Allan had competed in the Pukekohe 6 hour endurance races on occasion, driving his very modified red Toyota Corolla.
I'm looking for information on one race in particular, where he finished second to a Porsche. I think this must have been in the very late 90's and or early 2000's?
I think the race could have had some rain that favored the Corolla?
I also believe the third car home to be a Holden?
It would be great if there are photographs available from this race.

Seems to be a glitch with the forum software. Whenever someone puts a comma in their thread title, everything from the comma onward is dropped. The only way to see it is in the colored bar immediately above the first post.

So if someone continues to name threads, "Research, xyz" and "Research, Bill Smith" etc, there'll be a bunch of threads showing up in the list as simply "Research" and they have to be opened to find out what or who they're about?

I guess the answer is to entitle the threads, "Allan Drinkrow" etc...
