    My man on the spot is coming to see me on Monday, will give you more then.
    Great place for it though., done a dog agility competition there that services all the East Coast.
    Handy to everyone,and most suitable for Classic Saloons
    And we are not talking Friday night after closing time.
    Remember how much fun these are ?

    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.

    A Morgan in the pits [ 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
    Have found a set of photos from the early 2000's at Whenuapai, so thought here as good a place to post.
    the first few to follow ;

    Roger. Here's the entry list for the 1994 Telecom Classic Motorfest. Good luck with identifying your photos from the list as it's not in numerical order and car numbers are repeated for different classes.

    Yes, I see our Cooper S has grown to 1500cc.......interesting......big bore/long stroke. Actually it was a 1330cc...ie 60 thou overbore. Some poor person has been tasked with typing all that info out, and frankly has gone cross-eyed doing it......He/she is forgiven.

    Not the cricketer. I'm reliably informed that Bruce the MG driver now resides in Melbourne.

    Loads of errors, frankly so many that who gives a monkeys?

  16. #36
    These are not errors in the mind of the entrant. In the event that one is not exactly sure of, or cannot prove the capacity of
    an engine, the fair and honest approach is to enter a figure which brings it only just within the nearest capacity classification for the event involved. This is an honest approach which should be commended rather than criticised. Obviously recording a figure in excess of the actual, guards against any possible protest. So WTF LOL

    In this case I would be interested to know if ANY are correct! MGTF with 4770 and a 1000cc Mustang for examples.
    Not a bad concept you have given Trevor, as long as they were never a background for handicappers to consider.

    As a keen student/collector of race programmes for reference, to make classifying photographs easier, I hate it when there are errors and it reflects badly on race organisers.

    Maybe not a major issue in a clubby event, but when you are paying for a professionally printed programme, then it should have been properly checked at the proof stage.

    Mind you, since we moved to on line entry systems, where drivers are responsible for inputting their own information, there are indeed several drivers who can't even get their own information correct - or never bother to check!

    Telecom Classic MOTORFEST

    The event was run for several years by Hamilton Car Club with much support, Laurie Brenssell was a prime mover.
    Laurie has recently published some of his own photos of the events and the programme covers.
    I only kept my Phonecard Ticket, which still has the $5.00 on it - the cost was $20.00

    The programmes ; thanks to Laurie
