Were you a Vespa rider?

In 1966 the East Midlands Scooter Association was founded with nine clubs making up its initial membership.

The clubs within EMSA initially included the Burton Brewers SC, Grantham SC, Leicester Reynards SC, Mid-Derbyshire SC, Sutton Snipes SC, Derby SC, Mansfield Vespa Club, Mansfield Deerstalkers SC and Nottingham Outlaws SC.

The logo was designed by Pete Olley who I’m keen to track down and I’m also keen to track down anyone with any memories of EMSA events and if there are any surviving EMSA newsletters or write ups on EMSA events out there I’d like to see some.

I’m looking to start an EMSA website so any photos of old EMSA events, race meetings or memorabilia would be appreciated if you’re happy to scan them or let me see them. Looking forward to hearing from anyone who can help me.

I can be contacted either by e-mail scootermemories@Hotmail.com or by post: Pete Davies, 95 Grove Road, Blaby, Leicester, LE8 4DH
