Steve Holmes has been racing since 1965, starting out in front engine specials, then moving to class 4. One of Steve’s early iconic Stilettos is pictured here. Steve won the Men’s Nationals in 1976 and 1990. He classes his best race in the 1990 Men’s Nationals at Withington when he almost won the Champion of Champions, but lost to John Greenwood in Class 8. Steve hung up his race overalls in 1996 and has been Cwmdu Club Chairman since 2001.
Steve says that having been both Club Chair and West Midland League Chair over the years to be Club Chair of the 2017 Mens and Ladies and Juniors Nationals will be his swan song. Last summer Cwmdu hosted Round 2 of the UKAC and Steve is sure he will have achieved everything he aspired to in the sport by the end of the year.
