Ned - you're right!

I know the piccy was taken at the Oct 80 meeting as Rick(back row) still had his novice jacket on (the only time at Lydden).

And I have from the Bantam Archive the clip from MCN -
Headline - Mikes Back -

Where it goes on to say that Mick Scutt came out of retirement to race for the new 'Fred Lauchbury' trophy. As we know Mick won the first running of the trophy. Heats ... yes heats(for a bantam race) were won by George Farenden and Rick Powell.

Mick also had 3 seconds to Pete Styles that day... Roger Louis must of lent the bike/ride all day as he was not in any results....

P.S. Eastern centre won the team race -team -
1st Scutt, Styles, Paul.
2nd South East - Sawer, Gillingham, Bridges.
3rd Lincolnshire - Laver, Wales, Chambers.

Believe me Mike I remember that 1st Fred Lauchbury trophy race well. Going to the start line I was convinced I would win it and considered "Sticky the only one who could offer me any real opposition. Approaching "devils elbow" on the first lap I was in third place. I knew I could catch the two guys in front but I was determined to do it and get a clear track ahead before "sticky" could get in contention. The consequences were - Broad side - High side = Broken collar bone. And the rest as they say is history.

PostSubject: Les Eggs BRC SE Centre archive   Wed Apr 27, 2011 7:32 am

Mike lent me a large brown envelope yesterday, the contents of which I recon come pretty close to the Holy Grail....

What a fantastic collection of photos, press cuttings and centre news going right back to the oriigin of the Bantam Racing Club. Even the August 1971 MCN article that convinced a just turned 18 Bennion that Bantam racing was the way to go. I've scanned most of it today and fired it off to Alan. The pages are a little larger than A3 size, so unfortunately some edges are missing on the scans - but the main drift is all there... Enjoy.

Chris
Very Happy

PostSubject: Could be Scrooge...   Tue Aug 30, 2016 4:37 am

Could be JS who we, the committee, referred to as Scrooge because he was brilliant at his job of getting money out of sneaky,  stingy, tight-fisted club-members some of whom who wrote cheques that bounced to the roof of The Hoop & Grapes, Holborn where a thin, young lad with a wild mop of hair served us beer.... It was  Peter [Tibbits], of course ....  

The bike looks very long. It felt long when it and John were sitting on me and Icarus-One at Llandow. We came together on Bottom Bend and crashed with me and Icarus-One underneath. The marshall that paid us attention called his mate to come and look at how the two bikes -- with me in between -- were locked together. Before skirts, of course otherwise we´d have bounced off each other´s fairings....  

John Sawer was a stalwart of the committee and the club was in really good shape in those days -- sad that he and the club passed away....

... but the memories live on.............. ............

PostSubject: They all seem confused ...   Tue Oct 04, 2016 1:22 am

Peter -- how are you then? Nicely retired with the feet up....

I reckon they all seem confused ... I didn´t see a pic of you in leathers at Lydden... But it was you-- with long hair -- at the Hoop & Grapes.

Ey oop! Something´s wrong, the pockets oughtn´t to be at the back...

Just realised my trousers are on back-to front --

-- excuse me.....
