All, I have received this email from Dennis Brown - if there is anyone who would be interested, you can PM me and I'll put them or you in touch with Dennis. I figure that although I know some people who'll be interested - people like Ray and the like will be able to get a wider response:
I am organising a Celebrity dinner in conjunction with the 2015 Historic Leyburn Sprints http://www.leyburnmotorsprints.com.au/ and this year is a tribute to Sir Jack Brabham. As part of this tribute we would love to get a few Brabham cars and we are willing to pay.
We have invited a number of celebrities including the Brabhams, Steve Padget and following is an email sent to those named in it.
The Leyburn sprints are held every year to commemorate the staging of the first Australian Grand Prix in Queensland at Leyburn in 1949. 2015 is the 20th year of the Sprints and the event them is a Tribute to Sir Jack Brabham who competed at Leyburn and we intend to hold a dinner, the MC will be Will Hagon at Leyburn but if the logistics get to difficult due to very small size of the community we may have to hold it at Warwick or Toowoomba. We would like you Tim and Bragitta Schenken (confirmed subject to classes of dates) to attend as one of our celebrity guest who we hope will include some of the following, Fred Gibson (confirmed), Dick Johnson, Marcos Ambrose, Kevin Bartlett (confirmed), Colin Bond (confirmed), Vern Schuppan, John Harvey, Jim Bertram (confirmed), John Bowe, Jim Richards, Ross Stone (confirmed), Johnathan Webb, Shane Van Gisbergen, Vern Schuppan’s.
John French will be attending as usual and he will be having a drive. We are more than happy to provide you with a car to drive if you like but if you don’t want to that’s up to you. We will pay your travel, accommodation at Warwick, meals etc so it should be at no cost to yourself and if you want to stay longer just let us know. Talk to Frenchy it’s all about a low key fun weekend. Have a look at our web site for info on the event http://www.leyburnmotorsprints.com.au/
If you could put me in touch with any car owners or drivers of Brabhams we would very much appreciate it. Thanks
