     Mechanics - Local Drivers'

The "unsung hero's" of every racing car driver, is their "MECHANIC'S".

When it comes to making any changes or repairs to the car, this was usually done by them, under the guidance and assistance of the driver. At times, they also "burnt the midnight oil", preparing the car, even before any racing had started.

When it came to push the car and driver from the pit's out onto the track, they were there to carry out this job.

Over the years, some persons (Mechanics) used to help other drivers, especially if their usual mechanic was not available or they had some expertise in a special field that a driver wanted a problem sorted out with his car.

This page is designed to recognise the regular mechanic's for the Local Drivers.
