Dave Tooley's Scooter Racing Links Page

I would like this site to become the premier port of call for anyone who wants to savour how Scooter Racing in the U.K. used to be in it's early days. My specific scooter racing era is from '71 to '74, having moved on to Motorcycle Sidecars, but I was interested in it and spectated for a good few years before and after that.
Due to the limitations of my budget in those days, most of my photos are in black and white. If anyone has some good action colour photos of Scooter Racers of around that era, I would be pleased to display them within my site.

Please submit them to me via the email link below, including some info on the riders, circuits and year if possible.

Newsflash:-Friday 9th April. It is with great sadness that I have to report the death of Nev Frost, that GREAT sportsman and icon from those halcyon scooter racing days in the late 60's / early 70's. Details are sketchy at the moment, but I will clarify in due course.

Ron Moss
It's great to see that RON MOSS, my old Racing pal from way back when has finally succumbed to peer pressure and had a web site built by his son to recognise the historic contribution Ron and Supertune made to Scooter Racing.
He was a Racer in every sense of the word, and his historic battles with Ray Kemp in the 200cc class kept us all enthralled at every meeting they parried together.
I tried to blag some info out of him for my own site but credit where credit is due, he's made an excellent job of it.
Good job Ron, I wish you well in your new venture.
