    In practice, Phil was going like a rocket, straight out of the box. Sadly, he overdid it in race 1.

    My apologies that all pics from Pukekohe are from left to right, but recovering from a cataract op just three days earlier, I opted to call it day early, (before lunch) rather than hike around to another vantage point, just to get some shots of cars going from right to left and exposing my eyes to the welcome but very bright sun. The sun is so much brighter and colours more vivid now both eyes have been done...

    Your pics are much appreciated Ray, sorry we missed you.
    I know about the eyes, it is amazing isn't it.

    Bit of a gap from 1937 to 1990 .. ??

    I think it is great, coming from an Austin Riley Morris Family - except for the Arroll Johnson my Dad and Uncle's jointly owned first car - family was Austin Nuffield from the 1930's until the 1980's My Dad had Austins and Rileys from the late 1930's until mid 1950's when Ford ruled a Prefect up to 1963 then a Zephyr 1963 - 68 and back to Austins an 1800 Landcrab and then an Allegro { Aggro } a car I did not like.
    Uncle Ed of NSCC fame had Austin Morris Riley's several - back to Morris a Minor in the mid 1950's with some oddballs a Standard Vanguard whilst in Ceylon 1955 ish, and an Opel when in Egypt in 1960 -61 ..then a Triumph Herald a Mark 3 Zodiac followed by that Rover P6B and the last interesting car an SD1 Rover Van den Plas Vitesse with Walkinshaw mods ..

    The first Austin .. a 1929/30 seven ..

    On a different note altogether. A few years ago I went to the Caistor Castle Motor Museum in Norfolk, but wasn't very happy that they didn't allow photographs, though the collection is large and well laid out.

    Doing some family research, it seems that the paternal line is well and truly entrenched in Norfolk villages so I have pencilled in a bit of a visit next year, before Goodwood. I sent off an email to Caistor and it seems they have now changed their policy, so I have added it onto my itinerary. I'm rather hoping that there is a race meeting on at Snetterton (maybe an Aston Martin meeting on the August Bank Holiday Monday?) just to make it all really worthwhile heading that way. I haven't been to Snetterton before!

    Over the years, I am somewhat surprised that there are so few historic sports racing cars competing, given that there must have been hundreds around.

    Can someone please confirm the make of this car? "Ford MP21" in the programme but further research suggests it might be a Dulon.

    That is Michael Clark in his yellow Formula Ford Crossle 32F number 32.

    Plus I found this 1978 Formula Ford ad. for Jonathan Palmer.

    Not quite the same as your # 33 car but interesting.

    Could # 33 be a Van Diemen Formula Ford ?

    (Dr) Jonathan Palmer raced a V6 (Ford) Marcos. Chris Barber's former road manager, Richard Oliver, used to race an MG Midget and tells the story of Jonathan Palmer's Marcos mangling a gearbox in practice, then raiding a Ford Transit van in the paddock, 'borrowing' the gearbox for the race, then returning it to the Transit... I love these sorts of stories - and Richard is a magical story teller. With 25 years on the road, with arguably Britain's best ever Jazz Band, there are plenty of stories. Some are in fact, repeatable!
