Serious ladies

By the expressions on their faces, whatever race was about to start wasn’t ‘just for fun’… these girls were taking things pretty seriously!

I don’t know a lot about this shot, but it’s great… I just had to reach into my ’emergency stash’ as I couldn’t leave a Vespa, no matter how beautiful, sitting as the first post on a Lambretta blog. Nothing against our Wasp riding brethren, but it’s just not right.

There’s some lovely scooters including an S-Type (Ridden by a Bev?) but I think the old D still looks ‘competitive’ …although the rider seems less professionally attired! There’s legshield banners for The Innocents Lambretta Club Kent, and TheLambretta Club London. If you can add any more info, or identify any of the participants, please do!

I love old pics like this, and if you’ve got any you would like to share on the blog, get in touch and we’ll get ’em up.

  1. Think this is a Southend Rally. On the far left is June Stirrup of the Manchester Lyons, TBC from Bromley Innocents, Bev Flanagan (think!), and Christine Jackson of the Epping Forest Rakes.
    By the way, Christine may not look it here, but she is a very competitive rider!
