    Yes, I think Gregs car was the ex Warren Steel car built at CMR with Les Laidlaw.

    It was blue when Greg had it, I think he stuck it in the side of someone at the Puke hairpin.

    Thanks Larry, great viewing.

    Cheers. I would love to start a database on what cars raced, what cars survived and where they are now. Even just for my own interest.
    I know of 3 - 4 cars still around in the North Island hidden in garages, and some information on other cars, but if anyone has any information on the series or individual cars then let me know.

    Larry - as seen on our HSS thread, the ex Wayne Murdoch 2 door Avenger- seen in some of your videos here ,will be up at Manfeild in Nov for the MG meeting.
    Current owner Michael Johntson says his is only one of 2 correct ones remaining in the SI.
    Strongly suggest you contact him, and I will pm his number to you.
    John.

    John, the Avenger in these videos is not actually the same one. It is Des Bullas' as is mentioned in the programme as per Milan's post earlierin post #406

  14. #414
    Yep, I saw it in the program posted earlier #406-Race 3 car number 48 from 1982 -and confused it with the video.
    So where is Des Bullas car now ?

    Des Bullas is my Uncle. I remembered the car when I was quite young. Unfortunately the shell is no more because I was the one who cut it up when we built the Sunbeam in the early 1990s.
    The car was cosmetically updated to a Series 8 Avenger (The early 80's version with the large headlights) and painted Black and White and raced in Shell Sport and SS2000 (When it was first started).
    We used the running gear from the Avenger to build the Sunbeam (Non Lotus) and because the original Avenger shell had done many miles of racing, we decided to scrap it. Hindsight is a wonderful thing!

    Hopefully these photos are visibale on here.

    There are two genuine shellsport Datsuns for sale in canterbury at the moment if any one knows someone keen on buying a part of Newzealand shellsport histroy. The 160 J "cook datsun" built and run by Reg in the early days with two championship wins and a lot of history. Also for sale is the first Datsun 120y also built by Reg Cook but for Grant Aitken to run. Both these cars are very competitive and capable cars and are run regularly here in the south island. If these photos don't show up i apologize as this is my first time trying to upload and seems to be a little challenging for a semi literate user. :-)

    If there are any genuine inquirys for these cars please feel free to call Jay Townshend on 021 750775.

    Long story short,I am trying to find out what happened to the Raycroft Escort,driven by Dave Waldron.
    My father,Garry Williams helped build it years ago and all I can remember of it is seeing it at Wigram in the pits in the early 80s (I'm 33),so would have been 3-4 years old.
    I got some help from the forums on the OSCA site,before the forums disappeared from Evan Munt who put me onto Neville Agass in the USA.A few emails and some digging from Neville got me a positive lead that the car is up in Auckland and possibly still racing.He told me to contact Grant Brennan,who Neville was sure would know about it.I tried contacting him through his website,but never got a reply.
    That's where the searching has sat for about 3 years,until tonight...When dad told me to have a look here and this is where I found this part of the forum about similar old race cars.
    So,is there anyone out there that can help out?
    Also dad mentioned the car was ment to be on display at the OSCA revival meeting at Ruapuna.While I was doing some research,I found out someone was going to build a replica,as the car was apparently under a tree in Timaru,still in the Raycroft colours....Which sounded a bit dubious as it hadn't been in those colours since Dave raced it.
    Restored by Nick Donaldson and being driven by him.Its back in the Raycroft livery.

    Shellsport Revival Series and Information

    Hi all, First time post, but myself and a group of guys here in the South Island are busy re-starting the Shellsport revival series, and we our plan is to start coordinating some races for new and old Shellsport cars for the next season.
    Initially in the South Island, but we hope to increase this to inter-island meetings also.

    Along with the series , I'm currently building a website which is to be sort of an online repository for everything new and old in relation to Shellsport.
    I'm also continuing to grow our database on old cars and owners. And plan to do a number of interviews so I can get the good oil on the cars and drivers for the site, I want the information to be as accurate as possible.
    I'm looking for absolutely everything relating to the series, VIDEO's , photo's, programs, results, magazine items, you name it, even if its a picture of a car in a workshop, this may help to complete part of a story in the future.

    I hope to be in contact with a number of the contributors on this thread who have posted photos to ask for their permission to be used, but would greatly appreciate any assistance people may have.

    Thankyou in advance
