SALOON CAR RACING OF THE 1970's GERRY TAYLOR.
A COLLECTION OF MY MOTOR RACING PHOTOGRAPHS, FROM THE LATE SIXTIES AND THE SEVENTIES. FEATURING MY MINI AND MY FORD ANGLIAS. A BIG CREDIT IS DUE HERE TO MY MECHANIC DAVID NEALE, AND TO MY WIFE FOR ALL THE HOURS SPENT TRAVELLING TO CIRCUITS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. THANKS FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT. THIS IS DEDICATED TO MY LATE FRIEND ROGER WILLIAMSON. NOW, WHY NOT TAKE A LOOK AT MY FACEBOOK PAGE, JUST ENTER GERRY TAYLOR SALOON CAR RACING, AND SEE WHAT IT WAS LIKE BACK AT THE BEGINNING OF TOURING CAR RACING.Thanks. IT SEEMS AS THOUGH I AM THE ONLY DRIVER FROM THOSE EARLY DAYS OF SALOON CAR RACING THAT HAS A VIDEO UP AND RUNNING, AND I WOULD LOVE TO SEE OTHERS. SO IF YOUR OUT THERE GUYS, LOOK OUT THOSE OLD PHOTOGRAPHS, AND GET THEM ON HERE, THERE IS STILL A LOT OF INTEREST IN WHAT IT WAS LIKE BACK THEN. WITHOUT US DOING IT, IT WILL BE LOST FOREVER. REMEMBER THERE IS NO ARCHIVE ANYWHERE FROM ANY OF THE CIRCUITS. IT REALLY IS UP TO US TO KEEP IT ALIVE.
