Stock car racing fans urged to attend northern reunion

MOTORING enthusiasts from Southport and the surrounding areas are being invited to take stock of the resort's historic association with a full-throttle racing series.

Members of the Veterans' Stock Car Association said they will be holding a reunion meeting on Saturday, March 2 for people from across the north of England associated stock car racing, and urged anyone who has a connection to the resort's historic connection with the sport to get in touch.

Keith Thompson, a member of the group and a Formula One stock car driver in the late 1960s, said: “All of our previous reunions have been very well attended. However, there must still be many more out there who haven't been to, or heard about, our reunions.

"Many of the sport's top northern stars have attended at some time or other, it's a chance to renew old acquaintances, watch archive footage going back to the 1970s, and generally have a good night, and it's free."

The reunion event will be held at the Boarshurst Band Club in Greenfield, near Oldham, and starts at 8pm. For more information send an email to or give Keith a call on 01457 865936 or 07980 149836.
