    January 1989 - at Ardmore.

    The 1983 (not 84) Ardmore reunion meeting was March 5/6th at Pukekohe, not Ardmore.

    Ardmore and Little Ardmore ..

    Last Grand Prix meeting at Ardmore was 1962, by January 1963 Pukekohe had opened.
    Both Auckland Car Club and Northern Sports Car Club used to run meetings at Ardmore called usually " Little Ardmore " meetings as they were Closed Club events. the last would have been in 1962.
    Believe the only meeting after that was the 1989 Ardmore Classic / Historic meeting.

    The " 30 years of Grand Prix Racing " event in 1983 was the Ardmore /Pukekohe event and as ERC says was held at Pukekohe.
    There was a Magazine produced around the event .. I have the magazine so can check it out for you " Spyda " !!

    Interesting the results of the sports car race, Graham Meekings was 3rd he was avery popular Hamilton Car Club member and MANZ steward. Very sadly he died suddenly, he did not see his son Ross have a lot of Rally success in the 80s and 90s

    I am not aware of any, however, I do have a programme for the 1982 " 1ZB ' 1080 ' " Wings and Wheels event at Pukekohe.
    I am unsure if it actually went ahead
