Details taken from a 1968 programme of Severn Valley's race meeting at Longdon Nr Upton upon Severn. This appears to show that Phil Dyke shared the race car H58 with his father Bill Dyke who raced under the number H59 - which is the reason why there appears to be two different numbers on the Dyke mobile for that era.
Results for Tom Davis found in the Western Valley report for 31/8/1969.

This picture was placed on the Retrograsser Facebook page and I now recognise it as John Williams. This picture was submitted by Lee Tucker - Grandson of Merv Tucker and coincidentally has a 'home' connection with me as this was taken in Eastnor Park. Research through some Severn Valley minutes tells the story that this was on September 5th 1971 by kind permission of Major Hervey Bathurst. Having delved a bit deeper - the Internet has turfed up that the temperature for this day in 1971 was almost 23 degrees. The takings for the Ice Cream van was over £109.00!! Joe Fitzpatrick recalls driving to Eastnor for one race meeting and his Ford Zephyr (road car) boiled over on the journey.

A classic picture taken by Tony Baylis. C100 Malcolm Pritchard
This is one of Chris in his Special. It was taken at one of the heats at the Midland League Open - probably late 80's.
Les Clark. An unfortunate crash on the fast Bredon Hill track saw the hospitalization of two of the most popular local Specials stars. Les Clark and Brian Jenkins tangled on the fast part of the circuit and both were rushed to hospital by the St. John crew. Brian was released with bruising and shock but 'Big Les' was less fortunate, suffering two broken legs. Lorry driver Les is a dedicated Autograss man, with a keen family - wife Ann and two children Jason and Mandy. This was his first year in Specials after four seasons in Saloons and the Rover V8 was severely wrecked at the front in the crash. Ralph Tustin.
Sadly, Gerald's career came to an end in this horrific crash which cut his racing career short. John Taysom and Derek Price examine the damage.
Gerald progressed to two trophies in 1961 and the tally of Prize cards (shown here on the bonnet) of yet another Classic car increased too.
Think Gerald must have been giving the car a decoke! Bonnet appears to be missing.

Trophy being received by Terry Childs from Bill Maynard. Yorkshire Nationals 1979.
Presentations always drew the capacity crowd - especially when there was someone special presenting the trophy - in this case Chris Tarrant of Tiswas days. Chris attended the 1978 Nationals at Hanbury Raceway in his capacity as A.T.V's star of Saturday Morning Show host on Tiswas.. and for your old money A.T.V. was Associated Television prior to ITV.

This picture was also supplied by Jacob Williams. John's number was always 717. It is beleived that he carried this number through from Thomas Chapel days to Hereford to PHD. It is believed that John's eldest son Jonathon also raced under the number 717. Jacob remembers that his father mentioned that he had been British Champion during his racing career and there are several trophies that were awarded to John. Jonathon continued his racing career until the late eighties/early nineties. This has now been discovered to be taken at Eastnor Park in 1971. A very hot September day.
