Midgets for Europe, Short Circuit May 1977

Six of the countries top Midget car drivers are to compete in the European Midget Championship at Kaldenkirchen West Germany on May 30th. Included in the line up will be British Champion Malcolm Goodman a former Hot Rod driver from Bedfont, Middx., East Anglians Mick Bonner, Roland Parker and Basil Craske. Drivers completing the British line up are expected to be Brian Harding and Sussex driver Alf Boarer.

The GP Midget Club have completed negotiations for 14 meetings so far this year at home, mainly with the smaller promotions. By now meetings will have taken place at Bristol's Mendips Raceway, and at Swaffham. The large Swaffham track should be ideally suited to the Midgets which have proved to be the fastest machines on the shirt circuit scene. Meetings are also scheduled for Boston and Norwich stadiums and Bovingdon. Possibilities of meetings at Spedeworth and PRI tracks have not been ruled out at this stage. The Midget cars have always had some of the most dedicated drivers, but have never really caught the public imagination. This year though with enough drivers on the books to field large entries, and a fairly regular schedule, the Midgets could be on the way to a better following.
