    If you Google any number of relevant items, it often points to this site anyway. Sure, the site name might be a little obscure, but Google is very powerful.

    Incidentally, I just googled Tony Brooks and just found out that he passed away May 3rd this year. My hero before he retired and I switched to being a Graham Hill fan.

    One of the most underrated F1 and sports car drivers ever.

    In an effort to be of assistance, I have presented Google with every key word and word group which I would expect a person searching to use, and as expected was unable to locate this site. This was anticipated, as there is no key word within the title in respect of the site subject matter, which Google, powerful as it may be, can latch onto. I would be interested to try an example in respect of what you advise.

    Furthermore when attempting to interest others in the "Roaring Season", I have found it difficult to make sense when quoting the name/title involved. The site is in fact, on the face of it, obscure. LOL

    As a fairly recent arrival here myself, I'd point out that probably the best historic motor racing forum in the world - The Nostalgia Forum - is in exactly the same boat. But between them TNF and TRS are quoted many times when you try and google the history of any particular type or model of race car. Both are now invaluable resources. Changing the name of either is probably now impossible.

    If you switch your search to the 'images' option, Trevor, rather than relying on the text, you might have more success. I typed in Morrari NZ and got 4 TRS images in the first 13.

    I agree with Greg T, too late now to change it, but yes, the title is a little obscure.

    Sadly, you have confirmed that from a practical point of view, the site is totally obscure. LOL

    Last Sunday, the MGCC had their last Pukekohe track day but the weather wasn't the best, so no vintage cars there at all. It wasn't all MGs but enough pics to load up here for a few days. If you don't care for British cars and MG's, you'll have to wait a while until I get back to trawling through scans of older stuff.


    Not all MG Midgets are equal...

    Long time MGB racer Dave Mallin did some driver training with a young driver, which didn't exactly go to plan, so within minutes, he was named as 'the Ian Foster of driver training'...

    (*For those not interested, or overseas, Ian Foster is the current All Blacks rugby coach who was on the end of a 5 match losing run.)

    Oh how we drooled in March 1961 when the E Type was first announced.

    Still one of the few cars that looks right from any angle - especially this one, though the exhaust looks a wee bit low.

    1956 Mallory Park. Always found it very frustrating that a you couldn't walk beyond this point. Being able to walk right around the track is what makes Goodwood so much better than so many other tracks.

    1971 Brands Hatch, James Granger, RWJ MG Special at the rear of the field, was a huge crowd favourite.
