    Laurence Brownlie RIP

    I am very sorry to report the passing of 'LRAB' - I believe Laurence was born in October 1943 and if that is correct, he would be 75.

    He was as talented as an artist as he was a racer.

    The 'red car' was built in the garage of GM's parents - I believe that...

    As I recall the story, it ended up with an Alfa Romeo engine. It was spotted on a site described as something like 'Alfa Romeo Special' purely by chance by an observant Kiwi

    This chassis was built when the GM discovered he'd made the...

    Not that car.

    GM built three NF cars but only two ever raced - this is the first one that was built for the 68/69 season. For ease of reference, I call this the red car. Vercoe's book refers to it...

    However, with eight FFs coming from Europe,...

    RIP Ron Grable

    After a long illness, the man that won the first race in NZ featuring Formula A cars, has passed away.

    Good driver who always seemed to go well at Bay Park, and I'm told, a very nice man.
