Sunday 19 June 1977, Alwalton

(Peterborough Standard) Grand Prix Midgets made their racing debuts at Alwalton during Sunday’s Motorsport Promotions meeting and judging by the acclaim they received from the crowd it will not be their last appearance

Just back from the World Championships in West Germany the cars, like overgrown Dinky machines produced some fine racing in their three events

So keen were some of the Midget specialists that they, Brian Harding, brother Fred and Wayne Doidge came from Brighton on Saturday and camped overnight in readiness for Sunday’s meeting.

Luton’s Terry Teden won the first race after starting near the front but in the other races it was the faster men from the back of the grid who finally got to grips with the circuit to power through to win.

Race two saw Norwich’s Basil Craske fight a battle royal to pip Malcolm Goodman of Middlesex for the honours while Goodman managed to win race three.
