    MG Metro time...
    1983

    1999 I bought this well used MG Metro from MGCC's Geoff Broadhead, who was the second owner. The first owner I discovered was one of our regular badminton players!

    I bought this with 250,000kms on the clock - and the head had never been off! Several exhaust down pipes had been fitted over the years but after I had a flexible section welded in, no more problems. Geoff had taught both his daughters to drive in the car and it was later used to carry hay bales around but from what I can gather, only ever had one clutch replacement.
    Marcos still being repaired after an incident at Whenuapai that I got caught up in. Ruined the immaculate post restoration of the car - just the first time it would get caught up in someone else's problems...

    Tony Teesdale a 3 time NZ Championship driver won the 1987 in this Metro, also he competed in the 1986 RAC Rally before shipping it to NZ.

    I don't think that's Teesdale's car. It's the car Peter Johnson had.

    This is the caption to a photo of that car in 2012.

    It even included a static rally car show that was open to the public. While I was killing some time one morning I headed inside to check out some of historical machines that were on display. It’s hard to believe now, but this MG Metro 6R4 International-spec Group B machine was a real wreck when it arrived in New Zealand years ago…

    Which of the 6R4 cars shown (3 of them) are you referring to?

    Tony Teesdale had Repco and Engine Rebuilders support in NZ, also when he did the 86 RAC Repco and Engine Rebuilders supporting him. The bottom 2 cars were Peter Johnsons

    I think you will find the Unipart car is not PJ's. I reckon I know who owns it.

    Again, apologies if any of these have been posted before.

    Pukekohe 1983 - but not too sure of the date. It seems that the club track was used clockwise and anti clockwise - which is like having two tracks for the price of one!

    Sunday's meeting at HD was fairly low key. Tried the new camera, but although I'm still learning to drive it, I suspect that it is better confined to static shots in good light. Seemed a bit slow writing the image to the card. The long lens might be useful but the image quality isn't as good as the DSLRs.

    Sad to get a message today from the MGCC, that Morrinsville MG stalwart Andy Lowe passed away at the weekend.

    Andy drove an MG BV8 with great gusto on track or metal and in recent years had assisted with the sponsorship on an annual MGCC track day. A very popular guy and will be much missed. RiP.

    The Nikon P900 is excellent for this sort of shot.

    According to Derek Bell, he was more excited to be driving the Eagle V12 at Goodwood, 2018, even though only a demo, than almost any other car he has ever driven. The car was driven on the second day by Sir Jackie Stewart. In many eyes, the nicest looking 3 litre F1 car of all time.
