A surprise for Blair Shepherd's 80th birthday last month attracted a big 'field' of drivers and friends to the VSAQ clubrooms at Newmarket. Blair's Wife Merle and family joined Ron Wanless, Bill Goode, Bob Morgan, Gus McClure, Jack Porritt, Howard Revell, Billy Moore, Bob Kelly, Jim Holden, Barry Watt, Stan Burrow, Barry Wixted, Max Newton, John Waldock and the Clough brothers, Gordon and Peter.Wanless, Goode and Shepherd each had turns on the mike, rekindling Blair's life and the swinging 60s. Kevin Torpie and Bryan Loakes represented the Solos.
The turn out was a good one, the Blair Shepherd #99 Speedcar parked right out the front. The Vintage Speedcar Association of Queensland looks forward to next months vintage speedway display and swap meet on Sunday (3rd November) at Market Street, Newmarket.
