    Yes Roger - I was wondering whether I might bump into you down there.

    Nigel Watts photo,s -

    Thanks Nigel for all your great photo's.
    Nigel has also gathered [ bought ] a collection of photos by Jack Inwood known as " MR PIX " and has been posting them on the Facebook page " Old New Zealand Motor Racing " - they are great photos from the 1960's some of which have been publlshed on TRS by others as have featured in magazine's and Motorsport Annuals.

    This photo is a favourite of mine ;

    Garth Souness in the Morrari leads Morrie Hogan in the Allardette at Pukekohe.
    Allardette's were a Supercharged Ford Anglia by Sidney Allard, and there are continuation versions being made by his son Allan in the UK currently.

    Unsure which meeting at Pukekohe this was but thinking 1965 as still running the Borrani Wire Wheels and the mudguards have not been flared as they were by early 1966.

    Thanks for the photo's Nigel.. maybe you could put some on a thread in TRS

    The link to the photos, one set of them ;

    Just going back through Nigel's early posts and came across this - I love that Jaguar - never seen a racing one in real life but do have a 1;43 scale model in the livery.

    Thanks again Nigel for all your " inputs " as Ken H would say .

    Happy memories there Nigel, when the annual Festival was the highlight of the year. Great pics as always.

    #1749/2 - Bernie's Broadspeed Replica running away, top right. Has anyone seen that around lately? Fastest car in the ERC group a few years back, at the end of the Pukekohe straight, clocked on Radar. From memory, 130mph.

    Sure is. It reminded me of the 55 FJ I bought for $100 when I arrived in Sydney in 1967 except mine was a pale blue.
