Btw, I'm still not convinced re that Anson and Tiff N !!


Well Danny Boy, I left about 25 minutes after you. Trouble free run home until a bored plod stopped me for a chat!! Arrived home at 23:40.

BTW - it is TIFF NEEDELL the photo was taken on 03/10/82 at Silverstone in Rd 18 Marlboro F3 Championship. Tiff qualified 12th and finished 11th. This just about summed up the Toyota/Nicholson powered Anson SA3C.

A most enjoyable evening, chaps. and good to meet Stephen W, who promises some more historic hillclimb pics in the next quiz. How does Dan remember so much about model numbers? Must be 'cos he's young.........Pub wasn't half bad as a second string choice.

Steve, sorry the last post went straight over my head... Sorry too for the Anson/Needell doutbts, you're spot on ! I disagree though that it was a poor car against the RT3 hordes. Mike O'Brien went reasonably in the only regular UK car that year, and I don't think he was anything too special, in fact I wonder if Tiff was out in this car?

W.R.T. the post that went straight over your head: try the book/film "A Picture of Dorian Grey".

As for the Anson that you seemed so sceptical about, Mike O'Brien was in the same race at Silverstone and was equally down the order. They were certainly bulkier than the ubiquitous RT3. However if half the field had been using Ansons and they had a big budget behind them who knows what would have happened.

:cool:

No, that was Harry Miller. Dorian Grey won the 1952 Sebring 12 hours in a Fraser Nash.

There is a double header sprint at Anglesey Racing Circuit on the 11th/12th June. On the Saturday there is usually a very healthy dose of Historics with the Paul Matty Lotus challenge heading the bill.

Why not combine our next get together with the Saturday sprint meeting?

Just worked out that w/c May 31st is half-term, so may be difficult for me. Is putting it back a week, ie to w/c June 6, feasible ??

Are we definite on this then chaps, next Weds June 8, c7.30pm at the Guilden Sutton place ?

Items for discussion, apart from Steve's Quiz: the Pau festival, Le Mans, Angouleme, the continuing story of Chris Amon, will we ever get to me Pete F, Adam's March chassis lists, Reynard WhelkPots, the de Dion axle, the Rover history, and no doubt many more. It'd be good if David brought his pad and pencils too, to explain more complex matters to those of us less good in such areas...

NEVER ink anything in the diary! That way you can always adapt!

Hope the Tango merchant has a sense of humour, mind you if he's your mate Dan he'll have to have! :rotfl:

See you Weds 8th Guilden Sutton 7:30 pm or there abouts!
