21 May BEFORE THE CONTROL TOWER WAS BUILT…
Clerk of the course Brian Hoskins recalls that the first Clerks’ office was in a caravan – the same caravan that now stands on the left as you come in at Gate 1 – while events on the motocross circuit were run from a double-decker bus.
When Ronnie Scullard came to Killarney in the late 1960s, however, he needed an office, so BP kindly provided the Club with a second ‘retired’ bus, which functioned as race control on the lower level and the office of the race secretary (then, as now, a post held by Brian’s wife Joy) upstairs.
The picture was taken on the occasion of 12 Hour Endurance record attempt by the South African Honda distributor in late 1968. In the picture, from left, are two of the riders, Arnold Michaels and Peter Babrow, the late Terry Bullen and, with his back to the camera, Brian himself.
