    Steve Sharp is the husband of Denise Ganley who is proudly keeping the Ganley family name alive. Steve runs both a Lotus 7 and the Tiga (another Ganley car as is the Lotus)

    Rhys, thanks I knew there was a connection,and it is great to have a family continue where Grandfather, Uncle [ Howden ] Father Dennis and mother Phil have been. I had forgotten that the lady in this photo is Denise's Mum Phil at the 1983 Jaguar Drivers, Le Mans Relay Race. Phil is the one leaning against the front of Tay Urlwin's 100

    Another generation too, as Olivia their daughter is a "must watch" already, but the future looks good too in my opinion.

    I found these photos from a 1961 "Gisborne Photo News "

    This little "Satellite Special" was the quickest car at this June 1961, Gisborne club event.
    Does anyone have any knowledge to share about this vehicle ?

    This is the same car with a different driver (father ? ) and with different wheels, also in 1961.

    Satellite is back running again. Norm Holloway had it for a while. I believe it had an Ariel Square 4 when first built (may be totally wrong on that).

    It rates a mention in Vercoe's book.

    John Ward out for a drive up the hill. I don't see an antenna so perhaps the radio is not playing. It sure has plenty of rear view mirror equipment and does it really have white-wall tires ?

    Cool pix.

    Great stuff Ken, that John Stewart Ford Special is very Healey-esq in the side styling.
    The " Singford " have read that name before - were there more than one ??.

    Keep-em coming Mate

    That looks like a side-mounted antenna just behind the front wheel, so perhaps the radio was playing.

    Milan, you could indeed be correct. (In 1961 how many choices of stations would he have in the hills around Gisborne ?)

    Here are some more 1961 hill-climb photos.

    John Ward enjoyed himself there.
    Even with white-walls and the antenna up in 1962. The triple carbs helped !

    Apparently 1963 did not go quite so well but a good cigarette will help smooth things down !
