Default Old skool shots from 1989

Hi I'm new to the forum but I was a member of the ribble club back in the late 80's, early 90's when it was at west view leisure centre.

Back in 89 (I think) there was a special event at Balshaws school (my old school) in Leyland that was organised by my brother, a few of his school buddies and the club for the summer fair. I was using my Schumacher Topcat, the green one that can be seen in the photos.

I hope to soon be returning to racing with a vintage Cougar once I've received (stolen) one from my brothers stash of many he has, he still races down in Portsmouth where he lives
