It was me who actually said it was Tom Naughton...

But I wasn't sure. Lynton discussed the nose after I responded about nose shapes to Bob's suggestion it might be Noel Devine.

Did Tom have Renault loyalties?.....I can't think why you'd want your car painted that colour.

Yes, the Hyams car was the Frank Gardner car...

But it never looked 'right' when Hyams had it. It went through a couple of paint schemes too.

Sadly, Russell is no longer with us - he succumbed to cancer in 2002 at the tragically early age of 43. TNF's Simon Arron was one of those who paid tribute to him here:

Thanks 275 GTB, my third car ( after a Wolseley 6/90 and Morris Major )  was a 1966 mkI 1275 Cooper S. I`m about 4 inches shorter than you and had no problems in the Mini (after I put 2 inch extensions to move the seat back). If I had known what they are worth now I would still have it. I even had room to sleep across the back seat at most of the race circuits along the east coast.  Maybe that`s why my 70 year old back complains getting in and out of the old Magna.

Magic photos Dick. You mightn't agree now being punished with a sore back, but your roughing it in the back of the MkI S meant more to spend on film. If you had stayed in motels then there would be none of these great photos. So thanks.

Thanks Tim, sorry to hear/read that...looks like he was well respected...I only recall seeing him in the Mini Years TV show (which was a hoot, watched it again today) and had no idea of his connection with F1 etc

Looking at this again has jogged my memory. Looks like a car that Ted Proctor built in the'70s. Don't remember much about it, other than when I saw it in Ted's shed, I thought it looked quite smart.

It is Brian Bode who is the only person that had a Mk4 Bowell in Wollongong. Unfortunately Brian was killed in a Ultralight plane crash many years ago out west.

I wonder what happened to the Ted Proctor car that I was thinking of ? Pretty sure it had an Alfa Romeo engine, canted over to one side, and dry-sumped.

That came after the Manx Daimler, didn't it?

And didn't the Manx Daimler become the Manx Rover in Terry Gallery's hands?

Bryan Miller might know...

The black EH seems to be a Port supporter 40 years early! Actually very distinctive. And the twin pipe bum down stance is still the way to make those cars go quick even now.

Alan Heath used the teal stripes over his GpN Falcon Sprint in the late 90s.

Actually black was a very uncommon color on EHs,usually Govt fleets.  That chocolate brown too was not common.

Martin Chenery, I have no doubt whatever, had never heard of 'Port' to support them...

And I guess it's possible the brown one was the cheaper car in the used car lot.

Stan Starcevich's EH was black.

All the EH Silver Top Taxis in Hobart were black (with a silver top of course - looked pretty smart too). Lucky this shot also features possibly the only Falcon GT taxi in Oz.....2579-H-GTFa-68-lo_1.jpg

Were these not identified two years ago?

Pic 1: Kevin Wolfe (Honda), Ken Ward (Morgan), Kevin Cafe (Midget), Bob Jane (Elfin 400), Mike Nedelko (Super 7 sans rear guard) and either Rob Worboys or Frank Walters in the Volante Ford.

Pic 2: Dave Price (ex-Brian Muir S4).

Pic 3: I think the Elfin Streamliner might be Don Stewart, the Honda S800 is Ken Brian.

Pic 6: The Blitz that was driven by the kid.

The Clubmans: Bob Rollinghoff's Nota BMC leads.

 Pic 3;  I believe the Elfin Streamliner is David Moline.  Don Stewart had a Peugeot powered Buchanan bodied sports car which was not nearly as pretty as the Elfin although the guard extensions on Dave's car did spoil the original lines a little!!

Paul, the race report for the September meeting puts Stewart into an Elfin...

However, in the main race Ken Brian and David Moline were both starters so I readily accept your identification. I well remember what a load of junk the Stewart Peugeot looked like.

Apart from that, it does appear to be in Ian Hindmarsh Motors colours.

Actually I'm glad Jeff posted these as I still don't know who is driving the FE No 85. Any clues anyone? What colour was Bob Rollinghoff's Nota before it was white Ray? I know no 21 is Alex Macarthur and the Lotus & at rear is Stan Pinkerton - any clues re the car behind Alex - could be No45 or 65 - bit hard to make out.

John, I think you're right...

I don't know how, but I looked at the pic thinking Rollinghoff and dismissed the idea several times knowing it had to be a Lotus. But I still wrote that!

Might it be Rollinghoff behind Macarthur? That definitely looks very Nota, but it could be someone else. This appears to be the September 24 meeting while the pic of Dave Price is from earlier in the year, this race saw Macarthur and Adams off the rear of the grid and at this point Macarthur is up to second and Adams must be right behind Pinkerton ('who was flying in a car that is still new to him')and about to pass him before the start/finish line. Macarthur followed up by losing it in CC to upset the applecart again, Adams made it to second and finished 5.3 seconds behind Angliss with Pinkerton a further 5.5 seconds away with the field somewhat scattered by Macarthur's indiscretion. Rollinghoff, by the way, beat Tuxford.

And Bob's Nota was a maroon colour, wasn't it?

What meeting do you make this, Dale?

The EH shows all the same pointers on it as does the Price car in the pics from the July 2 meeting, I don't think Murray gets a mention anywhere there. Colour, wheel colour and tyre size, number roundels, it's all the same. But the number can't be read.

Murray is mentioned at the September meeting, where he rolled.

Bruce Murray is listed as #6 at the September 1966 meeting.Dave Price is not listed for the September 1966 meeting. At the July 1967 meeting Bruce Murray is listed as #16. As you would know, when the promoter can't give you your requested number they give you something close  eg: turn the six into sixteen. Dave Price is listed as #69 at this same meeting. (July '67) So, different cars.

Dale.

Thanks to everyone for their input - very much appreciated. Here are another couple I'm unsure of. Who is behind Stan Pinkerton - Bob Rollinghoff?. Don't know either of the cars/drivers in the 2nd shot.8254_P_Club_67-lo.jpg8256_P_Club_67-lo.jpg

The car behind Stan Pinkerton's yellow Lotus in today's pic and in front of SP's Lotus behind Doug Macarthur further above is Bob Rollinghoff's Nota, the front swing axles of which continue to do sterling service 48 years on in my Nota Formula Junior.... and I lunched last week with Geoff Parker who owned SP's Lotus after SP

Alex Burnham seemed to me a bit of a loner, he had some ideas others wouldn't have...

I believe he told me he built three of these cars, progressively improving them. It was BMC powered, quite small,dismantled and, I suspect, never saw the light of day again.

Perhaps he advertised the chassis in RCN some time in the mid to late seventies.

Does anyone know if the EH's of Tony Patch, Martin Chenery and Graham Ryan have survived? :confused:

 

Tony had his car for sale circa 1970 as I almost bought it but can't remember seeing it again.

He is missed by many who acknowledge his skills as a driver, engineer and constructor.
