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.

Robert Cobden seen in the Riley Falcon Special did well to keep his car on the road after executing a 180° spin coming out of the Pardon hairpin.

More a few more pics here.

Just testing - it would appear the switch to Google Chrome has opened up the possibility of posting photos once again!

Are they Hillclimb specials, Steve? Aren't they ugly? Looks like the 2nd one has been cut in  half then re-assembled

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.

The red "s" is really fabulous Stephen, does it have a competition history and who owns it now, it is perfect!

Not that I am aware of. Only surfaced last year.

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....

The scenery is a bit hard on the eyes!

As it seems are many UK venues.

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....
