Advance apologies in case this request is too mundane in such exhaulted company....
Seeking information on the crash at Gnoo Blas late 1959 or 1960 of MG Special driven by Mr. Warren Grace of Newcastle. The car is the ex-Cobden/McKay 'Red Cigar'.
It was painted blue at this time, running comp. number '43'
Any information, particularly photographs, greatfully received

Are you sure it was Grace?

Maybe Gracie?

I can confirm that the correct spelling is Grace.

I am surprised that your question has not attracted a number of replies.
I always had the idea that the incident took place at Mount Druitt - but
you should know. I have been through the AMS reports for the meetings
at Gnoo Blas during 1959 and 1960 and have found no reference to the
incident. Have you spoken to Doug Kelley who was a friend of "Wok"
...... or Judy?

PS - Just checked - Mount Druitt was just a memory in 1959 so Gnoo Blas
is most likely correct.
