    A previous quote from Oldfart;
    "Thanks for that comment Roger! That was not much more than a box Brownie, some russian version of a reflex thing. I was still in short pants "

    Rhys, you were not the only one in short pants back then !

    John was guest speaker at one of the few annual dinners of the NSCC (Nottingham Sports Car Club) I attended, back in about 1970/71/72. An excellent speaker he was too. I think I posted a pic of his Healey on my picture thread ages ago.

    Finally have a copy of the results of the 1983 event, the only year I raced in my Healey 100/4..
    I may have actually typed them up,so long ago !! as we sent them to all competing clubs after the event
    These were sent to me by Stuart Short, whose Dad Jim Short got FTD that day.. Jim advised was the second running of the event .. other years including 1982, and 1984 - 1990 I was involved as a Marshall, when most of my photos were taken or in the last 3 or so years Organiser [ arrange the permit with Franklin County, while Reg Whittaker would speak with the locals on Maioro Rod,being the local School Teacher, and living in the next road Bothwell Park Rd, he knew them all, Reg also arranged for the " Long Drop " toilet that features in some photos.
