    Ardmore Reunion 1989

    I have been going through a pile of negatives taken at the Ardmore Reunion that I had never got round to processing before so thought people may be interested in having a look at some of them.

    Brilliant - I remember it well. I was one of the commentators with Bill Mudgeway...the last weekend of January 1989!

    Great photos,cannot believe it was 1989.raced two cars that day ,a Lotus Elan Sprint in Gold Leaf colours and my little red and black Mini Cooper 998cc.As i remember it was very hot,looking at those photos did not realise at the time that their was such a large crowd.Previously i had found a second hand copy of Stirling Moss's book in the track of speed,it had a signature [and still has] from him on a piece of cigarette paper,evidently obtained when he raced at Ardmore originally,got him to sign the book again,so one before his Goodwood shunt and one after,they were both the same,even though he had suffered such bad injuries that aspect was not affected.Also still have unused a window sticker advertiseing the event. [sad]
    Keep those photos coming Ross.

    Yep chassis #, actually car had been re-chassied earlier after a major prang. I think that pic would be the guy ( name escapes me at mo ) who bought it off Phil Rudd ( Drummer AC/DC ) and carried on down thru NZ to compete in the SI classic meets before shipping the car back to his home base, I saw the car @ Dunedin Street race, should be some pics somewhere IIRC. Same car was featured in a NZ racing? magazine. Phil Rudd apparently took it to an earlier Ardmore or similar AK based classic meet as a spectator and overheard the guys on the gate say, oh just another bloody replica or words to that effect....if only they knew

    Yes, Ted Rollason. After he bought the car from Rudd he brought it to a HRSCC meeting at Taupo and at the conclusion of the racing very generously gave everyone who wanted a ride a lap or two of the circuit.

    Here's a bit of photographic indulgence. Very nice restoration of a truly historic car.
