I am currently playing with Amals, and am intrigued by some of the earlier uses in old Holdens. Des West's humpy stands out. From what I can gather, Des campaigned the car in the first ATCC in 1960. From Wikipedia:
By lap 14, McKay had a lead of 26 seconds over Pitt, while rain was beginning to fall over the circuit. Sawyer spun his car coming over the crest at Connaghans Corner, hitting the inside bank and rolling. Jack van Schaik narrowly missed Sawyer's car while Ken Miller scraped his roof on one of Sawyer's bumpers. Des West stopped to held Sawyer escape the car while the driver of a Ford Zephyr had also stopped, their car blocking the track. After helping Sawyer, West burned his hands while restarting his own car.
Bit of a long shot, but does anyone know the story behind Des West's burns? Assume he got under the hood to operate the tickler on the Amals, but could be wrong.
