    2009 The only Elva Courier GT I have ever seen. Quite a nice looking car too. Good to see it being exercised on track and not just locked away in a private collection.

    The Courier used to be very successful in sports car racing in the days when Dad took us to Mallory Park! Chris Meek was the number 1 regular driver.

    This car is well known but possibly a 1936 photograph and the only one I have seen with it carrying lights. I'm guessing at Donington.

    Once again, apologies if any of these have been shown before I kept a record.

    1974. This Mini at Curborough is driven by someone normally better known for being behind the camera. John Colley's work has often been featured as studio shots in the better quality UK Classic Car magazines.

    I arrived in NZ January 1983 so this would have been one of my very first race meetings, as it wasn't long before I was part of a flag marshalling team, through the NSCC. (That is Northern Sports Car Club, not the Nottingham Sports Car Club of course.) I have this down as February 6th. I arrived in NZ January 17th, so this was probably my first time at a track I'd avidly read about in the UK motoring Press, during the Tasman series era, 20 years earlier.

    The crowd were often on their feet as Tony Rutherford gave it the beans, but he claims that in this shot, a shock absorber had just failed. It was obvious from the crowd reaction, that the Rotary engine was very popular here.

    That was an Auckland Car Club, Club Circuit meeting. I don't have a programme for that event but I can give you the results of the races held that day if that's any use.

    Thanks Milan. I don't need the results.

    Read the above though. "Entries $8 and late entries $16.00". First point is that late entries carried a 100% penalty, (totally agree with that) and secondly, an entry fee back then, albeit on the club circuit, was 1.6% of my then weekly salary, senior management, of $26,000 a year.

    From memory, 2 years later, on the full Pukekohe track, I think I paid $25 for my first ever race.

    Not sure what the entry fee is for next weekend at Hampton Downs, but I'm pretty sure it is somewhat higher than 1.6% of a weekly salary, or even 5%.

    Again, not sure if this has been posted before. Ferrari time.

    1965, Shelsey Walsh Hillclimb. Sievwright's Ferrari. Pic taken on an ancient 30 year old bellows camera - and 20 year old film! Dad was using the 35mm Leica but possibly due to his pre war restrictions of glass plates, didn't seem to take many - and I can't find them anyway.

    Someone posted elsewhere that 'the GAZ Chaika was the most beautiful Russian car ever made'.

    As they were the preferred transport of the KGB and high ranking Russian officials, one wonders if he really thought that...

    A few more Mini variants - and they are varied!

    At Goodwood 2009 they celebrated 50 years of Mini. The famous Outspan Orange - purely a promo vehicle.

    Mini Jem (as in Jem Marsh of Marcos fame) and Bernie's Broadspeed replica. I believe that the story goes that when the CoD system came in, they wouldn't accept his Minisprint, (as raced previously) so I believe he got hold of a Broadspeed replica, rear body mould from Australia and made a superb job of this car. The 'chopped' and deseamed body shell made a huge difference to the aerodynamics and we clocked Bernie at 130mph at Pukekohe on police radar...

    ahhhh, someone else with similar taste, excellent. Based on the Packard, but not quite identical .
    Not surprising that Americans and Russians ..and some Kiwis...have similar tastes in exquisite upmarket cars
