Scope and content

In 1970 the SPAJERS began an experiment to see if Chariot Racing on August Bank Holiday Monday could be instituted as another wonderful Bampton event to help raise money for the senior citizens of Bampton. Sadly, it ran for only 5 years because just not enough teams entered. But those who did really entered into the spirit of the event and wore the appropriate dress and made wonderful chariots. It was a great spectacle. Some of the people who took part were
Colin Woodward
Richard Dunston
Frank Hudson
Brian 'Brusher' Radband
Robert Radband
Maurice Walsh
Ken Mullis
Tony Sweetingham
