The reason for my Hawthorne request was a little brush up for my data on NZers racing in the European F2 Champions, 1967-1984: I have counted eight - Amon, Hawthorne, Hulme, Lawrence, McLaren, McRae, Nicholson, Thackwell - is that correct?

In case, I'm missing two more full names: What about John Nicholson and Graeme Lawrence?

And for Graeme, a question about his family background: Doug was his father, wasn`t he? (I seem to remember to have read this in Sandy Myhre`s book on 50 years of NZ racing, but I'm not sure, and the book is not at hand!)

Again, many thanks in advance! :)

Lawrence did F2 for the Chequred Flag, Nicholson was involved in F Atlantic, but may have done the odd F2.
You might find that Hull, Stone and McCully did some F2.

Doug is his dad - 90 plus. He was with GL and his bros/sons at E.Creek for the Tasman Revival.

I remember that Creg Bredlove, who was visiting France in 68 and meet me, speak of is cusin Graeme Lawrence, who come in Europe and race a Mac Laren M4A for the Chequered Flag, with Robin Widdows.
