    My Brut bucket hat from the 1970's still fits as does my NSCC (UK) tie of the same vintage...

    working on the car are Graham Donaldson and Kerry Agapiou and Julian Randles with Sid Taylor on the other side.
    If you look closely at Graham Donaldson at the lower left adjusting the right front wing, you will see the top of a head and a left fore arm under his nose. That would be me ! September 1975.

    On another thread I looked up some information about Jody Scheckter and that reminded me of how this thread started with the 1973 British Grand Prix where I had been sent by my boss at Trojan Racing to deliver some Hewland components to Sid Taylor for his Trojan F 5000 T101 that Jody was driving in the 1973 US F5000 Championship.
    At Silverstone, Scheckter was the exciting new driver for the McLaren Team in his M23/03 # 30. I arrived on practice day and all was well and the next day he triggered a massive crash and was a villain that every other team manager wanted to "scalp"! I got to stand above the pit area and took some photos that I wanted to show again as my thoughts go out to Jody and his family at the recent loss of his 21 year old daughter due to various sad issues.

    The Trojan T101 / 103 was the car I took the Hewland parts for to Silverstone as the car was being driven then in the US.
    The first time it came out was at Brand Hatch in March 1973 and Jody did not push it too hard as he had McLaren commitments for the Race of Champions that weekend.
    This photo shows my boss Robert Redford in the dark suit walking alongside the super mechanic, Ron Bennett, for Sid Taylor in the Brands Hatch paddock area and the Trojan T101 / 103 at it's debut March 1973.

    With Jody Scheckter driving this Trojan went on to be very successful in the 1973 US F 5000 season winning 3 of the first 4 races and coming 2nd in the other. We were all excited for the future at Trojan Racing but the 73 season was to be the last winning season and as I already noted they did not achieve any success after I left !

    In Old racing cars.com it shows that this Trojan T 101 has had quite a history of being cut up and altered although in recent "For Sale" ads
    it looks remarkably good.
    From Oldracingcars.com;
    " Trojan T101
    103.

    Built for 1973 season. Jerry Entin and Sid Taylor for Jody Scheckter UK 1973 (two races) and US 1973 (three wins and one second in the first four races; crashed in practice at Watkins Glen and repaired at Trojan works; thereafter used at R6 Elkhart Lake and R9 Seattle; also for Sam Posey in the heat at R7 Road Atlanta and Steve Durst at R8 Pocono. Scheckter bought a Lola T330 with his winnings after Elkhart Lake allowing him to add a win and a third and to win the series. The Trojan was returned to UK with Syd Taylor and advertised through to August 1974.

    The next part of this car's life is something of a puzzle. It is next seen with Jon Bradburn in 1981 when it would have been the spare monocoque he advertised with 102 and it would appear therefore that it had traveled with its sister car 102 via Damien Magee and Jim Kelly. With F5000 having finished and having even fallen out of fashion for sprints and hillclimbs, Bradburn was unable sell the car and it was eventually stripped and sold to Anthony Taylor. Taylor continued to part out the car and even removed the bulkheads in order to build a special. Simon Hadfield recalls seeing it about 1990/92 when it was just a cut about monocoque but still had Scheckter's Winston Tires livery on the remaining skins. It was finally sold to Othmar von Diemar (Cologne, Germany) about 1997 and slowly restored by Peter Denty. It was initially raced c2001 in dark blue livery but was put into Jody Scheckter colours over the winter for the 2002 season. Sold in late 2010 via James Hanson of Speedmaster to Mike Sidgwick (Lancashire, UK). Raced in white Winston livery at Oulton Park June 2011. Raced by Sidgwick in HSCC events in 2014, 2015 and 2016. Also raced by Sidgwick in F5000 Tasman Revival races in early 2017.

    Driven by: Jody Scheckter, Sam Posey and Steve Durst. First race: Brands Hatch (UK R1), 17 Mar 1973. Total of 10 recorded races. "

    Recently for sale.

    When I first started at Trojan I snapped some photos not realizing then that they would be used as in this "Primotipo" article.
    It was hard to believe that 10 years earlier in 1963 I was a complete little nerd who had had a knee operation, appendix removed and just lost my father and a wall flower at all the school dances etc. etc.. Now in 1973, I had met the beautiful Californian woman who was to become my wife, traveled around the globe and had a job where I could watch and meet race drivers I had only read about before. All my school books were filled with motor racing art and now I was living a dream.I was very blessed then and I still am. (Still the little nerd !)

    An interesting read here;

    it is a lonely life over here but I get my second Covid shot next week so perhaps my leash will be lengthened a little.
    You haven't got rid of me yet !
    At the moment I just sit out in the garage with the Mini and we watch old race movies and the Daytona 500 today together.
    When things get really rough I can take it out on the punching bag !

    Speaking of driving skills or the lack of !

    Thanks to Nigel Watts kindly sending me photos of Kiwitahi and surrounds, I can share where I first drove even though the scenery was a bit greener then than at present.
    Our home was on the other side of the brown, round Maori fortress hill, in the centre, our farm boundary line went over it.
    Also our quarry hill used to be off to the right but is now a large hole in the landscape.

    I would wend/ speed my way towards the Kiwitahi School and either turn toward Morrinsville and pass the Kiwitahi Hall, a place where I was ignored or spurned many times at the local dances and events and had to travel far away before I could find someone who could laugh at my pathetic humour and put up with my presence.

    Or I would turn off in the other direction and drive through the Scotsman Valley and thick Waikato fogs as I commuted each day to Te Rapa to work for Herbie Dyke at Fairview Motors in my Mk 1 Escort during 1971.
    (That commute prepared me for some of the commuting I have done over here.)

    (Thanks Nigel for the photos as they revived many memories.)
