Reg Spreckley

Reg Spreckley

Reg came from Lincolnshire and raced for a full nine years, rarely troubling the engraver, party due to consistently running JAP engines and out of date Coopers. He also restricted himself to the North and East of the country with only one appearance at Brands. Reg's moment of glory came at Cadwell Park opening meeting in September 1953 where he won the first race.
