Perton pictures


A very interesting and enjoyable theme on old airfield circuits (July 2020).

I also remember Perton, as mentioned by Bob Torrens in last month’s letters pages, but as a budding amateur photographer rather than as a rider.

My last visit, in July 1964, was cut short as I was to meet a young lady for the first time that evening.

Above and Below: Some wonderfully evocative pictures from Roy Graham. The red Dominator picture is particularly atmospheric. A Dominator De Luxe features next, the lightweight racer seems to be a CR93 Honda, though not sure on the sidecar, or who anyone is. Anybody know?

Many decisions were to be made during the following weeks.

A 1931 Scott TT Replica was offered to me for £30 but there were other considerations and life continued for a time on my Ariel Arrow.

I never did buy the Scott but had a better bargain instead and am pleased to say that I have now been married to the young lady for 54 years.

Attached are a few photos taken at Perton on a very basic 35mm camera.
