Does anyone have entry lists for the races held on Muriwai beach for the New Zealand Motor Cup Races between 1925 and 1928? It would help in dating photos to know what race numbers were used on which cars in which year. Some remarkable cars appeared there. In addition to the two TT Sunbeams (1914 and 1922) there was an ex-Indianapolis Stutz, a Miller and a Thomas Special.

Oliver, I have descriptions, by David McKinney, of both races including the entry.  The entry is in narrative, not list, form and doesn't contain race numbers.  There are also some photographs.  Send me an email address if you think this would be useful.
