    Photos: The Bruce Wells Collection - Warwick Farm - Part 6

    Time for another update from Bruce Wells. This is just a small one, only 20 photos, from Warwick Farm, in May 1967. It was not long after this Bruce and his wife moved away from New South Wales and he stopped taking motor racing photos, which is a real shame. Would have been exciting to have seen what great moments Bruce could have captured during the 1970s.

    Kicking things off is Bob Jane in his Elfin 400 Repco. Is this the ill-fated car Bevan Gibson was killed in at Bathurst in 1969?

    I beg to differ, I think it is Bob Holden.
    The sideways Volvo is most probably David Seldon.
    The Cooper S in post #9 looks like Lakis Manticas.
    Dale.

    Thanks Dale, re the Mini pictured above, is this the same car raced by Holland, or a completely different car?

    From what I can tell, several people raced this pretty little TVR Grantura in 1967, but I believe this is David Haldane pictured here. In behind appears to be Fred Gibson in the Elan.

    Ken Ward's Morgan, Paul Meyer's Elan, Ross Bond's Healey 3000, Harry Cape and David Scales in the Midget. This photo was used in RCN but cropping Scales out.

    Yes, Haldane and Gibson...

    Gibson must be coming up to lap him... he was beaten home by Cape's Elan seen earlier, a regular road model.

    I don't know who it is, but it's not Weldon.

    Not a 908...

    It had a 6-cylinder motor and is described as a 'Porsche Spyder 6' in the report.
