    RiP - Harley Norager

    Although Harley hadn't raced for a few years, he will forever be remembered as the first ERC driver to break the then current speed bar, and cop a drive through penalty.

    When he did this at Manfeild, the commentator was unaware of the break out rule, but the enthusiastic crowd were then cheering him on as he rejoined at an undiminished pace.

    He ran a genuine MG BV8, albeit modified and that is the car that Dave Mallin races today.

    Pre ERC/Leisuretime, Harley competed in Chris Watson's/TACCOC's Gasoline Alley series, and was always bemused that although he usually won on track, he lost points because the car wasn't BRG, wasn't leaking oil, wasn't on wire wheels, had Japanese sparkplugs and was neither wooden framed nor fibreglass bodied!

    Harley had suffered poor health recently, and passed away last night, February 1st.

    No details as yet as to funeral arrangements but farewell to a quick, sporting driver.

    Pic is Manfeild 1997, and the other car is also a genuine B V8, driven by Murray Baber.
