As Connie was definitely at the 8th August 1948 meeting at Strathpine (her first event, and the first woman to compete in Qld), that pretty much confirms where this and the Warburton photo were taken. Thanks everyone.

That's two of the 25 photos place & date - done.

Ray - can you confirm the Warburton was at Strathpine on this day and then at what event did it enter for Leyburn in 1949 ?.

This is Connie "in flight" at Leyburn !.

But at 313 by 235 pixels it is a tad small for us to appreciate.....

Is this better - I went too far with Ray's suggestion

I am also torn about cropping images.

And here is the same car and driver at Strathpine 14 months earlier. She wasted no time wanting to go faster & shedding weight from the car.

The AMS report on the Strathpine 8/8/48 meeting confirms Connie being present as Tony describes, but although it does not prove anything, the report does not mention the Warburton special. So an entry list is needed to confirm that.

The only reference I would have would be those same pages...

But I think the Warburton pic is at Whites Hill anyway.
