Any clues about this and the following action photo. A suggestion is that it might be Buddy Fuller on the bike, while the car driver could be Hilton Gray. But nothing certain. Sent by Ken MacLeod. miller 23.jpg[/img]
The rather bleak and "open savannah" surroundings suggest this is Old Barn Speedway in SA (perhaps in the 1940's?) and I believe Buddy Fuller (later a stock car and hot rod promoter) did make a habit of racing his speedway bike against midgets there. But then again, I've a feeling it was you who told me that John, so if you are now not so sure.... I seem to recall hearing somewhere that Fuller was none too pleased when he lost either!
