Stock car racing in the 70's/80's

Hi, does anyone remember the music they used to play to start off the races, it used to speed up as the cars were released on the first lap. This is a childhood memory from family holidays and been bugging me for weeks!

I don't know the music but I wouldn't be surprised if they still use it!

Try contacting the track http://www.yarmouthstadium.co.uk/motorracing/

No music - but here's a trip down memory lane.

Pretty sure it was "March of the Mods" by the Joe Loss orchestra.
