Just a little fun as the snow fails to clear and reaching Northwood tube station is not possible..............................Yet.

Seventies and eighties Kirby Stephen, Cumbrian, haulage and F1 stock car driver - Travelling Sam raced previous ex - owned stock.

Here's a few.................... Basketball
An ex 318 car of Dave Fox.
The ex Fiat bodied car of 154 Brian Powells.
The Mini bodied (wheelhouse only) of the ex 58 Colin Townsend. Later went to Frank Hudson.
An ex 385 car of Wilf Hargreaves.

Any others and in what order...............................just a bit of fun and banter, no harm done eh.

From Paul Broderick's excellent website, one of Sam's cars looks like another later Powles car ( the one with roof fins like "ears")?

No it was the earlier 154 car, no ears, noroof fins, 26 Ray Williams raced that one after years of off track action.

You are both right as he had 2 ex-Powles cars.
The one Bros refers to is the car that Powles was racing at the time of one of his retirements in 1982 (shown in the F1stoxpics site with 'Harts' sponsorship. This went to Ostle and then later went to Frank Hudson.

The car that Ray Williams had was from a later return to racing by Powles but looked very similar.

To clarify things. This was the car Brian raced in 1979/1980. The car Brian raced in 1981/1982 was never raced again after Brian retired, I think it possibly ended up with Roger Yarrow with a view to repair, but it didn't happen. The Ray Williams car was originally built during the winter of 1980/1981 along with Brian's new car and cars for Brent Savage and Dennis Knight, it was originally intended as a tarmac car for Brian.

I am convince the above car was raced by 55 Bert Finnikin also, as it was in the Tarmac sponsor colours during the mid/late seventies ? So if one is correct it has had 4 owners/drivers...............Colin Townsend, Bert Finnikin, Sam Ostle and Frank Hudson.

And even a 5th 352 Steve Wade ???????

Sam would have raced two ex Powells motors during the 70's and early 80's. 1. Fiat bodied and 2. ears wings.

I seem to recall an ex 34 Tony Leicester car being chartered around the raceways in Sam's trade mark colours. This car was also raced and owned by 385 Wilf Hargreaves during the 1975 season . Rolling Eyes .

Keep em' coming........................ cheers

The Mini bodied car was I think built for Colin Townson by Jonh Lund ex F1 95 if you search on stoxnet there is some info on there.

The Ex hargreaves car was built by Doug Cronshaw.

I would agree with the 58/95 connection as they both lived within spitting distance of each other.

Wilf 385 did race the "ex 34 car" and not Sam, as I earlier mentioned. Premier - we were both correct about the Cronshaw built ex Hargreaves car. I seem to have a feeling 192 Dave Grantham also raced this car or one very much in the same cut, later in his racing career.

Cheers.

Nothing to add to what has been said already really, but I just wanted to say how I enjoy threads like this one. Tracing a cars history and bringing back all sorts of memories......epecially good when people take the time to add piccies.....thanks to all who have contributed.
Just as a side note, I seem to recall Sam racing a car that looked like the Tony Leicester car (his number was in a star on the "boot") but I have no idea what it's history was, but I don't think it was an ex 34 car.

I remember as a young lad managed to get myself on the front of the crowd at white city world final,where bert in said mini bodied car was followed in on first lap with others, a scary moment for a young lad with nowhere to run. Shocked

The ex hargreaves car was NOT built by Doug it was in fact a very good friend of his who measured Dougs car & then built them for Wilf(i have the drawings & pics of it being built)

It was his mechanic MY DAD - Duncan Schofield

That's the one Lee (thought I was still reasonably supplied with the grey matter!!)
Looking at it now it's fairly obviously a Cronny copy......wonder what the great man thought of it compared to the real thing!!??

Yes that car above was Wilf Hargreaves', only had a conversation with old man Frank (212) about this car at semi final night at brum last year and he said he bought the car of Wilf for the engine as he wanted a chevy at the time, raced the car a couple of times as For Sale, once i know of was at stoke raced as 212, and then the car got sold onto Sam ostle after Frankie had the engine out of it, at which point Frankie replied Sam wrecked it liked he wrecked everything lol.

Colin Townson sold the mini bodied car to Keith Jubb 245 and I think Sam bought it of him raced it and then sold it to Frank Hudson.
