I have been contacted by Malcolm Pyke, (A.K.A. Spyke to all scooter racers of the late 60's and early 70's) editor of the original Club & Circuit magazine. (Click here to read Spykes Club & Circuit magazine story)
It ran for four years between 1969 and 1973 and was sold at every UK race meeting
To my delight, he tells me that he is still in possession of every magazine printed in that 4 year span.

Check out some of his magazine front covers

He has already sent me some photos from those early years(see below) and I'm hoping to receive more material to share with the world via my website. I hope this stimulates some more folks out there to have a dig around their lofts, and seek out some piccys

After checking out the piccys below, click here for Spykes photo link page

The last three photos are of what happened with Nev Frost after scooters, which was similar to Ron Moss.
As the second image shows from it's number one plate, Nev was King of Lydden for two years running
on the JJM prepared Yamaha 350cc twin.
For an enlightened view on one of the reasons Nev was such a successful rider, check this out...
