2018 Event update
Together we have had three glorious events with last years being particularly special. However as you can imagine these things take enormous effort and hard work to both organise and run. We have decided that SPST will be taking a break from a full blown event in 2018 and will be putting together a plan for 2019…
However we might find time for a special Syston Park party on the day for all those involved with a bbq, bar and motors!
Anyone who has purchased tickets for 2018 will receive a full refund and we will keep everyone updated…so watch this space!
The birth of a legend
T W Mays wins the 12hp class inaugural hill climb at Syston Park in a Humber, accompanied by his son Raymond.
Britains first road race circuit established at Syston.
Legends of motor cycling flock to race at Syston such as Stanley Woods, C. J. Williams and Tommy Cann.
Raymond Mays tests ERA R1A at Syston
Just 20 miles from the ERA factory in Bourne and well known to Mays, Syston Park was the perfect venue for some secret testing before its launch at Brooklands.
Inter-‘Varsities begin at Syston
Mays, Howe, Fernihough, AFP Fane… The drivers and their machines were world class. Sadly racing ended in 1939 never to return until…..
Testing the waters
A group of friends gathered seventy or so cars and bikes for a fabulous party.
Staying true to the spirit of pre-war motorsport we held our first of what is planned to be an annual event.
