    The run off is new and long overdue!

    As one who had a nasty accident at what was then 'John Deere', (since renamed 'O Deere'), coming across a car, spinning on its roof in the centre of the track, having no escape route on the inside, whilst driving flat out, meant that an expensive and potentially injurious crash was inevitable. Street circuits have to be lined with concrete. Permanent race tracks don't.

    Dennis had already experienced a hiccup at turn one/two, a lap earlier but after half a minute or so, managed to restart.

    Phil Foulkes is now keen to sell his V6 Marcos if anyone is interested. Ex Richard Atkinson, wooden chassis. There is also a part restored V4 Marcos for sale (in Auckland) and my own car, straight 6 Marcos will also be up for sale once I have got it up to WoF standard. That is over 25% of the NZ Marcos' potentially for sale...

    This would be a great spot to use the bazooka lens at Goodwood, but at 2.5kg and limited places where it would be useful, I opted to leave it at home. Depending on how my luggage stacks up in 2020, I may gamble on taking it, but will NOT be carrying it around all day! We may have a NZ Formula Junior or two there in 2020, so at least I may be able to park the lens in the paddock after using it for an hour or two.

    By the time Formula Junior went rear-engined, much of the visual individuality was lost.

    Just a reminder that many of the posts from this meeting are from practice. Experience has taught us that often, a car may only appear for one practice lap, never to be seen again, so I tend to snap, even on the out lap in practice, just to try and cover the field. That means that very often, a car will display more 'attitude' later in practice or during the races.

    A dig into the Z archives... As an aside, even though I'd passed my driving tests in 1964 (car and bike), we had no family car and apart from a couple of short outings in a Mini van, I hadn't done any car driving for a year and the leader of our experimental Scout & Guide group, realising that as an under 21, I couldn't drive one of the hired minibuses to a camp in south Wales, handed over the keys of his Mk 2 Zephyr for the week.

    Wherever we went from the camp, I had to do a double journey as there weren't enough seats in the transport we had. That meant a lot of night driving around south Wales, in addition to the trip to and from Nottingham. I developed a love of night driving on country lanes that week and although I say it myself, a degree of expertise that I would never have achieved otherwise.

    Cadwell Park 1977 - must try and get back there as I haven't been since about 1978.

    Non-genuine MG ZA V8 - still WiP (Work in Progress). Flattering view of the door panel gaps... Bonnet(s), front panel, internal radiator support and bumpers are all fibreglass. Bumpers are to original spec/size but will be extended as the original 'hockey stick' trims are as scarce as hen's teeth. I have a better quality radiator grille surround and grille to fit, but that won't be until more fibreglass work has been done and panels painted - or vinyl wrapped, which may be an easier and cheaper option.

    Trafficators still work! Front side lights have been converted to flashers and the original headlamps replaced by 'Mini' items, with a built in sidelight.

    I posted a Doretti pic back in 2018 - not this pic, but this car. Often called a Swallow Doretti due to the links with Swallow (as per Swallow Sidecars/Jaguar).

    2019 Sunday November 24th. This one has a bit of history. Was once owned by Rootes Group and Triumph works driver, Tiny Lewis.

    "Based on the Triumph TR2 it had much improved stability, its track was 3 in (76 mm) wider and its wheelbase 7 in (178 mm) longer. The Doretti had a tubular Reynolds 531 manganese–molybdenum, medium-carbon steel chassis. Reynolds was another member of the T I Group. The double-skinned body had an inner structural skin made of steel and an aluminium outer skin. Most cars were supplied with Laycock-de Normanville electric epicyclic overdrive and they were capable of 100 mph. 276 Mk I cars were made, including a single fixed head coupe version. The car was designed by in-house engineer Frank Rainbow, and produced in the TI factory at The Airport, Walsall, Staffordshire, England."

    Believed to be one of the last built.

    Note to Terry S. it took almost an hour to get this one pic in a fit state to upload as it just wouldn't scan properly, probably as the plastic slide holder was somewhat out of shape and the slide wouldn't sit flat, which distorted the image. After 3 scans, I removed it from the plastic and mounted it in glass.

    Bringing this post to the fore.

    The Sprite was EC4802 that I owned at one stage the Left Hand Drive ex Canada car AN5L7311 .. Max and Craig Fisher owned it after me in 1980 and it went to Ross Hollings in 1987 - Ross sent me the EC4802 Registration Papers a few years back when the Rego was cancelled - Car is now in Japan - believe sold around 1990 - but seems could be a bit later.
    The Red 100 Six ? / early 3000 - I am unsure whose

    A Ross Hollings photo of the Car .. around 1990 with the " 59BUGI " Registration.

    My original comment on this post was about the Hawke bodied car beside the Marcos - Race #11 .. Ray mentioned not having the Programme.
    Thanks to Remi Rutkowski now have the programmes for both the 1993 and 1994 Telecom Classic Motor Races held in Frankton/Hamilton in those two years..
