This is a really beautiful car, all that a midget should be. It looks like a prototype in design for the Skirrows. This is what midgets were meant to be, not like those rear-engine monstrosities that currently dominate the UK's GP Midget Car scene.
lynnmarie: My grandmother was Laura Eastwick, who had a sister called Eve. She married Spike Rhiando. Would be interested in finding out more about my family. Look forward to a reply from anyone who has information. Thank you
