Are you interested in events in the UK where the Dirt track Douglas machines are given an airing?

Hi Jim,
I'm sure both readers in the UK and elsewhere in the world would be interested in accounts of current DT events in the UK. Please post in this new topic. Inclusion of photographs or videos would be welcome too.

Absolutely I am interested! I love reading Jim Gregory's reports in the New Conrod, and would welcome any more reports.

Tag Allison gets the credit for photos and writing up the cinder track reports in the New ConRod. Jim Gregory competes in the vintage cinder track expositions and organizes the team of Douglas Dirt Trackers known as the "Men in Black" (with the odd Rudge or two added.)

Of course you are absolutely right Doug - my excuse is that I was looking for a recent NCR to confirm the author's name, when my wife closed the Douglas site to do work on the computer. It seems this automatically posts the message, so it  got posted before I had corrected things!
Cheers, Graeme

TAG (I know him as Roy) Allison goes to many of the Men in Black events and he would be my source of info.

Whilst I keep in regular contact with Jim Gregory, I probably blether more to Jim's fellow "Man in Black", Terry Stone.

I've advised both Jim and Terry about this site but neither has direct access to computers and the web.

I'll speak to Roy and see if he wants to be a contact as he is closer, geographically to Jim and Terry.
