    Ok, sorry, made an assumption. Here is Doyle's Begg on the outside of the front row of what I assume to be Ruapuna, round 3 of the 72/3 Gold Star, a change that took place between rounds 1 and 2, I quote from round 2 at Pukekohe 12/11/72 ...while Neil Doyle managed to coax his old FM2, now Tyrell nosed, Begg into third to make it an all-Begg finish.
    From round 3 at Ruapuna 19/11/72 ... Neil Doyle's good luck deserted him and the Begg FM2 suffered from chronic handling problems and overheating causing a pit stop and several 'moments'...
    and if I had fully read the report from Bay Park 31/12/72
    McRae was driving Alan Rollinson's car experimenting with a Tyrell nose in practise and finding all sorts of problems with it and the car generally, as his own car was late arriving for the Tasman Series.

    Good stuff, yes I do recall that nose on Doyle's Begg now.

    Pretty big crowd in at Ruapuna for a Gold Star meeting !

    The only hint from Gavin Shaw's photograph was Teretonga, so I looked at the F5000 entry list from 30/1/72 and found Neil Doyle in the FM2 #152

    On the right track, driver is well known for racing on 2 wheels. Born in Hobart but a Kiwi at heart.

    I certainly know where I was when I took these two "Box Brownie" photos.
    One coming and one going away.
    But I am not quite sure if it is Dave Simpson in the Cambridge Team BMW and perhaps Gary Sprague in his Escort + the Alan Boyle Mini ?
    So if someone can fill in the who and when, I would be most grateful.

    Roger Anderson raced a BMW after racing a Mini. I am sure he was one in the Cambridge Racing Team.

    Thanks Peter,
    that probably would be Roger Anderson and the rest of the puzzle continues such as the others in the pics and when etc..
