't be possible."

From 'Sporting Minis' :-
Very sad to hear about the passing of Jon Mowatt. Mini racer in the late 60s and flying the flag for the Mini in the British Saloon Car Championship in the 70s. RIP
