    For my money, one of the stars of the meeting, Patrick Blakeney-Edwards. He also drove 'Owlet' in the same two driver race!

    Same car (#4185) but second driver. (See post #4205) Should have been Rowan Atkinson, as the second driver in the programme, qualifying. It is in fact Duncan Pittaway. (Thanks Oldfart.)

    That helmet in post 4203 I would hazard a guess as Duncan Pittaway.

    I wondered about that too, as it didn't look like Rowan Atkinson in either photograph. Must see if I can find the results.

    Later: Thanks Rhys. I was going by the race programme, but it is indeed Duncan Pittaway, who like PBE was also doing double duty. Earlier post has been edited.

    I have been looking at the lead car in post 4201 that you have as a Maserati. The badge on the front is not a Maserati. I think I know what it is, but DVLA shows it as an "Alton Sports, 1958 3781 cc" which wasn't what I thought.

    Correct again Rhys! Thanks. I must admit I had made a mental note to check that one, but the mental capacity must be fading. I suppose that wading through several thousand pics, it was inevitable that one or two would end up wrongly filed. Should have gone to Spec Savers.

    Here we are with it correctly labelled.

    Alton-Jaguar Sports. Love this era of sports cars or sports racing cars and when so many individuals managed to build their own.

    Only because I was curious Ray! The body on the Alton looks very like a Mistral and the badge on the front very like a Buckler one!

    The badge is in fact 'Jaguar'! I think it is a fair bit bigger than a Mistral, but agree, it certainly looks like one.

    Arthur Nash (Turner BMC) rebuilt the Mini engine I bought to NZ that eventually passed through the hands of Mike Lucas.
    Arthur claimed he was a distant relative of the NZ politician, Walter Nash. Pic taken 24th February at a CUAC Mallory Park sprint, that unfortunately, didn't include the hairpin.

    Back in 1966, when NZ's 20 year-old petrolheads were hooning around in cars, those of us in the UK couldn't afford to run cars, as the compulsory insurance and low youth wages made it impossible, so sitting at the kitchen table with pencil and paints was an alternative.

    The monthly model car magazine 'Miniature Auto' had excellent plan drawings of cars and these were used as a base. (I still have the magazines!)

    If I have shown these before, I apologise. They were painted on card and stuck to the bedroom wall with blu-tack, so they haven't aged too well. Back then, cars were still individually recognisable - and you didn't need to be a graphic artist to reproduce the commercial signage.

    A year later, working up to 90 hours week, which continued for another six years, the brushes laid dormant and did so until 1999!

    Brilliant, Ray Green, thanks for sharing, and well worth keeping.
    Most of my bedroom wall stuff has gone missing. Car stuff it was too !!

    I have three pics from Goodwood that just won't upload. No idea what the issue is.
