Charlie Mitchell has restored the Elfin but i think it may still be waiting for the engine which was supposed to be fitted for the Tasman revival, the car was on display in the main marquee without the engine, i have posted a photo elsewhere showing Frank Matich and Charlie inspecting the car.

John Medley & Michael Shearer: the high wheeled Ford A was not enjoying the damp track.

The Vee is Don Grievson, a well known name from the past. I spoke too him briefly Sunday and he seemed quite enthusiastic.

I will have to tell Graham, though I think he lurks on here sometimes.

Do we know anything more about this gorgeous device....Eastern States car? where can I see used in anger? :love:

Read the last 2 pages of the thread Mick, both the early Lola 5000s have had a fair mention.

Great shots guys. Finally stopped for a breath after Easter. I enjoyed the racing from my vantage point, but have really enjoyed the photo graphs shared here. Just a little brag though. Dad had been trying to win the DG Fraser trophy forever, and we are proud to say Michael brought it home. Not too often I'm lost for words at the mike but this was one of those times.

Does anyone have pics of the amazing tribute to Glen Dix or have I missed a very deserved thread on the forum

Cheers
Annie

Anne, I took some pics of Glen. BUT I did it with my phone [left my camera home Saturday] and I have to get someone to help me get them out of it!! I will try though I feel some others from this forum may have taken some too.

And congrats to Michael and the extended Shearer clan.

I sincerely hope that it's not a "One Owner"! Okay, John crashed it at Phillip Island but he gifted the car to us when he had it re-built and we owe him a lot! This is a very special car and to be able to say that you have driven it in anger, that's something special! Thank you John, it's really nice to see this Lola back on the track. I hope that one day we may see the ex- Trengove Lola T332 re-built again. I must admit that I saw the end of F5000 coming before many but I still admired anyone that could control these beasts! Ken Smith must be the master.
