    Ray I have never heard of Pat Peck being Patricia, she was always just Pat.

    It wasn't Hamilton in the Porsche, it was Bill Brown

    I found this short clip of the June 1970 meeting at Oran Park that was mentioned earlier in this thread.
    Your identification skills are required.
    That corner onto the front straight was a great place to watch the 3 wheeled cornering.

    Just back from the Long Weekend and catching up.

    Firstly the meeting was not on 26 June but 28 June. 26 June was a Friday.

    In opening scenes it is Lakis Manticas in # 10 Mini chasing Chris Brauer in the red ex Bob Jane Mustang.

    The Porsches are #8 Brian Foley, #3 Jim McKeown, and #4 Bill Brown in the orangey red Scuderia Veloce car.

    #79 is Ross Bond in the ex Peter Brock Austin A30 Holden

    Pat Peck is in the Camaro

    Hi Ken Just found this thread 7 years later!!!!! whilst doing some research. You are correct-one of the two BT23s was owned by Bobby Rahal though I think it may have since changed hands. It is a rather long story. Baron Robertson bought the BT23 off Roly but The Baron had trouble getting to grips with the car and he asked Roly to drive it at Baypark and offer some advice. Roly crashed it at the Sweeper and damaged it badly. Baron imported a brand new chassis from the UK and transferred the FVC and other salvageable parts to the new chassis. The damaged car was rebuilt as a Formula Ford and driven by Phil Harris. It passed through a few hands in NZ before being acquired by Martyn Smith in the UK who restored it to it's original specs. Meantime Phil Harris had moved to the US as a mechanic firstly with Pat Burke Racing and then VDS. He became friends with Bobby Rahal who turned up at Phil's shop one day with his latest acquisition. Turns out it was Phil's old Formula Ford! Whatever happened to the other BT23 that Baron raced is a big mystery.

    Anyway I took some photos that are not great quality but I wanted to share of that time...

    Not every town had a trailer with a Camaro on it sitting in the street ! ( Morrinsville 1969 )
    note the high quality of trailer with such a precious load !

    Just rediscovered this thread and have come across a couple of " Baypark " images from the first [ and postponed meeting ].
    Originally scheduled for November 1967, it happened a couple of weeks later in December.

    Norm Beechy's Chevy Nova in the paddock area.
    I think that is Australian Brian Foley's 1293 Mini Cooper next to it.
    (Could that be verified please. I know it was out here for the NZGP meet at Pukekohe a week later. )

    (Ken Hyndman )
    The Brian Foley Mini at Pukekohe with a different Race Number but the stripe seem correct, not sure about the sponsors.
