21st July 1974 - Kaldenkirchen - European Championship Report by 'Southdowner' from Spedeweek no 27

You know the Grand Prix Midgets were not at Ipswich - I think they were down at Honiton but as yet cannot get any gen - but several of them had their own championship racing when they went to Germany to compete in the Grand Prix Midget European Championship and came away with two of the top three places. I remember last year hearing Frank Boyles complain he could win the heats but never the final but this time it was different for it was Frank who took the chequered flag for a great championship win over Germany's Willie Thissen with Keith Fransella third. Mick Bonner had bad luck, going out when well on his way to victory.
