I was so busy trying to identify all the riders, hand't noticed Iris, no doubt some of the regular contributors will be able to pick out a few more faces on the fence.

I seem to remember some misprinted posters for the first trophy meeting which advertised:

'Transatanic Trophy Races'. :stoned:

Could be wrong :(
