    all the mechanicals put into Red Renny Renault body.
    That was later crashed (not sure where, taupo or baypark ??) and pretty sure it was dumped,
    and then he built the rover.
    Crashed at Baypark heading onto the back straight

    The way I heard it is that it sat under a hedge for a while before the Impwerks guy (Brian Bradshaw?) bought it. I was told he stripped it and dumped the carcass as he felt it was beyond repair. Some years ago he had a Stiletto body on Trademe and was advertising that he could turn it into a replica/rebuild if a client with suitably deep pockets wanted....

    Yes you are right Paul, I reviewed the article and images and that is exactly as per Russ Cunninghams comments as per Roger's comment. The thing for me, as I said back then, I have a familial connection with this car as my uncle was mechanic for Bryan Bate and Nev Brickley. He helped Bryan and Bob Homewood change the power plant

    Just a reminder to all HSSIA and other drivers competing at a National event of new clothing safety rule, all competitors will have been notified by MSNZ email of this last year.-

    HMC/HSC newsletter-
    *As of the 1st April 2018 the clothing standards for racing have been updated.
    Please check this now and make sure that all your clothing is compliant with the new regulations. All our races come under National Race...not club.
    Of special note is the regulation on race suits and undergarments which are now compulsory. Socks must be mid-calf, and undergarments full sleeve and long legs. No tee shirts or shorts.
    Our last race meeting of the season is on the 7th April and the new regulations will be in force so please make sure that you have this sorted as you can believe it will be checked by the scrutineers*

    So scants ,briefs,thongs, budgie smugglers will now NOT be acceptable as underwear, or the only thing you can wear under a one piece race suit.

    Under a one piece race suit must be long-johns, and upper torso must be waist to neck, wrist to wrist--.
    Effectively 2 layers now.
    No synthetics allowed, check for materials detail in MSNZ rule book-

    https://www.motorsport.org.nz/sites/...0Sch%20A_0.pdf

    So do not roll up to Taupo without these as the scrutineers will be wanting to see them.

    I am so glad it is not the group coodinators Responsibility and Liability to do a personal check on each driver to make sure they comply..........

    Hi John and others,

    Please be aware that MSNZ issued Manual Amendment 35105 on 25 Jan 2018 stating that "Garments (underwear) manufactured to this standard in a ‘short sleeved and/or ‘short pant’’ version can be accepted" - this is applicable for all levels of competition in New Zealand EXCEPT FOR Premier Championship Races and Championship Rallies.

    The manual amendment can be viewed here:
    http://www.motorsport.org.nz/sites/d... Amendment.pdf

    Chicane Racewear sell both long and short versions here:
    http://www.chicane.co.nz/products.asp?CategoryID=4

    In case this suggests that I'm directing competitors towards Chicane, Harris Race Radios sell compliant underwear too (it complies with the top level requirements but costs a bit more than the Chicane products):
    http://www.freemracewear.co.nz/nomex-fireproof-set.html

    Remember that you still need to buy the clothing that complies - this amendment does not make your brand new 100% cotton tee shirt and boxers acceptable.

    Cheers,
    Alan Hyndman.

    Item 1-
    Underwear-
    Garments
    designed to be
    worn between the
    overall and
    wearer’s body
    entirely covering
    the wearer except
    for head, hands and feet

    Am I blind as I see nothing here that Alan says about short clothing.
    Please attach quote , NOT where to find it

    (4) SFI 3.2A/1˂ means SFI Quality Assurance Specifications 3.2A/1 and 3.2@A/3. The SFI 3.2A Spec label will be found on the left arm or the collar

    (5) All cotton garments must have a manufacturer label stating 100% Cotton (No ‘Spandex or Synthetics).

    (6) Garments manufactured to this standard in a ‘short sleeved and/or ‘short pant’’ version can be accepted.


    From the amendment quoted John.

    As a former 50% owner of Chicane for ten years (2000 - 2010), please note that buying from a reputable dealer is crucial. There have been several instances of counterfeit suits being sold, which has had major negative repercussions for genuine FIA approved NZ and Australian manufacturers. When your own label is copied by some underhand individuals, not manufactured to the same high quality standards, lives are put at risk.

    Getting FIA approval is a very protracted and expensive process and for a company the size of Chicane, which on a world scale is very small, there are no economies of scale in manufacturing. If you see this as a plug for Chicane, fine, but with over 30 years in the NZ clothing trade, I'm passionate about local manufacturing whenever possible.

    As an aside, race suits are NOT fireproof. They are fire resistant only - and for a limited amount of time.

    Ray and Alan Hyndman ....thank you for this ,
    and it will be quoted to the scrutineers and hopefully the CAN be accepted will become WILL be accepted.
    All I want is no surprises for my drivers on the day.

    So I saw a little video clip tonight, of a Charger being fired up today for the first time in a while after a bit of work. Looking forward to seeing it back on the track soon.

    Great Grid John. Good to see Angus in the Alfetta. He will need to brush up on his Italian so he can communicate with the Italian part of it....

    Whoops, missed that John! Sorry, no I won't be there. No doubt Nigel will do the honours. Well done for another good field.
