Jersey 1947: Raymond Mays in the E.R.A.

JUST a quick note to let you all know that there’s an interesting feature now up about Gary Critcher, a motor racing fan who has located hours’ worth of footage documenting the sport’s past glories: A Driving Passion: ‘Reclaiming’ Missing Motor Sports Footage.

The image to the right is a still from a film recovered by Gary capturing the Jersey International Road Race from 1947, significant in itself as the first post-war British race.

Gary has released some of his footage on specially-made DVDs, available from his website www.yesterdaysracers.com.
