Tom Vivian was a Dowty Mining Equipment Design Engineer.
He used to compete at drag races with a motorbike called Tomfoolery.
Tom at Shakey, or Long Marston Raceway as it was known.
Both ran 8 second passes Tom Vivian and ‘Tomfoolery’ a blown 750 Triumph, not much comfort there!
Thanks to Keith Harmon who took the pictures at Shakespeare County Raceway near Stratford.
Tom has retired but helps to build race engines in Cheltenham.
