    I remember it well. I was there.
    A shame the circuit did not last, It only ran for a few years.

    Great shot of Graeme Lawrence and the late Jack Inwood in the 1965 film.

    Hi Folks, I am looking for evidence that my Wainwright Formula Vee raced at Paritutu in 1971/72 I have been reliable informed that The car driven by its builder Eric Wainwright held the lap record. I need evidence of its participation IE. result sheet or programme to prove to the powers that be that it is a genuine historic race car. If anyone can help it would be much appreciated, as I can not take part in any events with out a vehicle i/d or log book.
    Thanks,

    Morley Faulkner

    This report of the 12 March 1972 Pukekohe Formula Vee race proves the car actually did get to compete on the track.
