Well I'm not giving up on you miserable lot.

So as the title says, here's my three.


1988. ( I think), John Lund, Hednesford
1994. Andy Smith, Bradford
1999. Murray Harrison, Coventry.

It was the 1991 not 1988 Hednesford that was lucky for Lund.

One choice only.

217 Lee Fairhurst Skegness.

Yep, it was 1991 for Lund at Hednesford. Spectacular last half lap involving Falding, Finnikin, Lund and a lap-down Richard Pratt.

1988 was a bit of a battle between Lund and Falding, but as soon as Falding hit the fence courtesy of Lund's bumper, it was all over.

I can't really disagree with any of the suggestions so far. I'd go for either Lund in 1991 or Fairhurst in 2012 - but they were completely different forms of luck!

WHAT! affraid affraid affraid

Maybe he has a slice of luck/good fortune in getting a slot on the grid but to race and win a World Final from dead last ain't lucky in my eyes!!!


Sorry, but for me it has to be Murray Harrison's win in 1999... Just the right man in the right place at the right time!!!!

As for 1998 World Final, my shrink says that there wasn't a World Final in that year, all null and void I'm afraid fellas sunny

Forgive my fading memory Dave, but why was Till lucky in 89? As I recall( getting harder as the years pass) the flag dropped and he was gone? Flag to Flag!

Ok. As no one else has nominated him.....1995 Keith Chambers. I don't believe any of the rumours regarding most of the opposition having bet on him at 200 to 1odds Shocked

1979 was my first world final.

Would appreciate someone giving me a summery of the race as I really cannot remember.

Why was 212 lucky.

I do remember 1980 and well yes.

1979 - as I posted on one of your other threads, after catching and passing 212, 154 was taken out of the lead by a backmarking overseas driver in a Wainman supplied car.

1989 - yes 85 got away well but was lucky that 53 recovered from an incident immediately behind him and sat there for the rest of the race which stopped 2nd place 33 landing the killer blow.

scratch scratch scratch

In the early laps (lap 6) a driver was just coming off the second bend, got forced onto the infield, and he managed to rejoin the track on the fourth bend.......in the process the race leader, potential winner and arch rival of this driver managed to get wiped out big time........almost being rolled over by a T-Bone off the infield........and only the lap before the pre race favourite and, at that time race leader, was wiped out by a New Zealander driving a hire car supplied by the unfortunate wayward driver  Suspect    

This driver then went on to be crowned World Champion, after only completing 24.5 laps on track....... he also survived an appeal from the second placed driver too.........

now how lucky was that Evil or Very Mad

Revenge is a dish best served 12 months later
And then repaid the next day at NIR 👍👍👍

I do miss those 2 racing each other.
Magic F1 times.
