Any body remember going to the banger racing at
New Brighton?
Might remember Stan Woods invader driver no 513 he was allways very spectacular and had a very big following of fans unfortunatley he passed away last year. But there is to be a memorial race meeting held at Stoke raceway on the 28th April
some of you may know it as chesterton it is to be a old skool type meeting for pre 1970 ish cars and there is a massive booking list already many drivers that raced at new brighton and crewe coming out for guest appearances.
just thought some of you might be interested if so hope to see you there thumbsup
