    I was driving the blue Buckler MK5 at that event and had a great time driving at a place I went to as a kid and one of the highlights was being on the dummy grid along side Stirling Moss.It was the kind of event that you had to pinch ones self to make sure it was for real. Thanks for posting these photos

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
    A gentleman in Rotorua did work on Phil's car (GT40) amongst other toy's. Won't say more until clarify with him and he agrees.
    This was a great meeting with amazing cars and motorsport people, a few of who have left for the big track in the sky.

    Ardmore Reunion 1989

    This is the last batch I will put up of these. Seemed a shame that they were sitting around having never been seen before. Hope they were of interest to some of you - they certainly bought back some great memories to me.

    Great pictures! I've finally seen a picture of my car on here, albeit hiding behind an E-Type...

    Is there a site that allows you to monetise your shots? If there is and you have a decent shot of my Lotus, I'd be keen on ordering some prints.

    Send me a PM with your email address Paul and I will have a look at what I took over that period, and send you what I can find. I tended to concentrate more on "classic" racing in the late 80's.

    Nigel,
    This photo is not up to your standards but it does bring back memories of Len Southwood driving the Stutz with Prime Minister Robert Muldoon aboard at Pukekohe before the start of the 1976 NZGP.

    I do have an entry list that I could scan.

    I was flagging for both days and sad to say, on a flag post that was on a straight and due to a different senior marshal, we were stuck on the one point all weekend, with no stand down time to wander. What should have been a photographic feast for me, was anything but, as we were too far from the track edge or a corner to get any decent pics. The one time in my life I actually regretted being a motorsport volunteer...

    Our normal system was two flagging, one observing, two incident crew. If we had 7 or more, we took it in turns to stand down which at least gave us a bit of time to wander. These days, the poor marshals are out just about every weekend and they are often struggling to get two per post...

    What happened to the Tuatara seen in post #13?

    ERC, thanks, Appreciate your comments about being a Flaggie . aka - a Marshall, it should be so the guys that do the work which gets the drivers on and off the track, get some recognition.
    I did a bit in the 60's - easier then, in some ways, but not so safe, stood in the huge concrete circle just before the elbow at Pukekohe long since gone, a bit scary but so close to the action. good memories.
