    These all appear to be from the pre-SCANZ era, and most aren't 2-litre cars. Perhaps Steve would like to peel them off into another thread, and leave this one "pure"...

    Either way -
    Post 5: Lycoming Special No.1 (twice), an MGB GT, Rhubarb III? (Bob?), Ferrari 250LM, Scott Wiseman's E-type

    Post 6: PMS-Climax?, JRM?, Lotus Seven 100 (Ross West?), Lancer 71, Wiseman again, JRM?

    Post 7: first pic looks like a single-seater (which I can't identify), then Elfin or Gemco (they both at Gemco bodies at one stage, and I can't remember OTTOMH who ran 59)

    David yes most of those photos are from a earlier time ,The Rhubarb 3 photo is possibly of Colin Smith

    Does the Sid 2 that Jamie Aislabie raced in this photo still exist in NZ ?

    Yes, I think the JRM is piloted by Bob Hyslop, he used to wear a half-bubble visor. Pedersen ran 59 in the Gemco I think.
    Good crowd in at Pukekohe !

    From what I understand the true SCANZ series in the 2 litre format didint start untill 1972 although there was some form of a sportscar series running prior to its inception.
