20th Annual Northern Stock Car Reunion

On Saturday, 2nd March 2013, starting at around 8 pm, the Veteran’s Stock
Car Association is staging the 20th Annual Northern Stock Car Reunion, an
event which is an established part of the national Stock Car Racing social calendar.


As you may remember from past letters I’ve sent in, we are always trying to
contact as many drivers (past and present), families, friends, mechanics, helpers,
supporters and track officials as we can, in order to make each annual Reunion
even better than the previous one. All our previous reunions have been very well
supported and the event is now advertised from Workington down to Stoke-on-
Trent and from Blackpool across to South Yorkshire.
However, there must still be many more out there who haven’t yet been to, or
heard about our Reunions. Maybe we could reach some of those through your
article, as more often than not, there are – or were- Stock Car Racing venues close
to the area covered by your newspaper.
Most of the sport’s top northern stars have attended at some time or other, it’s a
chance to renew old acquaintances in the friendliest of atmospheres, watch some
of professional cameraman Ray Liddy’s archive film which goes back to the
1970’s and generally have a good night out. And it’s free!!


Refreshments are available, there’s a quiz with prizes for the winning team and
the team scoring least (the winners set the questions for the following year), a free
draw for a bottle of whisky, a raffle, a fund-raising card and Memorabilia displays.
The event, as always, will be held at the Boarshurst Band Club, Greenbridge
Lane, Greenfield, near Oldham, OL3 7EU. (Note that the Entrance is at the rear
of the Club).
