Hello
Does anyone remember the midget car racing at Belle Vue Speedway Manchester in the 1930's?
If so, can anyone point me towards any information and photographs knocking about anywhere?
Thank you
Richard

Here are a couple of earlier threads about midget racing in the UK and Europe, with a few references to Belle Vue:

'American Midget Car Races' in London 1948

European midget racing

The first of these includes a photo of Charlie Pashley taken at Belle Vue in 1938.
