What great photos from around 40 years ago - seems like it was yesterday.
I found an interesting note in the September 1969 issue of "Drag Racing and Hod Rod" reporting on the 1969 Swedish International meeting at Anderstorp Raceway.
There was a good UK entry with "Geronimo" along with Tony Densham in "Commuter"; Clive Skilton in the 1965 ex-Allard rail (running with a top mounted blower for the first time); Allan Herridge in the "Glacier Bearing Special"; Harold Bull's "Stripduster"; Dennis Priddle in the "Whistler" Altered, plus Ian Messenger on "Pegasus" and Dennis Norman representing the bikes.
Re "Geronimo", the unknown scribe writes - "...John Siggery with his Oldsmobile powered "Geronimo" turned in a 9.91...incidently this was the 110th run without an engine tear-down, other than one bearing change."
Unlike many of the top cars of the late 1960s, that's what I recall most about "Geronimo" - round after round, the car would rarely, if ever, fail.
