Feilding-Rangitikei Herald - - Your Paper, Your Place -

En­gi­neer Ernie Caske, 95, passed away on Mon­day. Feild­ing-Ran­gi­tikei Her­ald re­ported last month that the Manawatu man had been re­u­nited with one of the district’s fastest rac­ing cars, 66 years af­ter he sold it. Caske built the Speed­way Mid­get Car out of his Feild­ing work­shop in 1946, but sold it in 1951 af­ter the emer­gence of stock­cars forced dirt rac­ers out of the Manawatu Speed­way.
