I have Hunnam as being there, but not starting in the Gold Star race due to engine maladies. My records also show Brown was in his Catalina, but Granton Harrison had his Mono in the race.
results specifically list the three as being in Monos. Of course, Harrison was further back and unlisted... and yes, Hunnam was a non-starter because of problems, whether his problems were before he left Melbourne (I think that's the case) or after arriving at Mallala isn't stated.
Another Mono owner had a Lancia V4 installed, this was a Sydney car, blue as I recall. Allan Grice has been mentioned previously, but I think he was a bit later, while I don't remember any Monos racing in Queensland. And, of course, there was Alfie.
They were very quick at Calder, undoubtedly helped by their light weight and slim build, and it's nice to see one today in the hands of our good friend (and TNF member) Brian Lear.
