    RiP Indeed. Met him many times over the years and probably a driver who deserved more recognition than he got.

    Dennis Marwood - in an early event in March 1956

    John Windelburn sent me this in what he believes is Dennis Marwood first event in the MG TD.
    The Waikato Motor Racing Club event a North Island Championship Hill Climb ... held on the 17th March 1956.
    John was there in his Morris Minor which he had prior to the Austin A35 and many others cars since.

    The previously posted photo of Dennis at Waharoa in the MG TD is also believed to be from 1956
