    Today I was unpacking another box of stuff from my storage unit and I found a 64-page Supplement from the NZ Sunday Times that previewed the 1987 Nissan Mobil Series. Also in the box was a 36-page Supplement from The Dominion on the 1986 Series.

    This is the contents list from the Sunday Times.

    Nissan Mobil 500

    Have just received from BMC BOY the " Official Programme " for the Benson and Hedges Saloon Car Classic at Pukekohe
    17th November 1985, with details of results from the previous Rounds at Manfield 20 October 1985 and Baypark 27 October 1985.
    It is interesting as a mate, John Trigance whom I only met in the 1990's was running a Toyota Corolla GT from the Toyota Dealership in Pukekohe that he was an owner of.
    The only overseas driver was Dick Johnson driving with Neville Crichton in a Ford Mustang GT,unlike the Nissan Mobil Race where there were many overseas [ mainly Australian ] drivers

    Interesting is the second " Official Programme " from the New Zealand Grand Prix 1986 which has an Advert / Promotion for the Nissan Mobil 500 series. quote from the Ad ;

    Wellington Street Race - Sunday, 26th January, 1986

    Milan what a great find - the programme I mention in my latest post for the B and H has the Black " John Player Special " sponsored BMW on the front cover

    I wonder if Nissan had booked a full page advert in The Herald expecting a win in the 1987 Wellington race. Nissan's plans would have had to be changed when the BMWs were successful.
