    Somehow or other, a set from Goodwood 2016 didn't get uploaded. Never too late. The 'Motor Show' hall was busy, probably with many sheltering from the rain on the Saturday. But this was Friday when the weather was fine.

    The Badger.

    Hi GeeBeeNZ,

    I’ve checked with a couple of friends who knew the previous owner (John Heaney) better than me and have come up with the following information on this car.

    John Heaney owned the car from the 1980s until just before his death in April 2015. He always referred to it as the Badger. He ran it in competition briefly while living around Auckland in the late 1980s (it may be remembered by others who were messing with sports cars around Auckland at the time). John only ran it a few times as the handling (or lack of it) scared him!

    In all the time I knew John, I never consciously laid eyes on the car but we talked about it a few times as it had a similar appearance to my car (Triford Special). For much of the last 25+ years of his ownership, it was down here in Wellington, dismantled while John contemplated fixing the rear end so as to resolve the handling issues.

    The car is in Graham Vercoe’s Historic Racing Cars of New Zealand (as usual, not all information relating to the entry is correct). From memory it was built by Ian Macrae with a fully enveloping body but, obviously, was changed to the open wheeled configuration at some point.

    Basic details of its assembled parts are: space frame, split beam front axle, Cortina 1500 pre-crossflow engine, trailing arm rear suspension with a Triumph Herald differential and (by the look of it) a 4 link set up.

    Seems the uploader system isn't working for me...

    Can't select the files in bulk (six) at the moment. No idea what has changed, but it is too long winded uploading one at a time.

    Steve is aware of the issue, could be related to improved security settings, so in the meantime, I'll busy myself with filing the recent pics - and maybe weeding out some of the near duplicates of many cars. This is more of an issue in the digital age, where instead of taking two or three rolls of film at the most, in a day, say 100 shots, now it can be 700/800 a day easily - more so with an event such as Goodwood, with so many fresh subjects.

    Taking pictures of the same car at different meetings and from different locations is fine, but sooner or later, you end up with near identical ones. Culling them later however, is a major, time consuming mission and has to be slotted in with the other computer housekeeping.

    Can someone please confirm country of origin for this PRS Formula Ford? Even our friend Google doesn't easily come up with the answer.

    English - a short lived but fairly successful outfit. I have always regarded Dave's car as arguably the prettiest FF

    Thanks Michael. It's amazing what you CAN'T find easily on the internet.

    Uploading issues still not fixed, so only a couple. Looking forward to Hampton Downs (short track) for the annual low key HRSCC meeting on Sunday. (Replaces Taupo.)

    Trying to slim down the library of photographs, whilst the uploader problems persist.

    Made a start on the British Road cars. In terms of makes, from 'A to E' only, so far, slimmed it down to 1465 pics...

    Re #1851 - Badger Special. As most seem to accept it as based on a Mallock U2 and not knowing too much about what is different, the badge on the nose cone, snapped at the weekend, still has 'U2', so for classification purposes only, I'm sticking it in the Mallock folder!

    A new ERC entrant running a very well set up Cortina, but unfortunately a head gasket failure cut short his day. The ERC group had a very rough day, especially as it was a non-points meeting, as Keith's Chevette had an oil pump failure. In their first race, a first corner incident involving 3 cars left convenor Chris Browne the unfortunate recipient of the most damage.

    The multiple file uploading facility still isn't working on this site, but a couple more from TACCOC's October meeting.

    Getting way behind with uploading now, so it will be a real 'Mix of Pics' as I upload. I have just invested in a new (well, second-hand) long lens, which has cost an arm and a leg (for me!) which I will be picking up tomorrow, so really looking forward to having a play with that. I may also have to invest in a monopod to support it, as I remember suffering a wee bit at Goodwood from short term RSI after 3 days of solid snapping. Old age is taking its toll, slowly but surely.

    Several members of the intrepid Formula Junior contingent have just returned from a trip to the USA, where they covered many thousands of miles, racing I gather, on both coasts.

    Thanks Paul. Appreciate the support. Ironically (eyeronically?) my eyes are better than in my teens, in terms of distance, but close work is another issue. I needed glasses for driving but could read the tiniest print. Now it is the opposite. Hearing isn't the best either, but at least I can still enjoy 'our' cars before E cars take over.
