Whilst Potters Pass at first glance appears to be of a very minor nature in terms of its statistics, it is the rich history which makes this little pass worthy of being our featured pass this week. As they say "But wait, there's more!"
Your editor just so happens to have attended Selborne College in East London in the years 1963 to 1968. One of my class mates was a talented kid on the race track - only 15 years old at the time. His name - Jody Scheckter. One Friday night, Jody 'borrowed' his father's Alfa Guilietta and took a few of his pals (including myself) for a hair-raising spin around the Grand Prix track via Potters Pass.
Most of the time we were on two wheels and I recall being mildly terrified as the young Scheckter showed us just what a capable driver he was. It was a sobering experience in both senses of the word. Little did we know at the tme, he would become a world class driver.
So take the click-link below and take a drive with us down memory-lane via Potters Pass and a one lap spin around the track. Never a dull moment at MPSA!
