    Photos of JBS Norton at McLaren Festival

    The gentleman who owns this car (Garry Simkin, Sydney) is trying to find any photos that might have been taken of his car (JBS Norton # 141) when he brought it to NZ to race at the McLaren Festival. He has sourced a couple through GroungSky but would be interested in buying copies of any taken by any professional or amateur photographers

    Cheers Mike

    Hi Nigel,

    You were just the person I was hoping would see this and respond as I felt certain you might be able to help. Garry's email addres is gjsimkin@iprimus.com.au.

    All the best for the festive season and have really great New Year. Are you going to the BMW Festival in January. We are going up for both weekends and staying in the motorhome. If so, I would like to meet you and put a face to the name.

    Cheers Mike

    Hiya Mike,

    I'll send some images across the ditch for Garry. If he goes to the trouble & expense of bringing his car over from Oz so we can enjoy it then the least I can do is to send him some pics.

    I'm planning on going up to HD on the second Saturday. I'll be wearing my new Roaring Season T Shirt [McLaren] & wearing a backpak. so I'll keep an eye out too

    Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

    Cheers
    Nigel

    That will be great and will keep an eye out for you. The last couple of years we have been parked at the bottom end of the pit area against the fence and I am hoping that we will be allowed to stay there again. Out motorhome is a pale cream colour with a maroon bottom and an orange middle stripe and is called 'Hawkeye'. My home email address if mikefeisst@xtra.co.nz. Can send you a couple of photos if I have your home address.

    Hoping my T shirt arrives so that I can wear it too.

    I haven't had a chance to look through all of your photos (intend to do so) and just wondered if you had a good action shot of Roger Townshend's Cologne Capri at the McLaren Festival.

    Cheers Mike

    Hi Mike,
    On the day I attended the McLaren Festival there were 3 similar liveried capris; No 1 which was a static display in the pits & No 2 which raced & completely blitzed the oppostion. I'm presuming Roger Townshends is No 2
    Anyway here's a link to the shots taken that day that I've loaded onto my Flickr page

    Hi Nigel,

    Thats the car - I think it looks surperb and Roger keeps it looking immaculate. He also owns the original Fahey Capri that is being rebuilt. When I was down there in NOvember Roger showed me the original dash unit from the car still with nall the original guages in it. His mate owns the origianl Fahey Escort FVA and it is being rebuilt by the same people. Won't that be a sight when both of those hit the track.

    Cheers Mike
