It might surprise you to known, 275, that even non-Australians are interested in these cars but can't be expected to know everything they're looking at.
Shouting otherwise, D-Type makes a fair point

Absolutely right, David. The postings particularly by Ken Devine and Terry Walker, inter alia plus their comments/commentaries, plus the details supplied by Ray and John etc open up a whole new world and era for many of us. Similarly with threads such as the Jerry Entin postings from the other continent, which generate their own extra information, we discover more new areas. Details become important. More power to all of them. The same applies to other regions, all good stuff.

Hmmmmmmmm I was guessing you were referring to the difficulty of replacing the wheels when they brake up, assuming he is going to race it that is.
I did see this car at Winton and thought it an excellent project. That Jag engine should drag it down the straits quite nicely. I look forward to sharing a grid with it one day.

Actually, I was referring to the willingness these early 403 wheel centres show to breaking...

It would seem the car has been built with a 203 or 403 front suspension, very popular on Specials of the fifties.

I think that the guy that designed so many Reynards might have some idea of metal fatigue. That's Mal Oastler's new car, isn't it?

Might they be Renault 12 or 16 wheels? I'm no expert, admittedly.

So it seems...

Trust me, they are Peugeot 403 wheels. And they'll be bolted up there because he's used a 403 or 203 front end. I have no idea if it's Malcolm, of course, there are no descriptions. But we've trodden that path.

Which will presumably make it eligible under Autralian rules as a period special, built whenever but from parts which were pertinent in the qualifying period, as with the VSCC here in the UK, as we have discussed before.

Note to self:

NEVER question Ray on things Peugeot.

Mr Bell, sir, I bow to your far greater knowledge. I saw three studs and thought 'Renault' - you looked at the whole front end and got the right answer.

It looks a bit like Mark Oastler at the wheel, so I'm going to stick with Mal, 'cause I remember they look alike (being brothers and all).

Hope the wheels don't break. Might they be a later pressing or a strengthened version? It'd be a shame to see that craftsmanship damaged.

Having missed only two (2006/7) out of the last twelve years, I shall be there this September, Mike. Willie Green is responsible for co-ordinating the British entries this year but, once again, it will clash with the Revival.

I've been there several times in the last few years. It has suffered from the (totally incorrect) reputation as a demonstration event, rather than a race meeting. Nothing could be further from the truth. It's a great event, and one which could easily be made spouse-friendly, if incorporated with some of the other delights of the area.

This clip sums it up quite nicely (although there are some rather un-historic tyres on view).

Ian Scheckters March at a 2002 revival meet at Roy Hesketh. Ian was there as well but I never got a clear view to take a shot of him. He was kind of the star attraction and in those pre-digicam days one didn't shoot off endless shots hoping one might come out :smoking:

The MG is not a twin cam - they had knock off wheels (not bolt ons) and I think from the concave grill this one is an MGA Mk11.

Number '5' is a Daimler SP250 (or Dart as it was originally called).

Not sure about the last one but think it is Mini based Unipower GT.

And Pist-N-Broke - shouldn't you be working - like I should be?

Not sure if this a "Festival" but it seemed like it at the time.

I've spent the last 2 - 3 weeks (escaping work, computers and the Internet) on holiday in Northern France and whilst trying to find a place to park in the seaside town of Etretat I came across this lot!

It appears I stumbled across the Côte d'Etretat Bénouville Hillclimb and the Concours d'Elegance was being held in the car park outside the town hall. Most cars had already gone, a Bentley and MG were leaving as I arrived, but there was still a few of interest. Many cars were British and are possibly quite well known on here.

I found the entry list online so have put some names to most of the cars. http://asacote.free.fr

The Lotus 11's of Simon Braithwaite and John Gray.

Posted Image

The Riley of Stephen White
Posted Image

Ron Parkers Healey Silverstone
Posted Image

I recognise this but have no info on it. I particularly like the use of the headlight deflector. Stick it on and hope for the best!
Posted Image

Other more modern cars on show were this Simca
Posted Image

and this Mallock of Ian Davies
Posted Image

As this was the centre of town the cars had to be driven back to the hill climb. The sight of a Mallock on slicks trundling out of town seemed a bit bizarre for an Anglofile like me!

I wish they did it like that here.

Time to dust off a few grainy images from the last century..
Again not really a festival, but the VSCC's June Silverstone (when they still had such things) in 1999 when it was time for another all-ERA race, and an excuse for all (but one - R8C) of the surviving cars to assemble.

It was impossible to get the whole line-up in one shot, so here they are in three bites:
Posted Image
R-L: White Riley, R1A, R2A, R3A, R4A, R1B, R3B, R4D, R5B, R6B, R7B
Posted Image
Same as above, but in reverse
Posted Image
R-L: R9B, R10B, R11B, R12B, R12C, R14B, GP1 and GP2 and just out of shot, AJM1
Posted Image
R14B, R12C, R12B, R11B
Posted Image
E Types GP2 and GP1
Posted Image
R2A and R1A
Posted Image
A midfield dice between R4A, AJM1, R6B, R2A and GP2
Posted Image
'Whizzo' Williams in R3A and Nick Mason, R10B

In his first race with an ERA, Martin Stretton started from the back of the grid with Michael Steele's R4D and came through to win from Ludovic Lindsay in R5B 'Remus'.
