The 2006 Gala event marked 30 years since the club's establishment on the current Viables site. (Not to be confused with the 25th anniversary of the opening of the current track in 2005!) To mark the event, the Mayor of Basingstoke visited us again, but this year came equipped with his own boiler suit! He is seen here driving #7801 'Anthony Manor' on the approach into the station, whilst under the watchful eye of club chairman, Neil Davis.
