I'm looking for any photos of Jeff Goodliff's Minisprint if any of you chaps have any. Despite being a former multiple BARC Championship winner good clear period shots of this car seem to be few and far between. As previously mentioned I have arranged for Jeff and the car to be at Shelsley Classic Nostalgia on July 28th, the car fired up for the first time after 25 years in storage only recently.

Any help gratefully appreciated.

Ah but Stuart they will be in 20 years time so I am just putting down a marker.

Both the Pilbeam and the Empire Wraith are newly designed hillclimb cars specifically for the discipline. The Wraith was designed by Willem Toet and the Pilbeam by Mike.

Reminds me of another well-known red/white S, once in those parts, that claimed a very significant competition history. Problem was discovering which parts of it actually had that history....

I've not read all this thread...Barbon is the one venue I've regularly attended, 1st time in '68 [I was a 14 year old at boarding school [grammar school with some boarders (boys and girls), not a public school] down the road at Kirkby Lonsdale...it took a hell of a lot of persuading to get the housemaster to allow me out for the day to visit Barbon rather than do whatever we did on a Sat].

I think I have some old slides somewhere taken by an ancient Instamatic, plus old programs etc. 

 

There was a far bigger range of vehicles competing then than nowadays. The names [I can't see the photos] on the original posts on this thread brought back memories. I remember Nicky Porter in his Mini.....I still see Nicky today, he's at West Auckland [co Durham] not far from my Dad's and he competes on historic rallies in a Merc or Cortina. He still has that Mini [Downton tuned], his 21st birthday present from his parents!!. His son Julian is involved with interviewing on WRC rallies.

 

I remember Jeff Goodliffe's Minisprint....just used 1st & 2nd gear I believe [according to something I read, maybe in Hot Car?].

And Sir Nick Williamson & David Good in their F5000 McLaren M10Bs in 1970, David winning on that occasion....Is David still with us? I know Sir Nick isn't....

 

Lack of sponsorship / entries at Barbon over recent years has meant that a few features.....speed trap on the straight just before braking for the hairpin, giant TV screen at the hairpin etc have gone by the wayside.

 

The day after Barbon, Morecambe CC used to run the Leighton Hall Hill Climb [Leighton Hall being a few miles north of Carnforth] but that was last run in 1969, the course being too short. 

Apart from being used as a special test venue on early 90s Classic Illuminations Rallies, it has not been used for any motorsport activities...until next month, when a bike sprint will be held on Sun 28th Sept, over a 200 metre course [less than half the original]. Though not into bikes, I may pop along to see if it brings back memories....

What a coincidence, Phil. Barbon was a regular haunt for me at around the same time that you were going. I, too, was at boarding school in the near vicinity and founded a school car club, the principal activities of which were arranging film shows with films from the Castrol and Shell film libraries, and an annual trip to Barbon. Great days, I seem to recall. 

The earliest photographs which I posted on this thread have long since disappeared, but I have reloaded some of them, so if you go back to the very first post on this thread, you should see them there once again (for how long, I don't know), and they feature some of the names you have mentioned, e.g. Nicky Porter, Jeff Goodliff. Enjoy them while they last!

Alan,

What a coincidence ! When I was at boarding school in Rutland in the 1960s I , too, set up a School Motoring Club, the sole objects of which were the same as yours with the variant that I had to persuade the one interested master to transport 8 of us to Mallory Park in the school Dormobile ...  and saw a few memorable meetings there. The Shell/Castrol films were good, too.

Nick

Many Thanks Alan, your photos brought back a lot of memories :drunk:

Was school was Sedbergh?....mine was QES at KL, I was there 65 - 72.

 

The 71 Barbon....the winner....David Hepworth was commuting between Barbon & Silverstone, where he was competing in an Interseries race with his BRM [?] Can Am car the same weekend.

The 72 Barbon...just before my A Levels.....the winner was Sir Nick Williamson in a Marlyn[?]...basically a converted March F2.

 

Away from hillclimbing......from some of the upper story classrooms at school, you could see the traffic on A65....this was quite handy when the 71 RAC Rally came past en route from Grizedale to Yorkshire....geography teacher asked me why I kept looking out of the window, I replied I needed to see the rally cars.....I still have an image of Chris Sclater going past.....

 

A few hundred yards along the A65, towards Kendal, was / is [as it's still there] a petrol station / garage, Kirkby Motors...used to be run by rally driver Pete Kirk, so was often used as a petrol stop on night rallies. This was true on the 72 Seven Dales Rally, opening round of that year's BRC. I sneaked out of the boarding house at night to go and watch for an hour or two. That was the year that Roger Clark / Tony Mason won, some 9 months before they triumphed on that year's RAC. The rally was a mixture of stages and a night road rally. Years later I heard from Tony that Roger had commented how great it was that the organizers had managed to close the roads, he hadn't realised they weren't but had driven as though they were.... :drunk:

I was over at Barbon in June I think for the Club meeting; the timing and speed screen were alive and well as I watched them from the top hairpin. To be frank it is a very average hill, short and emphatically a power venue . But so what- I love the drive over from Thirsk in the Seven  via Wensleydale and Ribblehead and the views from the hill and the whole ambience are wonderful in a timeless sort of way. I expect to see Basil Davenport and George Tatham chatting in the cow patted paddock.

 

Lots of memories of that era as I marshalled at Harewood from 69 to 74- always on the start line. Goodliff's Vita Min , Jack Maurice's 250 LM , Spotty Smith's Tuscan and John McCartney's BRM P153- a broad church was speed hillclimbing back then . Very different now- far more big(and small)  banger single seaters but far fewer saloons and sports cars. All doing track days and pretending they're racing drivers...(Have done it myself so I can talk )

John, I might not have communicated this very well regarding the timing and speed screen......yes they are there, by the finish line at the top, probably at all the meetings. What I was referring to was 1) another pair of timing beams just before the armco for the hairpin / breaking zone, which was the speed trap....there used to be another screen there displaying the speed between them. I think 135mph was the highest I remember, can't remember who but I think went straight on at the hairpin, carrying too much speed!!      2) on the level area behind the armco to the left of the hairpin, they used to have a truck with a huge TV screen so people at the top could watch the start which is just out of sight. Hope this clarifies what I meant...

Isn't it great to see that there are still some places where a piece of blue rope suspended between iron stakes is all that is needed to stop spectators from invading the course during a speed event?

I only saw the trucks with the huge screens once in 2005 (photos below). As for the speed trap display we are talking about the Alan Smith arrangement where there was a clock ticking away with a smaller separate display on top that gave the speed through the trap.

True but the meetings I attend at Barbon and Harewood (missed last one - touring Scotland )get far more spectators than the typical meeting at Croft or Cadwell; and as you say the weather has been just horrendous at many Barbons this century . But on the right day it epitomises what motor sport should be about with an eclectic crowd , fascinating machines in the paddock and public car park- just like Goodwood should be instead of the panto cash cow it has become. Suggest a TNF chat over a drink at next Spring's National Barbon ?

For 2015 there have been a couple of significant changes in the calendar. The May meeting is now going to be the National B Clubbie. The June meeting has been moved and will now be in July to link up with Harewood. Thus the dates are:

 

Barbon Manor - 9th May - National B Clubbie: 4th July - National A British Hillclimb Championship.

Harewood - 9th and 10th May National A British Hillclimb Championship; 4th July National B Clubbie; 5th July - National A British Hillclimb Championship.

The date change for Barbon may be a hope for better weather rather than risk having it rained off yet again ):

 

I'm up for a TNF meetup & drink when the time comes.... :drunk:

It is all about trying to fit in with the British Hillclimb Championship as the co-ordinator tries to spread events more evenly throughout the season. Hopefully we can attract a good entry for the May clubbie although when it has been run in June it usually gets good weather and a pretty healthy entry list.
