    For the last couple of days I have been chatting to a guy in Nelson about his Yellow LC XU-1 that he bought as a “box of bits” from Tauranga in 2004. He has the original ownership papers and the Chassis number on the papers matches to the number stamped into the left hand inner guard and is registered with the plate FH1159 and Richard Brocklehurst appears as the first owner on the papers.

    It appears as though Richard Brocklehurst's Yellow LC XU-1 isn't in OZ as originally thought.

    This is the entry from the Golden 100, I assume to be early 1972
    Does anybody recall the driver or entrant of the Torana XU1 , car 72
    Driver Graham Wade
    Owner Dr James Aickin, (possibly from Titirangi)

    Can't help with the driver but I can confirm that the race was held on September 3, 1972.
