I couldn't help but note the Ferrari-esque configuration of the steering wheel.

Yes Greg.  I think he built 5 of them.   4 genuine ones and one from a Jay Bee.  Rob passed away about 6 years ago.

I should have known that Pat was in his Nota, wasn't he always?

Rob's Robin's got pretty serious when his son was driving them... the budget increased substantially.

Ray, with Robs Robins, Keith McClelland drove it very succsessfully for a number years. VW Golf engine and pretty much unbeatable.

 

And dad has two Nota's.  His old red one and ironically a 67 model that was built by rob medcalf when he lived in Dubbo.  

 

Sorry for hijacking the Vee thread guys.

Seems you've met my Lamco before Greg ...do you have any memories (or photos) of Mark Wilson at Amaroo in 1981
his race number at this time was #41 and colour blue, probably the Ford colour "Deep Aqua"
