*Well, it's hard to believe that the KID who started out behind the counter at the legendary
  Flanders Company (the leading manufacturer and distributor for Motorcycle Handlebars
  since the 40's), is turning 60!  And Flanders Company is still going strong!  Please read
  what a nice note Doug Stokes from California's Irwindale Speedway has written about
  Bruce Flanders!  Having known Flanders for over 40 years, I take special pride in the fact
  that I conned him into attending and later announcing his first CRA Sprint Car Race at
  ASCOT PARK in Gardena California.  Don't know what happened but Bruce went on to
  announce many more CRA events and even married the Daughter of a CRA Sprint Car
  Racer years later!  If you want to talk about Speedway Bikes, or Motorcycle Flat Track
  Racing or add Enduros, Flanders will hold his own!  He outshines many with his knowledge
  of the over 25 years of Long Beach GP (even some of those who have come and gone on
  the big dollar payroll).  If you want a bit of history on Radio Commercials or Voice Overs 
  Flanders has been at it from writing the script to canning the sound.  Don't forget the
  movies he's been in.....Yep, 60 years gives a man a few days to hone his skills!  Happy
  Birthday Flanders.............enjoy!   (Pattie Prestidge Frost)

*The Stirling Moss Scrapbook 1955: A Unique Insight into Stirling Moss’s Brilliant Break-
  through Year, by Philip Porter.  Porter Press International, PO Box 2, Tenbury Wells, WR15
  8XX, UK  Tel: +44 (0)1584 781588, Fax: +44 (0)1584 781630, www.stirlingmossbooks.com           
  or info@stirlingmossbooks.com.  For Stirling Moss, 1955 was the breakthrough year. After
  showing great promise and patriotically persevering with uncompetitive British cars, he joined
  the all-conquering Mercedes-Benz team to partner with World Champion Juan Fangio.  It
  was to be a brilliant year full of heroic victories and an equally exciting private life.  The Stirling
  Moss Scrapbook 1955, looks at the year in greater detail than any book yet published.  It does
  so through the eyes of Moss himself.  This was the year of his Grand Prix win, brilliant victories
  in the TT, the Targa Florio and his truly extraordinary Mille Miglia win.  This very large format
  book is based on Moss’s own personal scrapbooks, his private diaries and photograph albums.
  It is packed with intriguing detail, superb illustrations and newspaper reports from around the
  world.  Moss was a man of extraordinary energy. He was one of the first of the jet-setters and
  went out with a succession of  ladies. The press loved him and he was rarely out of the papers. 
  It paints a vivid picture of the fun and flavour of '50's motor racing, spiced with Moss' anecdotes
  as told to author Philip Porter.  The Stirling Moss Scrapbook 1955 is the first of a new series of
  books based on every year of his career. It is also the first book in the new ‘Original Scrapbook’
  series.  The Stirling Moss Scrapbook 1961 will be published shortly. (Claire Bryan)

*Dry Lakes and Bonneville racer Leroy Neumayer is in the hospital in very serious condition

  be sent to: Leroy Neumayer, PO BOX 275, Pinedale, WY  82941.   (Glen Barrett)
*A bill (H.B. 2221) to ban vehicles equipped with a “muffler or exhaust system that clearly has
  been modified to amplify or increase the noise of the vehicle” was quickly passed last night by the
  Illinois House on a 61-55 vote and is gaining momentum in the Senate.  Under the bill, vehicles
  determined to have been modified by virtue of a “visual observation” will fail emissions inspection. 
  The Legislature will adjourn for the year on Tuesday, May 31st leaving a short time to complete
  action in the Senate.  The bill is being sponsored in the Senate by James Clayborne Jr at
  clayborne@senatedem.state.il.us  This irresponsible bill is opposed by SEMA. (Jason Tolleson)

*SEMA stalled final action on Illinois legislation (H.B. 2221) that threatened to ban vehicles
  equipped with a “muffler or exhaust system that clearly has been modified to amplify or increase
  the noise of the vehicle.”  The bill had been quickly passed by the House in the final days of the
  legislative session, before being stopped by SEMA in the Senate.  Under the measure, vehicles
  determined to have been modified by virtue of a “visual observation” would have failed emissions
  inspection.   How emissions inspectors would have determined that an exhaust system increases
  noise by virtue of a “visual inspection” was not explained in the bill.  (Jason Tolleson)
