Flashback Friday: John Lund through the years

Something a little different this week; a look back at some of John Lund’s best moments over the last 40 years…


John at Nelson, back in 1976. His local track and one where he got his first race win in September 1976.


Up to Blue – seen on parade lap at White City, Manchester.


A race win as a red top at Rochdale.


Lined up in the staging area at Bradford during Bammy’s non-stop stock car racing era.


Things didn’t always go right, like this time at Rochdale.


Jumping forward a few years: celebrating another World Final win (Coventry, September 2002)


John and James line up at Coventry, April 2003.


Displaying the gold roof at Knockhill in June 2003.


Even nights like this have not dampened John’s enthusiasm for the sport!


Still holding on to the Gold roof, Northampton 2004.


John at one of his favourite tracks, Hednesford. He has 11 final wins at the track, including one that those who were there will not forget in 2001, when he pulled off one of the most epic last benders in stock car history!


Win or lose John has a smile on his face – this is a winning smile. King’s Lynn, May 2010, his last final win (to date).


John in action at Coventry, where he has 25 final wins.


The sleek tar car on its debut at Birmingham in April 2013.


John wins at Stoke in September 2015, where the roar of the crowd could be heard above the engine noise! It was John’s 815th race win!


What will 2016 have in store for King John?
