Clas­sic Racer Ar­chive

Classic Racer - - WHAT'S INSIDE -

Three great im­ages from mo­ments in time when the rac­ing was pure and those who did it took no pris­on­ers. Th­ese pho­tos come di­rectly from the Mor­ton’s Me­dia Ar­chive and you can buy your own copies of any im­age in there – de­tails are through­out this very mag­a­zine. Check it out.

YEAR: 1954 ( CR THINKS)// CORNER: QUARRY CORNER// HOT AND DUSTY IT MIGHT BE EARLY ON, BUT THOSE IN FRONT IN RHODE­SIA ARE GET­TING ALL THE BEN­E­FITS. THOSE BE­HIND ARE STRUG­GLING A BIT IN COM­PAR­I­SON.

IT’S not the most pris­tine of cir­cuits, granted, but the old rac­ing maxim ‘it’s the same for every­body’ has never been more true. The re­sults of the race have been lost to the sands of time (un­less you can help us out and you know who graced the podium) but what we do know from the CR ar­chive is that Jan­nie Stander leads B Fer­reira and G Macarthur. Our sage pho­tog­ra­pher from the event has left a nice note with this im­age. It says: “This is the first lap of the race.the con­trol tower on the hill­top en­joys a view of all of the track.the dust that’s vis­i­ble in the pho­to­graph wasn’t too bad and didn’t re­ally spoil the rider’s view.” Try telling that to num­ber 112.You can’t see num­ber 112? Ex­actly.
