    I would like to give a belated thank you to the Hamilton Car Club and also to Laurie for making this event so much fun to be at...especially the night race.
    Unforgetable seeing Rick Cooper -1965 Mustang between Farmer and Williams Porsches all disc brakes glowing brightly in the dark.

    Telecom Classic MOTORFEST 1994

    Previously posted the Ticket [ Telecom Phone Card ] and the 1993 Programme.
    Recently came across a post by " ** Elvis Jagger Abdul Jabbar ! " with these. I had posted some of my photos from the 1994 event and " ** Elvis " commented and added these items !!
    ** " Elvis " is TRS's Remi .. mystery solved and has now added the Race Entries for each class plus an article from April 1994 NZ Classic Car - which I would have had !!.

    Programme Cover.
    Competitors Tickets and other passes.
    The Entry List Summary - a list of all cars, classes and drivers, some drivers entering more than one race or class.

    List of Entrants - split in half as script too small as one picture.
    The Top Half followed by The lower Half - a small overlap so no one got missed;

    Some errors in there - the Alfa Spyder a 1935 model - think that is 1953, and John Boyd's Sunbeam Rapier at 1275cc, should be 1500 [ 1498 ] or 1725 .. Sure there are others - !!

    No post is complete without a Healey - so here is a repost.

    Telecom Motorfest 1994 Frankton, Hamilton ; More information

    This is a collection of photos from the 1994 event ;.

    Attachment 30160

    This is a phone card issued at the time, has the same images as the program, which I have lost.
    the card has never been used but understand they do expire.

    Attachment 30161
    A Morgan in the pits - with my Grandson Jason " Admaia " Peita - who is now nearly 35 standing beside it
    [ Photo has been posted elsewhere. ]
    Steve is going to shift other photos.

    If anyone has the program, results, newspaper articles or photos please add to the thread
    After receiving the Programme Cover, firstly from Ken h - post #2, and more recently from " Elvis " I now have the detailed list of entrants and realise some of my notes are incorrect - e.g. The Sunbeam Rapier - is not my old mate Owen Faussett. Will go through when I get a moment and correct the details.
    Refer to post #48 above for the list.

    Thanks to Ken H, John Mck, " Elvis " and Organiser Laurie Brenssell for more information.

    Cheers

    Roger

    Beware Roger, the programme has so many errors in it, it isn't funny. Lines have been transposed.

    I don't think Bruce Edgar's MG TF would have had an engine capacity of 4770cc nor Carl Hansens TR7 V8, 1275cc, Bernie Hines Minisprint, 5700cc...

    The entry lists for each race may be more accurate.

    Often, the checking pre-print for some race programmes leaves a lot to be desired. Having scanned over 1,000 pages of old race programmes over the last couple of months, even in the days of typeset programmes before the advent of photocopied and later, computer info, there were errors. Some because no doubt the entrant's writing wasn't the best and at other times, secretarial duties by typists who had very little knowledge of cars or drivers.

    Even though HRC use the competitors' own info, that they input into the system themselves, there are occasional errors! Drivers rarely update the info held in the system, even though they are supposed to, when they enter each event.

    Absolutely, I am number 6 in the program above and they have given my Mustangs engine size as 3046cc.
    And Harley Noragers MGBV8 is conservative 1800cc.
    For me the most important part is who was there and what were they driving

    Entries and Errors .. the comments

    ERC " Some because no doubt the entrant's writing wasn't the best and at other times, secretarial duties by typists who had very little knowledge of cars or drivers. "

    John Mck " For me the most important part is who was there and what were they driving "

    Agree Guys - but it is at least some detail - would like the actual race entries if anyone has the time to scan and post them here !!

    Entries and Errors .. the comments another Note !

    Just looking through the entries and see Donn White, from Tauranga in his Mini Clubman which was a rather Special one - built for Competition by BMC Australia back in 1973. Donn got the car brand new in 1973
    Donn sold the car - must check when, but know he bought it back around 1990 had it restored and still has it.
    Didn't get a photo at the " Telecom " but did take these in Tauranga at a Greerton Fayre in March 2019.
