A tribute to Brian Powles
Brian raced from 1970 to 1985 and won 29 finals. Brian
was also a prolific engine builder and supplied several top drivers
with engines including the "Meastro" Stuart Smith. He
didn't win any major championships but did get a 2nd in the 1981
World Final at Bradford the same year he claimed a 2nd in the European
Cahmpionship at Northampton both behind Len Wolfenden. Of his 206
wins behind the wheel 52 were at Northampton but he was also quick
on the shale recording 31 wins at Long Eaton, his local track and
where he won his 1st ever final in 1970 at the Easter Trophy meeting
in only his 3rd meeting. In his 1st ever heat at Cadwell only Ron
Rogers, Stu Smith and Mick Noden were better.
Sadly Brian passed away in 2000 and this page is dedicated to him.
