Bob Williamson's facebook page has been unearthing some interesting photos and has found many names from around here posting there. So maybe TNF needs to have a presence on Facebook to generate some new blood or even hang on to those already here.
Not a lot has been said about Toowoomba's Middle Ridge circuit, there was a piece on the shortlived circuit in Australian Muscle Car mag issue 63 about 5 1/2 years ago, but these have popped up on Bob's site. Posted by Quentin Miles, with his dad snapping them all those years ago.
As far as I'm aware there was only 2 meetings, both run in September of 1960 & 61 as part of Toowoomba's Carnival of Flowers Festival
This is the first Falcon ever to race in Australia by the local Ford dealer, Edsel Falconer.
Looks like Arnold Glass Cooper Maserati hunting down Glyn Scott's Cooper, with Chas Whatmore Lotus, Tony Basile Porsche, maybe even the Erbs Prefect special that was subject here some time ago amongst this little group.
If the above photo can be proven to be the September 1960 meeting like the Falcon photo , then that would possibly make this the debut of the ex Gilby Cooper-Maserati in Arnold's hands. If it's 1961 then it's when Arnold and Denis Geary struck a deal for the later to take over that car, with the former having moved (and already wrecked) the BRM.
