His name is Charlie Stanton, and he's in his hand-built trolley "Red Lightning". He is 86 and is a former F1 mechanic. The local paper, Leader, told us he built 5 successful racing car in his life, one of which had a New Zealand Land Speed Record for 12 years in 1950s and 1960s, with an aircraft engine... What a fantastic guy!
The picture on the left picture was taken just after his run, being interviewed by, I assume, the Leader.
This is the end of series forks.
