JIM CLARK & JACKIE STEWART RACING MILK FLOATS

I have raced at Ingliston (Edinburgh) but in the mid-sixties I saw Jim Clark and Jackie Stewart race electric milk floats there; it was very funny.

I have the programme that Jackie and Jim both signed on the day. (see pictures opposite)

I think the race was for the Milk Marketing Board because Ingleston was in the middle of the Royal Highland Show Ground and it was a temporary race circuit. The Milk Marketing Board had a big influence on agriculture at that time and they had a unit on the edge of the track. It was very funny to see two Formula One drivers on Milk Floats and to think that Jim was a World Champion at the time – It was all a long, long time before Top Gear!
