A Personal Introduction

As a boy I always had an interest in cars in general, but not really racing cars - and then one day in July 1966, at the age of 9, my parents took me to a motor race meeting at Ingliston (near Edinburgh, Scotland) - and I was hooked!

I visited Ingliston many times during the next few years as a spectator, then later as a competitor with a couple of Formula Ford Hawkes.

During these visits I took many photographs, which lay virtually undisturbed in my attic for many years... But now, due to the facilities of the internet I am able to display a selection of these photos on this website for anyone with an interest to view.

Please feel free to browse at your leisure - perhaps some of these photos may bring back your memories of Ingliston in its heydey? If so, it would be nice to hear your comments, and I would encourage you to leave an entry on the "comments" page, as many already have. 

Please bear in mind that the majority of these images are derived from old 35mm transparencies, digitised using a relatively inexpensive scanner, so please don't expect modern digital quality! 

Please also note that this website is best viewed on a

larger screen such as a laptop or tablet, rather than a

mobile phone!
