Terrific shots Lindsay.
The Reynard FF83 was one of the 'game-changer' FF designs at the time- I remember seeing Tomas at Sandown early in the season and going 'wow' and off to Europe he went for a while. I always thought Elwyn Bickley's cars were great- as he was for the short time he raced. I had some problems at Wakefield Park with my Lola T342 which he helped me with yonks ago- it was a pleasure to meet with and talk to him, at that stage he was living in Goulburn, perhaps he still is? Geoff Walters pops up on FB- ill pop your photo up on my primo FB page Lindsay and see if we can point a few FF folks onto this thread. M

Thanks Mark, the brother of one of my old mates from Tassy days, Paul Macmichael (shots of him in his Fiat 1100 from Longford '65) moved to Goulburn in the early 80's for work and got to know Elwyn really well. Paul was a clever engineer too and they got on like a house on fire by all accounts. Don't know if he is still in Goulburn though.

Elwyn is still in Goulburn, about 500 metres away from me.

Few shots from random years in the history of Formula Ford, including some heroes as well as some heartbreak. Last year's Indy 500 winner is amongst them too....... don't have anything on Webber in FF though I'm afraid. Re current FF graduates, keep an eye on Liam Lawson. The young kiwi was NZ FF 1600 champ in 16/17 and just took out the TRS series - he's now a Red Bull junior and will be racing in Europe this year. 2069-R-FF-s-77.jpg2284-R-M-Amb-97-lo.jpg7447-R-Power-00-lo.jpg9756-F-Skelt-71-lo.jpg3485-R-FF-03-lo.jpg11513-R-Mez-85-lo.jpg2279-R-Dell-97-lo.jpg2283-R-Cott-97-lo.jpg

Pic 1,,, RD102 Bridgestone.

Pic 6, some familiar faces besides Glen. My brother is one.

Pic 8, a bit drafty and will not turn in,, look at the right steering arm.

Great pics are all.
