    I will bump this to the next page so Bruce's post above makes more sense.

    The entries to The TACCOC Christmas at the Downs 9th December are out.

    [url]www.motorsportentry.com

    Already we have interest from more HMC drivers for this event, Dale in the 69 Boss, Glenn, and let’s hope he will bring out the Ex Roger Williams 69 Z/28 and Pat with his HSC Anglia for a start.

    Let’s get the entries in.

    Be good to have a respectable grid to support our friends at TACCOC.

    See you there

    The ex -Westall car is a welcome sight back on the track. Mike Westall really made this car fly when he raced it in the early 90s. Always a regular runner in the Classic field where we had all sorts such as Pine Pack Mustang, Camaro, Les Parkinsons XJS V12-currently run by Foggy,definitely great fields then. Neat these cars have survived and are still racing for our enjoyment.

    If anyone with a suitable pre 78 Saloon with a current COD or the car has not been modified outside of its COD is interested in joining our group at Taupo please contact me to discuss.
    This is an invite only meeting and you will need to register with us prior to racing.
    This only to HSC suitable Saloons on our Eligibility List.

    Cheers
    Bruce

    I fully support this very first HSC class and as such have entered the Team Cambridge Monaro in it.
    The Monaro is looking forward to be running against its old mates such as Jack Nazer Escort, Red Dawson Mustang and any other cars from 1969- 1975 season.
    I also raced against the Fleetwood Mustang in the Rod Coppins Trophy event BayPark 1993, would enjoy doing it again.
    Its Bucket List time every race meeting.

    These two photos were taken at Baypark in October 1968 and were one of the first occasions the twin cam Ford Escorts raced in NZ. Does anyone have a program from this meet or be able to identify who was driving each of these cars. Excuse the quality.

    The only Bay Park event in October 1968 that I have been able to find is a minor Tauranga Car Club meeting held on October 5. I don't have a programme nor did Motorman have a report.

    The next meeting at Bay Park was a Gold Star event on November 17 at which there were a number of Escort Twin Cams competing including one numbered 45 and driven by R. Uden from Tokoroa.

    The other Escort TCs were in the hands of Tony Batchelor (23), Jack Nazer (63), Dave Simpson (100), Jim Carney (102) and Jim Kennedy (6).

    Thank you very much for the info Milan. You are a champion.

    I was wrong about there not being a Motorman report on the October 5 1968 Bay Park meeting. I missed it because it wasn't listed on the contents page.

    So car 45 was Dave Simpson's car and 37 must have been Jack Nazer.

    Great article Milan. Dave Simpson is attending Taupo GP as our guest along with Kerry Grant for signings and meeting the public.
    Thrilled to have them attend.

    We will have other visitors as well and will release the details as they are confirmed.
