CLASSIC KART COLLECTION OF NORTHUMBRIA
Joined Nov 12 2010
Started karting 1966, Zip MkII K77. Progressed to Zip European, Californian etc., GP15L,Mk16 etc., Petry, BM, Hewland, TKM. Mainly drove Zipkarts, did Team Selection in '68 and all the various sprint meetings in the southeast and midlands. Got talked into endurance racing by Stan Owen and loved it! Six hours through to 24 Hour races. Did Shenington 6 Hr with Bruno Ferrari, Caen 24Hr with Martin Hines and Roger Goff and many French races with Malcolm Paul and sometimes Roger Moth plus various other guys. Nearly won Paris 6Hr and won LeMans 500K twice. Broke collar bone at Brignoles 24Hr in '76 but that was about the worst injury.
Finally retired in '80 when I got married although I did buy a Zip 981/TKM from Reg Dormer for fun a little later. That's about it!
