Thanks to Erin for expressing what was in all of our hearts today. I have been thinking that it would have been an awesome 70th Birthday bash, if only Mom could have been with us to celebrate it. Hopefully she knows that we are thinking of her today (as always, but especially because it is an important birthday), and miss her tremendously.
PS: Above is a picture of Mom on one of her most significant birthdays: June 26, 1975 when she married the love of her life, Howden Ganley. Happy (34th and counting) Anniversary, Mom and Howden!

It was a gorgeous sunny day and everyone had a wonderful time! Judy was smiling down upon

In 1993 Paul Walters became the producer of Wake Up to Wogan and, together with Terry Wogan, made it one of the most popular radio programmes in
the UK. It had a regular 8 million listeners, making it the most listened to radio broadcast of any European nation. Walters became famous and a household
name by taking part in Wogan's infamous banter, acquiring the nickname "Dr Wally". Sadly, Paul died of cancer in 2006. I was fortunate to spend some time
with him at the 2004 Howden and Judy Golf Day and here are a couple of the pictures from that day - "promoting" a beverage and receiving an award...

been just as happy on the golf course.
Meanwhile Howden was enjoying the Sunbeam Alpine, or not!

I'd say he had some surplus horsepower there to play with!

Judy enjoying The Goodwood Revival with her friend Sandra. I think they would have
been just as happy on the golf course.
I LOVE the hats! No doubt they'd have rather been golfing! :-) Thanks John, for a great picture of Mom & Sandra!

At that time, 1970, March Engineering had been going for just over a year. Chris Amon was driving the
March 707 in CanAm, but Max and Robin were always on the lookout for opportunities to expand, and an
all-girl team in CanAm for 1971 would have had the potential to attract some good sponsorship. Mom's
racing career was going very well at that stage, and a jump to CanAm would have been a big boost!

The tournament raised money for the Target Ovarian Cancer Fund.
Below is a clip from the local maidenhead newspaper.

by Sue Fosburgh. Here are a couple of pics from the prize giving. In the first one Sue is celebrating by sipping red wine from the trophy –
somewhat similar to Judy toasting at Sebring in 1970 and later. See Post #55. The other pic is of Sue with the Trophy, without the beverage .

In memory of Sir Jack Brabham, whose memorial service was held last week, I felt it

Thanks for this, John; great photos, and it looks as if everyone's having a good time. I never knew Judy but have had a little contact with Howden and Erin, and they seem such a friendly bunch.
Posted 18 July 2014 - 23:09
Great photos, John! It's fun to see all those familiar faces - I so wish I could have been there!
Posted 27 July 2014 - 20:16
Judy's presence was felt at the entrance to the BRDC at the Silverstone Classic this weekend.........

Just found this wonderful photo of Judy posted by Mary Lou Robson. It originated on Tom Turner's Facebook page "Remembering the Original Laguna".
Lovely shot of Judy with the Car of the Century
Does anyone know a little more about her "sponsor" (full name?) from Vallejo?
[Edit: being so close to Sears Point, I would imagine there might be quite a few tuning/race businesses in Vallejo]

A fabulous shot of both my parents - That's my dad, Serguey Kondratieff in the left corner taking a photo. I'll check with him to see who the sponsor was. There is an Autosport mechanic shop in Vallejo now, but not sure if it's the same group or not.
