Southern 100 president's legacy preserved in new book

His words - not ours . .

The legacy of former Southern 100 Racing president Derek Nicholson is being remembered in a new book.

The former commissioner and policeman died last year following a short battle with illness, but is still fondly remembered by those who knew him.

He gained a reputation for his speeches at the club's annual dinner with a number of amusing jokes.

Daughter Vanda has now compiled his best gags in a new book.

The Southern 100 Joke Book - In memory of Derek Nicholson - His Words... Not Ours is available at the club's merchandise shop during this year's races.

All proceeds will be used to support the Southern 100.
