Graeme Cameron, recently has been racing in the NZ Porsche series. I note also, fom a search here, that he (presumably) raced in a Commodore back in the 1980s. Is this the same Graeme Cameron who raced a "KRB Mk6" (I believe a Titan in disguise) FF in Vancouver in 1974? Age would seem to be in the right ball park.

Same guy.
I knew him in the 1970s and met with him again fairly recently.

Thanks Tom.

I raced a Merlyn in 74/5 at Westwood. Graeme soundly thrashed me.

I think we have spoken via email about Bryan Evans, he was racing a (Royale?) FF then- must have been before he drove for you I guess.

Nice web site by the way.

Regards

Graeme Cameron has a rich racing history in New Zealand, running a Cosworth engined Fraser (Caterham) and two beautiful semi classic car called a Beattie Sports, before the Porsche, and lots before that. The First Beattie looks like an early front engined Lola (now reproduced by redline sports cars) and another had a Lotus 23 look to it. This was modernised bringing it up to a 70s Chevron look. Graeme ran Can Am Construction Company. Kevin Beattie is a very talented engineer and produces some superb cars.

Mick

Actually, Tom could add some meat AND potatoes to this thread...just had a look on pp. 276-277 of his book "Sports Car Road Racing in Western Canada"...tells about Cameron's KRB...Tom? (Or maybe just buy the book!)

Any more Westwood people "down under" now?
