Was the buggy scrapped Dave?
I'm with you on the caterers, they must of been serving the track 25+ years, I know they've had a trailer at events since at least 84 time! And it's not like they are based five mins from the track either is it ..

Yes very much so Dave. I think it was the challenge race between PDRC & NDRC Midlands.

As for the Buggy I think it was scrapped, I'll find out for sure.(might be hiding out in one of the many 'huts')

Off topic, in that photo, look at the "crash barrier" on the left of the strip. I believe those wooden, stone filled boxes were removed straight after the Hillbillies funny car turned hard left and went through them like a hot knife through butter. It left a hell of a mess of stones and earth for us to clear up.

Those stone filled boxes were there for a few years after roland crashed the hillbillies car.. they were still there when Clive Skilton crashed the GTX car and I think for a few years after that..

More pics from the winter archive - once again sorry about the quality. Sorry just realised that there's a push car thread too, what a mix up!

Does anyone remember the Santa Pod fire car from the early seventies. It was a chopped up Ford 100E saloon, or quite easily have been a pick-up, painted orange with a black roll bar loaded with extinguishers? If anyone has seen Time Travel 3 or 4 DVDs (I can't remember which) the truck is pictured quite a lot sitting in the middle of the track behind the startline and Stu's chequred yellow and blue roofed box. If anyone has a picture of it then its worthy of a space on this thread.

Good info, the only ones that I remember were the american pick up (was it a sister to the Stardust tow car?) and the Zodiac or Zephyr converted from Ron Picardo's push car after it got embedded into the fencing on the startline.

The VW pickup from York went when we replaced it with the 53 Bedford fire truck which is still in one piece and I do believe restored locally to the track. It was at the Emergecny Planning Centre at Wawne near Hull and was a part of the Hull Volunteer Fire Brigade.

Then came the 1973 Little Red Wagon Dennis fire tender which was in service in Havant in Hampshire, it eventually ended up in sevice as a tanker emergency response vehicle out of HP Freightways in Hull. It once had a jag petrol motor in it but the brigade replaced it with a straight 6 Perkins. I do believe that still remains....
