Alan, was that Paul Samuels' 15 behind them or Don Shead's car? Or have I got it wrong ?

Your first guess is correct, Roger.

Hi Roger,

The car is a 1953 MM Special built in Melbourne by Lou Molina, Silvio Massola and Brian Burnett. It was put together using bits from an HRG and powered by a six cylinder ‘Grey’ Holden motor.

Cheers

Paul

Alan; lovely set of photos; if ever a circuit were less suited to Indy roadster, Oulton would have to be it. Apart from Cadwell. Or Longridge.

Thank you for your kind comment, Pete. And remember that these historic roadsters have only two gears - one for "start" and one for "go"!

The Sandown Historic racing event took place this past weekend and a diverse range of cars from the past many decades were on (high speed) display.

My images of the event are posted at the following link for anyone who'd like to have a look: Sandown Historic event images 2009

enjoy!

Great pics. But what are those Biante cars doing there? They are just modern hotrods, not historic at all except the silouhettes [and some of the drivers]

Thanks Lee

I'm no expert on what's under the skin of them, but they look like historics, they sound like historics and they handle like they surely did in their era! They didn't seem at all out of place at Sandown and, if anything, the racing among some of these guys, was as intense as anything I saw there.

It was the first time I've seen these cars in the flesh and they were exciting to watch and photograph. The highlight was watching Gavin Bullas on the limit, fighting off the contant onslaught from Jim Richards, whose well honed experience makes one realize that his age is barely a limitation - if at all. Clearly he doesn't think so and his performances in other cars against much younger talent pretty much confirms this. Watching these two racing each other flat chat, without respite or any ugliness - at least from where I was watching - the word that kept coming to mind was 'respect'!

Take care
Peter

Their racing is good, and quite clean. It is just that the cars are about as historic as an 90s Nascar. It is that style of mechanicals that they are using for the most part. Plus it is another 'franchise' type deal that makes it a rich boys racing division.

FWIW there is some excellent in-car footage with NF in the DB3S Coupe in the original video for the inaugural Christies', later Coys, Silverstone meeting around that same time. Mixing it with the class of the field it shows the superior handling of that car, but the distinct lack of power. NF's driving prowess is without doubt.

Roger - is that the car John raced at Dubai in 1981? If so I have some great footage of him battling with Dad in the Lola T70.


Gregor, my M1C was at that event - Dubai Grand Prix - December 4th 1981 according to the history files. My car was owned by Malcolm Clubbe at the time but it is not clear who drove mine at the Dubai event. It may be that there were 2 M1Cs - Clubbe and another for Foulston/Brindley. Or Foulston/Brindley drove mine as Foulston did drive it at another point in it's history. Unfortunately there are no results from that event. Perhaps if you have results we would be able to determine exactly. Of course it would be great to add these to the files and also to see the footage at some point.

Best regards,

Roger

by Malcolm Clubbe at the time


Which reminds me that I bumped into the irrespressible Malcolm at the Festival of Speed, still with his customary greeting. "Dear boy, do I owe you money?" Still the marvellous larger-than-life character, still wearing odd socks, one red, one green, from memory. We reminisced about his pioneering bunjee jump from the top of a very tall crane at Thruxton in '84 at a Modena Eng. Ferrari track day. The first one did not work so well so he did another, straight after lunch..........Sadly I have mislaid the photographs.

Having scanned these two pics for another purpose, I thought I may as well post them here, as there hasn't been much mention recently of Angouleme on TNF

One of the delights of French 'old car' events is the way that the gendarmerie turn a blind eye to the lack of mudguards on pre-war cars. A group of Bugattis assemble outside the Hotel du Palais before setting off on the Saturday rally

Is he well Roger? We got to know Malcolm in the thundersports days and the British Heart foundation annual event in Nov each year at Snetterton at north London motor trade premises. Especially mid 80s -90

There was a period when whatever event you went to, be it a race Meeting a historic rally, a classic or racing car auction or event just at other peoples premises you would bump in to Malcolm, he was everywhere, lovely bloke full of fun and humour often on a big motorcycle often I think a Ducati.He once said to me he was off to put a unique 1920s aero engined Rolls Royce in to the sultan of Brunei for " Half a Bar " A hat with a foxes tail and the fluorescent socks ! Hope he is well.

Hi Roger

I compiled the history folder of your M1C when Graham owned it, I am fairly sure that Malcolm drove that car himself at Dubai. The M1 that Brindley drove in the same race was not the Clube car.

I know complete histories for both your M1's, so contact me if you need any help with them. I could probably do a folder for your M1B similar in size to the one you have for the Clube car ! Check out my website w w w autotuneuk dot com.

Thank you, Phil. One of the many delights of Angouleme is the (virtually) unchanged scenery since the first event in 1939

I have a plea.

Does anyone have pictures from the HSCC Failsafe Historic GT races at Silverstone 8 Apr 1985 or Brands 9 Jun 1985?

I've been corresponding with Ray Bellm about his Chevron B19s and I'm trying to get a picture of his car from those two races. Ray tells me it was in red/white/green colours and had Waspeze logos. I don't need a very good quality picture - just anything that will show me what it looked like.

Thanks
Allen

Allen, I may have photos of this car from HSCC Brands 1985. But they're in storage and it might be a week or two before I can scan them.

Bellm won another race that day in a Williams FW08, in the wet, I remember.

He is in great form - probably the funniest man in motorsport. Along with Bondini a great character although a tad more reliable... two great members of Dad's Army

At the time I always wondered how much power was lost by not using an air-box (presumably the rules prevented it?). Say that car is doing 150 mph, just imagine the suction effect trying to extract air from those stacks vs. the air being dragged in by the pistons.
Thanks for posting these photos. Any more?

Well Jim Hall used partially an air-box on his Chaparral 2G, Bob Nagel had one on his Lola T260 in '72 and I think the Ferrari 712 had one too. So that looks like it was allowed.
But you're right. Why did nobody else do it?
