Speedex painting at Bo’ness

I have been contacted by Felix Sears, a Bo’ness member who has shared a painting that was recently done of him in his Speedex coming up the Bo’ness track last year.  The painting was created from a photo taken on the day and I think has turned out very well.  The Artist’s name is Andrew Kitson ( andrewkitson.com )  who specializes in Motor racing painting.

Thank you Felix, for sharing the painting.

The second shows Cumbrian John Hunter relaxing beside his lovey Riley Sprite Special. John enjoyed himself last year coming second in Class on both Saturday and Sunday.

Our photos of the week feature ERA's at Bo'ness. The two cars featured bookend ERA production with Alistair Birrell driving R1A and Ken Wharton driving the hugely successful and highly developed R14D.
The photos come from the June 1954 meeting at the Kinneil Hill and both drivers are lining up the cars for the tricky Courtyard section of the famous old track.
Wharton set FTD at this meeting in his Cooper and also 2nd FTD in the ERA. Alistair was third in class in the smaller engined car.
