This could perhaps be the last chance to get the final missing pieces of the jigsaw so that I can produce the fullest account of the MN seasons 1965 thru 1969 for my new book Memory Lanes ...the early years. Hopefully the book will be out in October.

All 70+ rallies are documented and on my PC and therefore I have been able to do a definitive audit as to what I have and what I do not have.

The outstanding list of missing paperwork is now as follows:

(Lists = any entry, starter or results list, Cover = the printed cover from the Regs, Supplementary regs or results)

1966

Lists from:
Welsh Marches
Cavendish
Bristowe
White Horse
Covers from:
Bernie
Bristowe

1967

Lists from:
Red Hackle
Stocktonian (crews 107 - 141 or full results)
Bolton
Morecombe
Vales
White Horse
Illuminations
MiniMiglia
Covers from:
Red Hackle

1968

Lists from:
Vales"



+++++++ PhotographsPhotographsPhotographs!!!!


If anybody as ANY of these I would love to have a copy. A scan sent to memorylanes@live.com would be great or else PM me for alternatives.

Thanks everybody for their help so far.

I've checked my 1966 Motoring News and have reports of all the events you asked about. They don't include entry lists or full results, only the top 10 or 15.

The report of the Isle of Wight Rally, round 13 of the championship, does list the top four on each stage.

Is any of this information of use to you?

Sorry to be so rude as to not respond - this is the first time I have looked back on this forum, assuming I would receive an email.

 

Pretty well all the content is now fixed for the book, with most of the above items "missing".  Have now managed to put together a pretty decent selection of photographs and the book should be completed next month.  However not sure wether it will be released this side of Christmas or not.  All details will appear shortly on www.photohistoric.com once its much needed update is completed.

 

With regards to IOW I in fact had some original info on this as I was  marshalling one of the years and navigating the Course car the next with the late Jock Russell.

One question. Is it still intended to eventually cover the "even earlier" years, as I think you once mentioned?
