    Pukekohe 1965 - the first appearance of the " Fastback " Anglia's

    Much has been written about the Paul Fahey and Dave Simpson Fastback Anglia's which both debuted at the same meeting and had been created [ supposedly ] without one group knowing what the other was doing.

    A Peter Levet photo of just after the start of one of the races at the December 1965 meeting.
    This was the second meeting in the National Championship series - the first being Renwick.

    The Humber Jaguar #191, Frank Radisich, Lotus Anglia #104, Paul Fahey and part of the Dave Simpson Anglia #177.
    Thanks to Milan Fistonic for the photo and the archive details - entry lists and results.

    Dave Simpson, Lotus Anglia #177 and Garth Souness, Morrari #172 through the Esses at Pukekohe is this the same meeting ? Yes it is as noted below;
    I initially thought Large crowd so maybe the NZ GP meeting in January 1966, seem to remember at the GP meetings that carpark area near the hairpin would have been totally full - so is the December and the Race Number matches #177 for Dave Simpson.

    They really messed up in that programme. As you say, they had Dave Simpson driving a Lotus Cortina in the Open Saloon Car Scratch Race but then in the Saloon Car Handicap Race he was listed as driving an Anglia Cortina.

    He was definitely in the Lotus Anglia Fastback in the first race when he finished fifth after the car tossed a rod coming over Rothmans on the last lap. He obviously didn't start in the handicap race.

    Your photo from the December 1965 meeting is probably from the first lap of Race 10 as the order of the cars is as shown in the Motorman report; Simpson, Souness, Fahey, Nazer, Radisich and Kerry Grant's A40.

    Thanks Milan for that and the extra information on the photo.
    As you can see I did " borrow " from your post on " Old New Zealand Motor Racing ". Appreciate the details you have in your archives.
    Cheers

    Gold Leaf 3 hour Race Pukekohe October 1965

    Photos from Ian Tilley archives - photos are Family Archives taken from Colour Slides

    The Segedin [ co driver D Simmons ] Mustang and a Daimler SP250 - think David Oxton ** see comment Trevor Sheffield believes it is him - he and Bill Kelly finished third, a place ahead of the Mustang.

    Mustang again, with a Mini, Race # 2 or #3 I think - the Matich Stanton Palmer Honda S600 and Lotus Cortina.

    Some Mini's under the Dunlop Bridge on the loop [ Ian thought this photo was 1966 so was on the notes but realised when Mustang in the group photo that it was the " Gold Leaf 3 hour Challenge Race ".- have amended the notes on the photo ]

    I think that the photo depicts me driving the SP250 Daimler, when I was overtaking the Mustang which I finished ahead of. At that point the Oxton car had retired due to losing a wheel.

    Trevor thank you for that - was I thought you or David Oxton hard to read the numbers;
    I will pass that information on to Ian Tilley [ his photo ] and also to Peter Smith, Roger's Brother who has a doosier on Roger Smith's racing exploits.

    This is the start with, I believe you, tucked in behind David Oxton and the Mustang in the centre - from the 1966 " Shell Book of New Zealand Motor Racing " by Peter Greenslade and Euan Sarginson [ Euan Sarginson photo ]

    You with W " Bill " Kelly finished 3rd behind the Morris Cooper S's of Mullins / Neilson 1st and Hamlin / Charles 2nd, with then the Mustang, Segedin / Simmons 4th the Buchanan Austin Cooper S 5th and then Roger Smith and J Bowden in another Daimler SP 250 6th.
    Don't have the full results - only details from the book. Note ; " F Sheffield " when it should be T R Sheffield as in the entry list.
