I joined this site due to my lengthy interest in motor-racing, sparked by my employment by Bruce Watt in Palmerston North in 1959. Bruce was a well-known local identity who also raced a Minor 1000. He sold this shortly after I started wok at his shop and replaced it with a Farina A40, which (once modified for racing) was a joy to drive, something I did almost daily. He was also the Manawatu Car Club handicapper for quite a few years.
Another motorsport identity I met through my work was the late A.G. 'Fordy' Farland, who raced a 100E Prefect with an Elva OHV head.
I will shortly start posting some of my motorsport photos from the early 60s.
