    Still diving into the old slides.

    The late Roger Williamson came to prominence driving this well turned out Ford Anglia. April 1970. Say it quickly and you can easily forget it was almost 50 years ago...

    Another taken before his time was Tony Brise, seen here doing a demo at Mallory Park, August 1975, just 3 months before losing his life in the Graham Hill plane crash.

    I may have posted this before but I still have no idea of the make of car. Snapped at a Silverstone test session early 1977. If anyone knows what it is, PLEASE let me know!

    Thanks 928. I don't know how you managed to ID that, given that they only made a couple - and I must confess, I'd never heard of them.

    I'm intrigued to know how you knew! I'm assuming it ran in the Shellsport Series, which included F1, F2, Atlantic etc. and also explains the presence of the Brabham BT44 which also ran in that series now and again and was at the same test session, along with the Dolomite Sprint and the de Cadanet Lola.

    Given the lack of signage or numbers, probably only just completed.

    Thanks. All I need to do now is pin down the date and work out why I was there. It might have been between finishing my training course and starting work in my current career, so I am guessing March 25th, two days before the Sana was at Snetterton, but it could even have been earlier.

    Thanks so much 928. That has been an enjoyable, but very time consuming and educational trawl through several websites - something that a certain critic wouldn't really understand.

    I am fighting the flu and waking at weird hours !
    A little Sana info;

    The Sana in Formula Atlantic specification.

    The first Sana was a F Atlantic chassis that appeared in the Spring of 1976, it was designed by Gordon Fowell, designer of one of the 1973 Chris Amon-driven F1 Tecnos and like the Tecno it was built by John Thompson The new car was driven by Cyd Williams and it showed some promise with a 2nd place finish first time out. As a result of this success a F3 version was constructed, the F Atlantic versions continued to do well reasonably driven by Cyd Williams, Terry Perkins and Nick May. It was later raced in Libre races in the North of England as the Barton JTB3.


    The F3 version of the F Atlantic car appeared only once, driven by Larry Perkins at the Monaco GP support race, it qualified on the last row of the grid and was retired by Perkins due apparently to its evil handling. Evidently Fowell had decided that his suspension design was correct and therefore didn't fit any roll bar adjustment. The F3 design was the same as the F Atlantic car with its full width nose and pronounced wedge shape provided by the monocoque and bodywork. Power came from a Brown-Ford engine that wasn't reckoned to be the most powerful around.

    Drivers
    1976 Terry Perkins.

    The 1977 car (my picture) was probably driven by Tony Rouff (USA) who finished a very creditable 6th at Snetterton, March 27th - but as a Formula 2 car, tailing the F5000's. Fields seemed to have been a bit erratic in the Shellsport series and the Sana was replaced by a Ralt. Rouff took out a win later in the year, but there weren't many F5000's running that day.

    In 1967, I had moved south and purchased my first car (at 21 - it wasn't cheap running a car when wages were so low!) so I was then able to start going to events on my weekend's off (alternate weekends, though usually called in on one of the two days, making it a 13 day working fortnight, as we never ever got the midweek rest day's off).

    One of the earliest solo 4 wheel trips was a second trip to Shelsley Walsh, though I had managed Mallory Park on two wheels.

    I don't think so. April 15th and it was a Classic meeting.

    I took a lot of pics at the 1980 July meeting, several have already been shown on here. Apologies if any are repeats. Not quite as sharp as I would have liked but many are from the pile of slides previously rejected, often because without a telephoto lens of any sort, I was too far away, but being able to crop before scanning, sometimes makes for a half decent pic.

    Taken through the fence at Ferrari's test track - Villeneuve junior 2012. Police were controlling traffic as so many people knew about the test and invaded the area just to catch a glimpse. Amazing.

    Always good to see a less common car. This variety is what makes these series so much more interesting than any one or two make/model series. Not so sure about the wings suddenly appearing.

    Ray- wing was on the Monaro since October 1969.
    Rogers Torana had it since the 80s.
    Blues wing can be found on Phil Schuberts XA Coupe going back to early 90s. Made same time as Craig Pullmans one Just transferred from one car to another.
    None of the above are suddenly appearing.
    Anyone comment on Mark Allens Firenza..been running like this with us since 2013 at least.
    Wings were always feature of Sports Sedans..Alfetta, Algie Monaro, Shewiery Mustang, Park Marina and many more

    The Firenza was running a wing when owned by Russell Due. They are very much part of the Historic Sports Sedan Group.

    If it's any help, I'd put money on that being a C3 Corvette with a supercharged V8. How many of those were running around in 1989?

    Thanks guys. Just that the wings looked new or I hadn't noticed them before.

    Thanks Alan. If you are prepared to put money on it, that is all I need At least I can file it! Spent far too many hours lately trying to date slides. Sometimes you get the information almost as a side issue. Dating Silverstone and Curborough Sprints is a tough one and there are still one or two Pukekohe queries outstanding. About 95% only relate to dates.
