Crystal Palace


The race meeting at Crystal Palace was a fun event we all trooped up to South London in our usual convoy, we parked in the grounds next to some dinosaurs as I recall I slept in the back of Raffertys Mini Pick up. In the morning stiff and cold we foraged for food some likely lad I can't recall who raided the local doorsteps for some milk sorry people. The race event was a big success it was a lovely track, I was racing the ex Wildcat Vega 125 5 port, and as usual I was getting a fantastic view of Bev Flaniganns rear end, over the years I got to know her rear end very well, as her bike was just a bit faster than mine.

The meeting came to a close and we headed of back to Fareham unfortunately my race came to an early end, my bike packed up round the last bend and I was shunted up the rear by someone and took a flying trip, boy those tracks were hard.
