    Otaua Hill Climb ..

    Kevin runs either a J2 MG or the Wolseley Hornet Special and was scrutineering. As mentioned on Nigel's thread, I bought a basket case Singer Bantam (off Kevin), but it was beyond my somewhat limited skill set, so I sold it on - as a basket case.

    As regards Otaua, when the MGCC took over from Austin Healey, Derek Prior and his helpers did the permit side of things and I did the timing (radios and three or four watches, no telephone wire) and results - in the early days of a laptop and Star NX10 printer, so results all done by 3pm!

    The Otaua Tavern which we used as our base is closed and somewhat run down.
    ERC Thanks for the information about the Speedex and your involvement at Otaua too !!.
    Otaua Hill Climb
    Our timing system was very basic - small club with at the beginning very enthusiastic helpers which did fade over time affiliated Club Northern Sports and was horrified with some of their events - kids in cars at Gymkhana, as passengers, No permits they didn't realise a permit gave you Liability Insurance.

    Will be part of my archives of events ..
    I do hope to make the 2020 running .. Also looking at being at C and C in April,- with a bit of planning .. we can have another chat !!
    Cheers

    P S your post #2780 - can only see one of the six photos - the MG Midget " OPLOCK ".. others missing

    In terms of the most photogenic action pics of single seaters, the Cooper Bristol would be in my top 5.

    Spotted in a front garden in Queenstown. I have asked before if anyone knows exactly what it is - or was, but zero responses, so reposted now there is a larger audience.

    Hi Ray, Your Queenstown car looks to be a Puma.

    Thanks Paul. That looks to be correct. Interesting the ad says '100mph', so what underpinnings? May give google a burst, though I'm sure there was a Puma produced in South America (Brazil, not Argentina!) I saw at the London Racing Car Show, must have been around 1965/66.

    According to Patrick Harlow's book, the chassis was a bespoke unit. The only engine mentioned is the prototype's A35. Bear in mind that it could also be a Tiki or Falcon as they were all derived from the UK Ashley. I went with the Puma because of the distinctive sidelights on the Puma brochure matching the Queenstown car. There is a bit more info on the NZ Cars - A Cottage Industry thread on this site.

    100mph from an A35 engine would be a little ambitious, without a little more than the twin carb kit offered!
