Team Norton Greyhounds
Base Stourbridge, West Midlands
First Season circa 1985
Norton Greyhounds were originally made up from members of the Norton 15th Stourbridge scout troop racing in both scout car and the pre championship BFPCR events.
First came The ‘Eliminator ‘ and then The ‘Afterburner‘, both cars named after rock band ZZ Tops albums from the same era. The cars were both designed and built by team manager Dave Depper . Both cars are Reynolds 531 space frame chassis with two wheel drive and right hand lever steering.
In the late ‘80s Norton Greyhounds were the team to beat winning the championship races four years running from 1987 to 1990 and many other race wins besides.
The ‘Afterburner’ went through a total rebuild during the 2012/13 winter mainly to accommodate the new narrower 20’’ wheels to try and make it more competitive by new team manager Gary Oakley.
The start of a new era began for Norton Greyhounds racing in the first round, of the 2013 championship, lining up against its old stable mate The ’Eliminator’ now in the hands of Team 105. Only three races entered but a very credible 10th place championship finish.
