I'll have another go.....
Lindsay’s post from the ANF1 & 1/2 thread is apt to be reproduced here- Garrie’s Mono is frame #6755 - his final Mono before moving into the type 600 in early 1968.
Did both Max and Garrie win titles using these cars?

Max certainly won two titles in the Rennmax, but Garrie used the 600 in '68 to tie for the title with Max.

I am not unhappy that those full bodied sports cars like the 300 & 400s are either a tight squeeze or won’t fit at all!
Edit - Wheel & tyre refurbishment is going well

Sports Car World would also be a candidate...
I'll see if I can remember to have a look when I'm with my magazines again.

I think that's Ron talking to Ian Hobbs whilst in the form up area -
meanwhile Elmo cracks on in a Saturday morning session.

A great time was had by quite a lot of Elfins on this Mallala weekend, celebrating 60 years of the marque.
John Lemm also captured John Medley flying the Catalina flag, with Sam Nitschke doing the same for the Clubmans!

Flicking through the Jan 97 Thoroughbred & Classic Cars mag... Discovered page has this for Mr Lambert

Hardly. At the time of his death, Lex had Rocky under his wing and was making some plans for Tim Schenken.
Mel had already been racing for years, including driving the famous Tornado.

A photo from the Craig Sparks family archive recently displayed on FB.
Another photo from our family archives.
Notes on the back of the photo
Stan Keen in Elfin Mono leading Mel McEwin in a Lotus. John Walker in his Elfin Mono. The sports car looks like an Elfin 300. I am not sure about the rest.
The cars are turning from King William Road into Hindley Street in the centre of Adelaide for the premier of the movie Grand Prix circa 68 or 69.

James, this was held on the evening of Friday, December 8, 1967 at the Fair Lady Theatre, Adelaide. The SCCSA were sponsoring a preview of Grand Prix "...a procession of racing car similar to those to be seen in the film will be held in King William and Hindley Streets from about 7.30pm", Around 30 minutes before the movie was to start. Proceeds to Red Cross and the public had to wait until December 21 for general screenings to begin.
Details written in December 1967 Wheelspin.

Very cool! Is that Mr Bottenberg (spelling??) in the Lotus?
I think you mean Boddenberg. I would say not because that Lotus has a Climax engine and Boddenberg had the ex Geoghegan Lotus 32 which had a Twincam.
Is #90 Helene Bittner?
