    Then after the US trip Robbie had the spelling of his name officially changed cos nobody could say it properly, or so we were told at the time.

    Being on a dial-up connection I can't view the coverage but from the programme Anglias were driven by:

    23 M Sexton, 31 T Nagle, 56 D Simpson, 61 T Eve, 57 B Faloon, 88 C Hogan, 75 J Richards.

    This was one of gthe Anglias at the 1965 Paritutu meeting - it had a big argument
    - " Dave Juries Anglia -after he was forced to swerve when Hogans Allardette [ C M Morrie Hogan ] was pushed across the track in front of him. It was his first outing in this car after wrecking his last one at Pukekohe "
    .. and as J L Lawton asks -
    " Who remembers the TV Programme " Car 54 where are you ? "
