    Wow, these are absolutely magic! I love the site of the kids lying in the sand next to the track. Anymore to come?

    What ever happened to that Brennan RX7? Did he get that car out of the US?

  8. #8
    Don't quote, but think Brennans RX is still around in Sports Sedans down Taupo way awhile back. His (then young) fellow ran the Mk4 Cortina for awhile a few years back as well.

  9. #9
    Yeah its still around (sort off)
    but pretty much in the guise Ralph had it in.
    I did a bit of work on it around 10 years ago, mounting a ford V8
    it was on trade me a year ago painted red and lived about 10 Minites from here

    Steve, breifly it was built buy Grant from a roadcar in Tauranga. Grant had an off at Puke and then again down south.
    The shell sold to mossmans and space framed and run by Jeniifer Mossman, then ralph, then sold to brian?? who had it advertised a year back, but likely still has it.

    Boy, these are brilliant. Re the Frank Ryan Capri, is this the car later raced by Avon Hyde?

    1992

    Sorry about the delay with this but life has been insane over here the last few weeks, just starting to catch up on everything. Here are shots from the 1992 International, including 2 young Thomsons standing on the start finish line.

    Thanks again for the updates Sean. Did I see that Brett Riley EB XR8 for sale a while back? It was in pretty rough shape. Maybe it was another of the Falcons from that era.

    Many thanks to Sean for assisting in resizing and posting photos up to now. Have found a programme that I can use to resize so will begin by posting photos from the Peter Jackson International Motor Racing Series 1993 - Teretonga Park
