In memory of the late Kenny White I'm looking forward to helping bring his old outfit back to life with my dad and kenny's passenger, John Smith. We hope to get it entered in at least one vintage event in 2013, let's see how far we get! To be continued....

I wish the Ace of Aces was still running, some of the best grasstrack meeting ever in my opinion.

Sideburn Magazine sent me these shots of a vincent powered outfit looking like something out of a Mad Max film on display at last weekends Kempton Park classic off road show. Great to see some vintage sidecars still knocking about. I'm going to be involved in bringing an early 70's outfit back to life in 2013, more on that to follow......
Update: I received this from my new goldmine of Grasstrack facts and artefacts, Carl Croucher. Thanks Carl.
'In answer to your question regarding the pictures of the Vincent grass track outfit YES they are one and the same! The black and white picture is of it in its hayday being raced right handed by Alan Jones from Liverpool. the colour pictures show it set up for left hand racing in the vintage class (plus the odd trip into mainstream left hand racing) in the hands of its owner Stuart Towner.'

Great American video from the 60's featuring flat-tracking, hill-climb, road racing, what looks like a mixture of trials and enduro and at 14:46 into the clip my first look at American GRASSTRACK!!
Haven't worked out how to post vimeo clips on here yet :(
