Kick Start

UNCLE PETER PURVES and his brainbox mate JACK STITES narrate junior motorcross time trial competitons on the muddiest courses in the land, replete with bunny hops, ramps, see-saws and the requisite pile of old cars and oil drums as obstacles. Utterly inappropriate but still ace theme tune played on fairground organ. Primetime exposure for St. John’s Ambulancemen, if nothing else.

    The Lampkin brothers featured a lot in the later series of Junior Kick start.

    The adult competition often featured the Belgern LaGerne (sp?) brother, one of whom managed to fall of the roof of a Transit van IIRC.

    Best bit ever. Purves laughs as 2nd St Johns ambulanceman falls then hypocritically pronounces ‘one shouldn’t laugh’
