The Hume Weir circuit, Australia

Ray, in your Jan 77 RCN report for the 27 December 1976 Hume Weir it has John Gourlay mentioned in the results with a Bolwell. It does state Nagari, but that might be because ithe Mk7 shown had a V8 stuffed in the engine bay. Paul Trevethan and the MG B V8 had 2 wins that day.
Gourlay was my thought as well. But my info for those days was the Fiction or RCN.

At the Sept 1975 Weir meeting there is a Ron McPherson in an "older model " Bolwell (ie Mk 7 I'm assuming) so it could be him - its certainly not a Nagari.

At the Boxing Day '75 meeting there is a driver, surname Dennis behind Trevethan - doesn't mention what he is driving though.

Ron McPherson (kerchief/bandana is the giveaway) but according to this article he sold it in 1975!
(edit) Decided to get rid of it in '75, so he may have still owned it in '76 but not sure he would race it if he had the Datto.
Yet another fine example of the achingly timeless... yada yada
