Memories of Mike Remnant by Tony Wood.

“One of my memories of Mike was at one of the Tregrehan hillclimbs in the late 1970′, Mike was driving his supercharged Ralt.  Roger Jordan had set off up the hill followed by Mike, at the top of the avenue near paddock bend the car got away from Mike and he went into one of the trees on the left with an almighty crash.  As clerk of the course I was at the scene very quickly only to find Mike unconscious and slumped in the car, marshals and St Johns Ambulance arrived (we didn’t have a rescue unit in those days) along with the doctor.  Roger Jordan suddenly appeared, he had ran down from the top of the hill and as Mike came round Roger said to him ‘I suppose your chasing squirrels again Remnant’ (Mike had had a squirrel run across the track during a previous run).  That’s how TDMC came to have the Squirrel Cup, which we still award to one of the FTD’s at our Portreath Sprint.  Mike was a great supported of TDMC.  He and Andy Fraser had a ‘Tregrehan Champ’ T shirt which used to change hands when one of them beat the other to claim FTD or break the track record.

In those days we often took a mini bus to the British Grand Prix  and Mike always shared the driving with me, the drives were normally eventful and all roundabout had to driven round at least twice just to wake everyone one up on the overnight journey.”
