Sydney sidecar star, Bert Martin also drove midgets. Here he is in the V860 # 60. This was the car Reece Discombe brought over from New Zealand as # NZ35 in the very early 50s. The car was later raced by Johnny Peers and Fay Taylour as # 12 and in Qld. successfully by young star driver Kev Jefferson.

Irish woman driver Fay Taylour toured Australia twice in the 50s. She drove this V860 ( ex Brewer 48 car ) on her first tour.
The Fay Taylour / Edna Wells match races at the SSG in the 50s were unique in Sydney midget racing. Fay drove the ex Brewer V860 and Edna drove the A model # 6. Edna beat Fay in two out of three and had never driven a midget before these match races.
Thank you Geoff for this historic collection of Sydney midget racing photos in the 50s.
