These magic period photos are thanks to Peter Walker, who was present at the inaugural race meeting held at Wakefield Park back in 1994.
The meeting was held by the HSRCA in November 1994, after Paul Samuels and John Carter opened the circuit for motor sport. It attracted 240 entries in nine grids, as well as a healthy crowd of spectators.
Peter’s images feature several club members as well as several cars that are still active in the club today. The Caterham NUH-448 is at the hands of Mike Basquil, and was his first sports car (bought from Alan Shing who bought it from original builder and CLA member Bob Merkenhof) following Peter in his yellow Elan.
