MORE EARLY POTTS

Here are some photos I downloaded years ago from an obscure website which had a number of albums of early ‘fifties Ulster motorsport including Dundrod 12 August 1950, when there was 74 miles handicap race over 10 laps. As well as Ron Flockhart who is pictured in the book, there were 500cc entries from Joe Potts jnr, Comish Hunter and Pat Prosser. Prosser was in a Cooper and crashed, I don’t think Potts started and Hunter, #31, was, like Flockhart ‘unhappy’ according to Autocar. These poor resolution but useful photos show the front and left side of the Flockhart car #22 (note the forward steering rack position) and Hunter’s #32. If nothing else these add a little to what is known of the early Potts cars. Also posted is the entry list from the programme courtesy Richard page.
