Hi all I used to race at Kirby and New Brighten. I was a member of the Road Hogs Team My Name is Reg Whittam, 117 I teamed up with Steve Swanwick 116, Johnny Barker and Lal.
I was racing an old Rover 90. Which always over heated. I believe I had been christened Reggie sauna baths.
We raced until a girl was killed in the pits from flying debris.
After that the rules changed regarding engine size etc, after storing our cars over winter at which time we gave it up.
I pics when I find them. Watch thus space. I'll add them when I find them.

In the tower grounds, originally it was an athletic track and football ground but also used for motorcycle races and various shows. It used during WW2 by Americans for vehicle storage, very briefly became a greyhound track before becoming a stock car track for a small number of years.
