Love the photos. My late Father was Bill Nicholson of MGB fame (also BSA Gold Star) He never raced at Ingliston, but we went a couple of times with the late John Gott (Austin-Healey 3000) who was Dad's Best Friend & one of my Godfathers. It was so lovely to see all the photos & I loved the Chevron ones - I used to keep all the records of Chevrons Worldwide for Derek Bennett - all the results of all Chevrons were meticulously written down by me every week - How much easier it would have been if we'd had the Internet then!
I remember you racing your Hawke.

Some fantastic photos of fantastic cars.A genuine moment in time.
These images show just how much more "Relaxed" racing was in the 60&70`s.

I was a regular spectator from 60's to 74 before emigrating to Canada in 75. This site brought back some wonderful memories. One is marvelling at being able to shove a closed fist up the GT40's tail pipes, they were immense!
Another (not quite related), is of skiving off to go to the ABC theatre on Lothian Road and watching Le Mans 3-times in a row - the same day!
Those were the days .......

Excellent - oh the memories and the great times we had as Imp followers back in the late 70's - great times - I wish they could re-introduce this category of affordable racing back into the sport.
Great web site !!

Absolutely awesome collection of photos.I'm a regular at Knockhill and have been for many years.Unfortunately I never had the pleasure of experiencing the racing at Ingliston.
These guys were proper racing drivers,not afraid of the potentially lethal consequence of losing control at speed.
A brilliant site that's got me in the mood for Knockhills Classic Speedfair this weekend.

Your site really brought back some nice memories. I was a regular visitor to the Ingleston circuit from 1966 to 1974 . I have fond memories of Graham,Jenny and Gerry Birrel racing there as well as the Gold leaf team lotus 62's with John Miles and Roy pike. The formula libre races were always interesting with the Formula 5000 cars against the F2 cars ( Ken Fildes :crossle, Graham Birrel in the Ecurie Ecosse bt23c etc). Good stuff , I look forward to the new photos and hope you have some from that period. Regards A.Gierus.
