    Should be a piece about the series in this month's MSNZ news.

    New season's provisional calendar on the website, but still waiting for confirmation on a couple of dates.

    We already have 20 paid up for the new season, 4 months early! I am now away until end August so I hope others will post on here to keep the thread ticking along as we approach season 29...

    All I can do is wish all supporters (and even the occasional critics!) a safe and happy winter and we'll see you at the Ice Breaker in September.

    A great ERC article via Motorsport NZ news Ray, well written and informative and thanks for the mention of HMC and what both groups are trying to achieve for Historic and Classic racing.

    Cheers Dale. The same philosophy, just a different way to achieve it. "Participation and enjoyment and using our cars - with camaraderie as the bonus." Hope you enjoyed the chocolate fush... Now I must finish the packing.

    Add:

    car numbers 233, 60, 502, 280, 22, 623, 19, 28, 48, 69, 333 and 739.

    Several more on the way including another Jaguar XJS. We (I!) do need more Brit cars, but we have to understand that the numbers of available cars has been shrinking dramatically which is why we are now swamped by Euros and even Datsun Z's.

    Ironically, had we stuck to our roots, namely a BMC 4 cylinder series, we'd only have 2 cars registered so far! Which just goes to prove that no matter what your initial philosophy, times change and you have to have a more open mind, as what may work today, may not work tomorrow.

    Equally, if too many cars are excluded from the Classic Scene, particularly if they aren't fast or potential winners with massive horsepower or 100% pure, then the scene will sink to the same bland levels as Tier 1 racing.

    With the Aussie V8s vacating their 2015 April Pukekohe Anzac date, ERC have accepted an invitation to compete and that will now be our final round of the season - and double points.

    Several more drivers have renewed and we are now up to 70 paid up drivers.

    Now 82 drivers paid up, but a post to say that our new website is up and running - just!

    Instead of being part of my own site, it is now stand alone.

    http://www.ercrace.nz

    Struggling to get to grips with learning new software - yet again...

    Ganley Festival - combining both AES & Arrows runners to make a potentially full 46 car grid... Grid is almost full already with well over 40 cars.

    Welcome to the new registrations (now up to 88 paid up drivers) - one of which has a good history, Win Jacob. Now running a 3.6 XJS Jaguar. With Bryce Platt also running and Ray Williams renewing his registration, it is good to see drivers from the early 1980's still having a good go and enjoying themselves.

    Just a snapshot from the website with the drivers uploaded so far. The current priority is getting the Ganley driver pics sorted and ready for the poster, so this is not the full list:

    The final ERC Ganley poster. Apart from the bottom two corners, pictures are of drivers who have entered for the ERC races. The bottom two corner are of car 31 (which has been updated and is now an XJ40) and I had to use Gary Johnstone's XJS as I don't have a pic of car 36, Win Jacobs 3.6 XJS.

    Ganley Festival, weekend 2. Wow! 1 Practice (55 cars) one scratch race, 46 cars - sadly finished under safety car due to an engine blow up. Thanks to the generosity and assistance from Rob Berggren, Craig Howser was back out again Saturday afternoon after an engine transplant.

    Two handicaps Saturday - 44 cars - two yellow flags - minor damage to three cars. (One self inflicted!)

    Two handicaps Sunday - 46 & 44 cars - as far as I am aware, no yellow flags, no panel damage.

    Absolutely brilliant with cars 4 wide at times and more often than not, two or three wide in the later stages.

    Spirit of the meeting award, for the ERC series, awarded to Craig Howser.


    I hope the spectators enjoyed it as much as the drivers... I hope also that those who did enjoy it, pass on their comments to the organisers. I hope photographers post their pics on here too.
