Thanks conan, I had a feeling this subject was on the Forum, I must be getting very absent minded these days.

 There used to be grass track racing at the Lydon? track on the A2 outside Dover. I spent many summer weekends watching "Don Golden Alf Hagon Malcom Simmons ect".
 I think its a Road track now. I cant recall any other names but it was very popular in my part of Kent in my teens. I used to go with Harry Tanton from Hougham.
