    I wonder where they got my pictures?

    Maybe they thought someone else took them?

    Ray, some great shots, ask them for permission and money !!
    The museum is very small only 5 or 6 cars and three of these boards, track construction this one and the history of the track there should be more. all contained in the kitchen cafe area.

    .
    The two pics I can see of mine are the colour one of race starts...

    Who runs the museum? I wouldn't ask for money, but I do want to be credited for the pics.

    In post 9 second picture a red Alfa Sprint is chasing down a blue GTV. Sometime back an Australian company was fitting these little sprints with a 2.5 Alfa V6 and latter a Walkinshaw Holden V8. It was called the "Giocattolo". I don't know how many of either version were built or if any still exist. Apparently the V8 version had a performance akin to a F1 McLaren of the day. Spgeti is not the only one who enjoys the Italian machinery so thanks for posting these.

    When the owner of one of those Giocattolos got killed in it at Eastern Creek it was said that there had been about seven of them built, IIRC.

    I haven't been to Lakeside since it reopened, but I see there are now garages strategically placed to spoil the easy viewing pleasure we used to have. It always amazed me that they built that 3-story building right in the middle of the paddock area where it would block the view of most people at the circuit in some way.

    Ray, Queensland Raceway run the track as well as Ipswich.

    just go to " queenslandraceway.com.au ". I am sure they will want to acknowledge the pictures, although it could be like Baypark, where according to BMC BOY, Peter Hanna requested pictures from anyone wanting to be treated as an acredited " race Photographer

    Allan the car behind the Blue GTV is a Lancia, there was in post #3, bottom picture an Alfa with a very radical rear wing, not Giocattolo, but radical, it was quick car too !!.
    think there are a couple more for the " Alfisti " in the forum, will check them out.
    I also have specification sheets in four languages issued by Alfa Romeo in 1965 covering all their models, if you would like scans of these, send your E-mail via PM on the forum.
    cheers, and glad you enjoy the Italians I did. There are some Alfa's in my thread " Monterey Historics 1982 ", more to come.

    These great shots of the Italian Festival Roger. # 105 is a quick car and I love the colour scheme. There is one over here in the South Island painted in a similar scheme but a 1750GTV and not a step front. The blue GTV is painted a real rare colour and I have seen a concourse GTV2000 in the same colour in Tauranga. Very nice.

    Brilliant photos and thread Roger, thanks so much for sharing.

    Roger, you are right, looks like a Beta coupe. After more than 30 years dealing with and working on Italian stuff I should have looked a little closer. Same car also appears in post no 3 3rd photo.

    My pleasure, trying to get used to a new Canon Digital camera, with a reasonable lens set - 18-55 [ used in the pits ] and a 55 - 250 used on the track shots.

    The ticket.

    a few more Italians - not a great shot, too much sun by then.
