Ross Anderson and Chris Royston - Lotus 47 (ex Don Hall) Wanneroo
Lemay team North Perth
L/R John Alford, Jeff Dunkerton, Terry Lemay, Kim Magill, Doug Mould
The two pics are quite an era apart ....the top one at Terrys Shell servo is the LeMay Pillarbox Red and White colour scheme ( could be even on the crossover era between Caversham and Wanneroo Park).
Car 26 is "definitely" the ex-Manton Neptune car of Jeff Dunkerton, Alfords 1100 and Moulds sports car (I'm pretty sure this was pre-sports sedan era). Indeed Briggs ran a sports Mini, not sure if it was the Doug Mould car, though. The second pic is some time later in the Yellow Shell WA colours. I'm still *fairly* sure about the Sangster/Foley link. I seem to recall a story about the one time Foley raced his Mini at Wanneroo, and the deal was that he (Sangster?) would purchase it "straight off the track" if he beat Manton on the day. He did !
I reckon it then became part of the John Harris Racing Team. I think Briggs car also was spannered by John Harris (another legend!)
More when I hear from Ross, he will confirm ...... there were so many minis and names in that era .... Ted and later his son Rick, Jeff Power etc etc ..... they were all good punters too!
