    Raymond Mays cylinder head on a Mk2 Ford Zephyr Ken (whoops, edited to Roger...).

    Trojan 101 and 103 were in Donington and will post photos in the coming weeks no doubt.

    Thankfully, the Goodwood entry does have plenty of cars that weren't there in 2016 so I'm happy that there will be a lot of additions to my photographic library.

    Had a sad email from Alan Horner (who is in GB) and was expecting to do the whole 3 days of Goodwood but has done his back in, so if anyone knows of anyone in the UK wanting to purchase tickets at face value... Saturday tickets sold out weeks ago.

    Geez Ray,
    I would have loved to spend those days at Goodwood with you..oh well, another time perhaps.
    If you see Patrick Head there do not show him any of your Trojan T101-103 photos as I think that was a time in his life he would rather forget ! But if you do have a chance, remind him that he still owes me for the petrol for the Morris Minor on our trip from Croydon to Silverstone return, July 1973 !
    Safe travels, looking forward to your photos etc..

    Ray, thanks - A mate of mine had a Mark 11 Zodiac in the early 1970's - he lived in the Waikato - near Ken H at Walton - his had the Raymond Mays Head but think the carburettor was a twin choke Weber a down-draft from memory. his was an Auto I seem to think.

    Hi Ray, hope you enjoyed yourself over there.

    The Lancia of that model is one of my favourite Italian cars.

    Cheers

    Interesting Spgeti, but in the two weeks in the UK, I saw just one Marcos (in a museum) but several Lancia Aurelias.

    Even more surprising, more Facel Vegas (French, not Italian of course). One in a museum. One on the open road two days before Goodwood; the Rob Walker Facel Vega in the tribute parade and three more in the pre '66 car park at Goodwood.

    At six picture posts a time, it will be a while before I have posted the pic of the crop(ped) on here.

    Ray, Thanks for the " personal " pictures, and Bruce enjoyed his too !!
    The AH 100 has quite a history - I hope you have more photos of it.

    Cheers, Roger D.

    Plenty to come Roger... However, I seem to have a (owner?) problem with the camera focus point moving. I need to have another read of the manual, as I unfortunately have to ditch what would have been excellent pics, as although I have it set for a single point focus, that point seems to move around at will, so I have several (far too many!) with in focus backgrounds but the subject is a bit fuzzy. Very frustrating. Difficult to tell at the time without wearing glasses and expanding the pic. The net result is a load of duff ones.

    Pity, as watching the cars four wheel drift through Madgwick with the sun in exactly the right place is a dream position.

    They sounded superb too! The green one on the left is I believe the ex Jack Sears' car. They were celebrating the first touring car season of 1958. Jack Sears famously won it after an equal points race off, in Riley 1.5s... Can't see that happening today.

    Probably because the only saloons in 2016 were Austin A30s/A35s, this year, the St Mary's Trophy race and the Jack Sear's race were right up my street - and some new pictures for the library.

    Yes they were really a wolf in sheeps clothing. They sound awesome as when I stated work in Whangarei one of the mechanical apprentices had a hot A90.
    Sad that the Riley 1.5 of Arthur’s went down south.

    Safe trip Ray.

    I presume you mean the ex-Jimmy C Wolseley Bruce?

    The Sears 1958 cars were fantastic to watch at Goodwood and they didn't sound very standard at all! Personally, bog standard cars of that vintage aren't very appealing and although limiting modifications may keep costs down, purely from a spectator viewpoint, bog standard cars don't sound right or look right on a race track especially of that vintage.

    The Hooter's series in NZ appears to be little more than a classic trial and maybe they need a class for period modified and a class for standard? Those 3 big Austins were very impressive on the track, as were several other cars, including the noisiest MG Magnette I have ever heard. Using cross ply tyres, there were many examples of four wheel drifts across several classes.

    Plenty of pics now to be posted over the next few months but getting RSI from several long sessions of mouse work - not housework.

    Incidentally Ken, Hexagon of Highgate actually built my Marcos! I have copies of the original build paperwork.
