Gerry Buck's original car, 'Old Number I' was regularly pressed into service to perform the official opening of tracks by a local dignitary, Mayor or Mayoress. With its centrifugal clutch it could be started and sent on its way to break the tape for the first official run as can be seen below where everyone waits expectantly.
Our thanks to James Riding for these super images and photos of Joe's medals recognising his long standing record. We hope to publish a number of cuttings from the album later in the year.
