Seventies scooter sport

John Addison kindly sent in these pictures from his personal collection. However, the passage of time means there are gaps in his memory as to exact dates and locations, so some are captioned whilst others are not.

LONGRIDGE

A few photos from the one race meeting at Longridge Circuit near Preston in 1972 (I think)

HEATON PARK

Grass track racing 1971 – my first inroduction to proper scootering. I had to ride back to Preston. Unfortunately my crash helmet was stolen!

BAITINGS DAM

Scant information. Any further information on these would be most welcome.

We’ve already had a little additional information from Ian ‘Iggy’ Mycock, John Marchant and Haydn Redfern, so thanks to them for their input. But if you can help us to fill in any more missing gaps, then please email Mau at mauspencer@classicscooterist.com.
