    Celebrated my birthday yesterday with a half day at Pukekohe for the last classic car meeting.

    Mixed feelings. Frustrated that there was only one food outlet and the queue too long to make it worthwhile. Just 1 male WC in the paddock. Where is all the infrastructure for the cars going? Garages, over bridges, Armco concrete barriers, race control buildings etc., etc?

    Pity there isn't a proposed new permanent track in the greater Auckland area. Whenuapai would have been ideal.

    I just hope like hell that the concrete barriers and fences don't end up at HD. They ruined Pukekohe from a spectators point of view and would do the same at HD.

    Totally agree Nigel. There is no need for them. It seems that they never really consider spectators with cameras. Number 2 reason for Goodwood being top of my favourite circuits list - excellent viewing on every corner.

    OK if the spectators are raised above the track and can see all of the car beyond, but if all you can see is a helmet, or through a wire fence, waste of time.

    Maybe better they use the concrete as median barriers on some of our dual carriageways.

    Brit Euro show at Lloyd Elsmore. As a free show, a great display. (Still cropping and filing.)

    1970 " 951MAL " ' My first 'hot' Mini. Owned twice. This was the second time. Loved that car! '

    ERC, my first car was an 850 cc Austin Se7en - Mini a 1960 model in early 1967 until late 1968, and my third car 1971 - 74 was also an 850 cc Austin Mini by name and I had it fitted with wider - reverse rim Cooper S wheels made by Dunlop - so similar but 12,000 miles away. They were great fun, needed regular attention, but Fun ..

    Cheers Roger

    Ray drove my car at Whangarei, (January 2000) as his own car along with many others, was excluded by MSNZ the day before the event. His lap times a were a little quicker than mine, put down to his lighter weight... and his difficulty in reaching the brake pedal, which was wound back as far as it would go. He did a Scott Dixon and drove with a pillow behind him.

    A fair few pics at Hampton Downs yesterday, but pics of the ERC practice before they called a halt for a while, for the fog to lift, are a challenge!

    Several incidents causing delays.

    Older pics again. 1971 and 1973:
