Celebrations in Estonia

A letter from margus H Kuuse, Editior of Estonia’s motor journal Autoleht, informs me that 80 years of motorsport in that country was recently commemorated. Stamps were issued (see inset) to mark the occasion, while Tommas Napa of Tallinn was elected Estonia’s Driver of the Century.

The stamp shows an Estonia Type-269. This firm has built 1300 racing cars, I am told, since 1957.

Racing had taken place, for instance, on the Skeemring circuit, with its five acute corners.

The two manufacturers of kit cars, which are of Lotus 7/Caterham appearance (left), have now merged, Vil/Rex joining with Eastfield in south Estonia, and their sportscar kits are exported to Sweden.
