This week I got hold of a book about exhibition cars and bikes which includes two pictures of Rocket FCs and Rocket Dragsters racing in the USA long before Sammy and Al Eierdam raced over here. I remember at the time their races being billed as the world's first rocket races; I guess that one's going the same way as that Beadle v Snow final at the Pod being the world's quickest FC race :)

If we have any members on that board could they point Sammy's son to the couple of threads we have on here, I'm sure he would be interested to see them.
