I love these club racing shots but am I the only forum member with photos from the North East ? 

P.S. hope to scan a few more this weekend.

This one was on another topic some time ago but may be new to someone. Taken on the 2nd of August 1980 at Cadwell Park at most likely a BFRC meeting.  Me at the front, but not for long, then Colin Pole, Steve Trasler, Jim (Trevor ) Clow and Mark Ordidge.

Here's one from Park Corner at Cadwell around 1988, i'm on my 500 #12, and the guy directly behind me #4 was (I think) called Colin Page? he rode for Stan Stephens for a while and was very handy, hidden behind him is Roger Milne, and Dave Eastough is in blue/white in the background.

Where is Oust Greg?

Just south of Stamfordham, Northumberland, the North East club had the use of it for a few years after Croft closed in '81, now called Albermarle Barracks.
