Classic Hot Rods from the1970’s
The pictures are from the 1977-79 when I use to go the Northampton Stadium and Hednesford Raceway to watch Hot Rods and most other oval formulas. As this is so long ago they are now referred to as classic hot rods. F1 stock cars were also a big favourite of mine, the big names around then were Stuart Smith and Frankie Wainman who’s son’s carry on the family tradition.
I also had a go at Hot Rods myself winning a couple of races a Kimbolton where there was a oval, I believe its gone now. I prepared my own car a Mini number 499. Barry Lee was the big name back then as well as George Polly, the Grimer brothers. The pictures were in poor condition so I’ve used Adobe LightRoom to improve them up as best I could.
