About Colin C. Rawlinson

Colin Rawlinson was taken on a family outing to his first motor-race meeting at Castle Combe in 1954, when the popularity of the 500cc car racing was at its height. Some thirty years later he acquired his own 500, the unique Smith-Buckler, which, although a one-off, was professionally constructed to the order of the late Ken Smith of Enfield. Colin has subsequently hill-climbed the Smith-Buckler with 'little success but much enjoyment'. He is a director and treasurer of the 500 Owners Association.
