David Swal­low Me­mo­rial Race

Classic Racer - - PADDOCK GOSSIP -

The Wir­ral Hun­dred Club has an­nounced that the me­mo­rial race for David Swal­low will take place this year at Oul­ton Park on Satur­day, April 22. David died in 2010 from the ef­fects of car­bon monox­ide poi­son­ing when camp­ing overnight at East For­tune. Fa­ther Bill and long-term friend and spon­sor Ken Platt put for­ward a tro­phy and prize money, not only as a trib­ute to David, but also to pro­mote clas­sic sin­gle-cylin­der four-stroke rac­ing, at the same time re­mind­ing the pad­dock com­mu­nity of the dan­gers of car­bon monox­ide poi­son­ing. In the past the races have taken place at the ‘An­gle­sey Grand’ meetings in Oc­to­ber, but in or­der to avoid a clash with the CRMC sea­son-en­der at Brands Hatch, Wir­ral Hun­dred has de­cided to in­clude the trib­ute race this year as a part of its an­nual trip to Oul­ton Park. Past win­ners of the tro­phy have in­cluded Sam Rhodes, Har­ley Rush­ton and Gary Th­waites. Reg­u­la­tions are avail­able on the club’s web­site www.wirral100.co.uk
