Up Remembered Reading

A few pages about the man who was Barlotti, Jack Barlow.

A rare photograph of Jack sent to me by Brian Jordan, who said in his emai:

"Been digging out some old photos, and came across the attached. This is our trip up to Mallory Park in late spring 1961 for the famous racing drivers invitation event. This is Mick Cox-Wilson, Jack Barlow on, I think, his first official trip out for Buckler, alos my then girl friend and my VW Transporter van. We filled up with National Benzole - then the highest octane fuel available."

Many thanks Brian, a great glimpse of karting history.
