All the more reason to support the Tailem Bend project, which will host both bikes as well as cars (remember how good the combined car/bike days were at Mallala?).

While I have nothing against the Tailem Bend profect it will never be a great success as it is percieved as too far away. Yes I know it is really no further than Mallala ut from what i gather will never be a racetrack as such, just a venue for sprints etc.
AIR for all its faults, real and imagined can provide for a Far greater cross section of motorsport. Though Tailem will still be a extra venue that should still be of great use to the motorsport community.

First outing for the Tornado at Baskerville in 1966. One of the oldracephotos photographers, David Keep actually helped lay up the fiberglass body for the Tornado with JG and another guy. We also have a shot of the Falcon (XL?) sedan which provided the motor for it from earlier in 1966 - one outing only at Baskerville with JG at the helm. Just a couple of asides - the steering wheel was fashioned out of a yacht centreboard. The Lotus 32B wheels was purchased from the Sternbergs who ran the ex Clark car in Tas in 68-69. One of my first motorsport memories is a handicap race at Baskerville in 1967 which only had 2 cars start. Goss in the Tornado off scratch in the Tornado and Lyn Archer in the Elfin Catalina 1.5 pushrod. Both drivers absolutely flat stick from the start over 6 laps and less than half a car length across the line
at the finish with Goss just ahead. Great stuff from two very good drivers.

Just adding on to my last post the Lotus wheels and triple Webers etc came later in 1967. Another aside is the moulds from the Tornado were used on 4 other Tassy based sports cars - Vic Butler's Bunyip Ford, Tony Hamilton's Turnham VW and 2 of Bob Wright's Tasmas.

That's incredible... but that's TNF...

In one day, I think it must be the first time (or close to it) that the Goss Tornado has been mentioned and all of this information is divulged about it.

I never knew it ran without the body. And was the name of 'another guy' by any chance Tony Williams?

Oh yeah, I've heard of him... good old Fibre...




I am pretty sure, by the way, that Tony Williams (the late Tony Williams?) once told me he had some part in the building of that car.

Never say "never", Lee ... I suspect you don't appreciate the absolute determination of MA & MSA to pursue this project well beyond so many peoples' perception of it being "just a venue for sprints, etc". Vision (yes, and $$$) is required to see beyond what is there at the moment. What's needed is a similar commitment from the 4 wheel fraternity in SA.

Yes, travel time Adelaide to Tailem Bend is same as Adelaide to Mallala. But Tailem Bend is that much closer to the eastern states, too. That's a plus... :up:

That distance saving could well be make or break for competitors...

While I believe Tailem Bend is too flat, too plain, it's better than nowhere. And Mallala doesn't have too many mountains, anyway. Nor did Port Wakefield or AIR for that matter.

Post #1 features

Picture one was taken in 1964 (original grid placement?) - Car 4 Davidson - Brabham, Car 7 Stilwell - Cooper Buick, Car 2 Cooper - Elfin Mono

Picture two circa 1968/9 (relocated grid?) features the Elfins of Garrie Cooper and Maurice Quincey, and maybe John Walker and Ron Tonkin or Mel McEwin? (and others)






Was the overnight "in situ" Repco-Brabham V8 crankshaft change in Phil Moore's new Elfin 360 (which broke after Garrie Cooper had elbowed Phil out of the cockpit to "tune the chassis") performed by Ben Bidstrup and Dale Koennecke at the track?

Apparently Ben can tell you that they "didn't call them 360s for nothing"!!

Still miss the mini 2Bob? Was it set up pretty stiff? Did the roll over creep up on you? Plenty of negative camber at "the end"!!

So i guess the '64 shot of Garrie is in the Mono I nowlook after? I will have to make some time to take a drive and pop in one of these days. You going to the Tasman revival at eastern Creek? James

It could well be James! There are shots around somewhere of it with a pushrod motor installed as well as the Twin Cam, I'm not sure when she scored the extra couple of camshafts......

Would love to go to the Revival, but the better half might disown me..........

Ray, Lindsay White was the guy I was getting mixed up with our mate Fibre! (Must have got it mixed up with our other mate, Arnold) There was another guy involved though which could well have been Tony Williams - was he a fibreglasser? Lindsay was a draftsmen and he worked on the rough drawing which David did initially - very loosely based on the Ford GT40 apparently.

Tony was a fabricator of the first order...

He was much in demand in the touring car ranks when they were all building new or spare cars for Bathurst.

Great shots. On occasion the Sports Cars raced with the Sports Sedans so one class or the other could get a race. Bernies Bolwell was fun to race against but the smaller Clubman type cars were not. You couldnt see them! That came to an end when a Clubman got tangled up with Chris Smerdons VL GpA Tourer who was racing as a Sports Sedan.

That big wing on the Bolwell was often Jim Doigs sunvisor in Sports Car races, he spent a lot of time under it!! Until the straights and Bernie was gone until the next tight twisty bit.

Lee, the Bolwell certainly had the goods in a straight line didn't it? The corners were the only issue for Bernie. I can certainly remember Jim Doig giving him curry - been very interesting to follow the discussion of Jim on this thread - he was so quick in that car at both SA circuits. Real giant-killer.
I was freelancing out of Kevin O'Daly's Aspect Studio in Halifax St for most of my two years in Adelaide, so we got to hear all the gossip about Bernie's racing exploits - he certainly put a lot into it. Very enthusiastic guy.

Bernie certainly spent some money. He was not a bad punter though a bit hard on gearboxes and that car only had a Ford single rail in it until the end when it got a T10. The monocoque was very tight around the gearbox and a top loader would not fit.That is a K&A built monocoque chassis car.
Bernie was the man who commisioned the original Veskanda Sports Car.

The fredduece pics are Clem Smith in the Charger, Peter Whitbread in the ex Dick Clutterbuck rotary Renault. Mick monterosso in what is nominally the ex Phil Ward Escort. That car had a LOT of work after they bought it. And the final pic is Goerge Carters Irving headed Holden Datsun 1200, Jim Myhill in the FJ, Wayne Polden in the Anglia and Rob Smith in the Torana. Both the FJ and Torana were originally Colin Morris cars, Rob also owned the FJ before the Torana. And would like the Torana back!! Jim still owns the FJ.

Yes, you're right, John Walker in No 20...

Funnily, I don't remember him having a blue car, but I have a few Calder race reports where he's wearing No 20 and the car looks the same... or almost the same. And behind him is Clive Millis in his Rennmax.

The car with Nissan signage on the sidepod is Bob Jennings and pretty sure the one next to it is the Drewer car as mentioned. The car next to McLaughlin is Arthur Abrahams from memory. Peter Glover won the round.

Edit 24/10/10;
On closer examination of the pictures in this post and the program for June 1984 I have to concluded the following pics are most likely from the August 1984 meeting and not June.
The simple reason being Clem's Charger is not listed in the programme at all , nor is he in the results I have recorded. On reflection I believe these pictures are from a later event, most likely August as those meetings usually featured Sports Sedans as one of the main attractions.

Some very interesting pics there. The Torana hachback is a little different, it had a 265 hemi engine. Driven then by John Beasley. The no 4 Torana is Ken Leigh.
The pic of Virgo's Mustang has the Les March Nissan 1200 ute in the background.
The John Harding driving the Jag Ford. Is that the same John Harding who raced speedway and later HQs. Had the Rose and Crown Hotel?
The Boral Ford was originally raced by Stan Keen. And I own the original towcar!!
The No 6 F2 may be Craig Sparks.Who later raced the Richards 201. Sister Amanda races a Biante Porsche.
Reputedly Terry Parker used his dads [Murray Parker] speedway stockcar engine in that Ford Special.
The John Bryant Falcon Sprint pictured in now owned by Serge Deluca and driven very well by son Bradley.

As best as I can answer this I believe it was 1966.

Helene didn't appear in the grid line up for the ANF 1.5 litre Championship on the Queens Birthday meeting in June that year. She did however appear on the grid for the Goldstar round held later in October that year. It appears she finished a number of laps down on eventual winner John Harvey.

Can isuggest that the Historic group in form up is at Easter (year uncertain) but Black 25 is the Snape Cooper, the Nedloh of david Lowe is in there as well

Will try and add in other names I am sure of

AnnieOz thanks for the input.

The picture of the cars in the form up area is from the re-opening meeting in June 1982.

The 25 car is Graeme Slape - Cooper BMW; 24 Bruce Roberts - Lola; 81 Rob Harcourt - Lancia Meadows; 33 Laurie Cousin Triumph TR 3 ; 26 David Lowe - Nedloh;
3 Robby Nichols - Decca Special; to the far left, John Virgo's Riley 2.5 ; Red car and driver with Blue helmet, John Harding - Jag/Ford ; John Veale - Healey. car on far right I believe is Ron Lee in a MG S/C Special.

Welcome AnnieOz to this remarkable forum -- you can only lend a touch of class . Perhaps I wasnt in the photo because the Shearer family had pinched and hidden my racing car-- but only on top of the spectator mound in the fog ---- or was that another Easter at Mallala( or AIR or....)?

I agree with the Fredeuce identifications, and that John Harding raced speedway

Interesting grid arrangements, again demonstrating that Mallala requires lots of grunt and lots of brakes.

One of my favourite stories from Mallala: John Payne(MG J2/TB) passed me (Nota formula Junior)and Bill Hemming( Elfin Climax aero) in a straight line only to lose it onto the straight, slithering on opposite lock across the tar and then the grass to just kiss the left hand tyre wall before skating now on the other opposite lock back across grass, then tar then right hand grass to just kiss the righthand tyre wall then rocketing back across grass and onto the tar to proceed at undiminished speed ( meanwhile Bill and I nose to tail were on again off again the throttle never sure where the gap was going to be....). Because that part of the circuit is out of view of most, I said to John later " Only Bill, myself, you and your drycleaner know of your misdeeds, John". His reply, with a glint-eyed grin : " Ah , you know it's not wise to lift the foot, John"

I knew John quite well through my role as HQ engine sealer and never knew that he had driven circuit before, probably why he was so quick!
I saw the end of his speedway career when he tried to cut a Torana in half using the pitlane wall at AIR and did a lot of damage to himself too.

Pretty sure its a F5000 and I think I may have a shot of it myself from Mallala in 1984 as well. Can't recall what it is though - I know it isn't the Elfin 201 though as the tyres aren't as wide and the sidepods are different. The 201's nose is curved as well.

The yellow Monaro behind Clem looks like Peter Finch. Could be one of the original Develco cars built by Peter, Simon Aram and Bernie Fitzner.
I think Develco built sports sedans for John McCormack, Tony Parkinson and maybe a couple more. Lee would know more about this.

I reckon that is the Elfin 815 it was chassis MR5-5724. It's either Mike Adams or Mike Trengrove at the wheel. Its ex John Walker, Stan Keen, Peter Midleton etc. Now back in original Elfin MR5 form in the hands of Max Floreani and race by son Tony...
