i take it you heard the story about the formica incident :hihi:

 

I was there that night with Tony and others, it was a short sprint race and those traps were rarely used so it was easy for them to set up.

What year ? I seem to remember late Sixties ,  It made headlines in Sheffield Telegraph,  I was reading it in Taylor’s barber shop on Surrey Street so it must have been at least 50 years ago
