Lydden Hill in Kent was a very challenging circuit, as usual we were racing at the
cold months of the year, as you probably know Lyden is also used by cars who spread mud all over the
track, and hairy hill is well named.
Pictures from Club and Circuit magazine the bend at the bottom of Hairy Hill,
bottom left is me number 203 I haven't seen this photo for 37 years before I found it on Dave's site, brings back loads of memories.
On one trip to Lyden we had a puncture in the middle of romney marshes, and guess
what the spare was also flat, bloody (Southern Self Drive), so Pete Hockley went of to find a place to fix
it. Eventually he returned with a nice inflated tyre, it was fitted and of we went again we arrived at Lyden
just about 6.00, the back doors of the van opened, and out we fell, not the best start to the days racing.
But we were used to disasters back in those days.
Lydden was also the scene of a nasty crash involving Les Rafferty and Ginger George
