Indeed, Jonsie and Brian McGuire shared a house in Chiswick, selling VW buses to the green Aussies arriving in the UK. They along with Alan McCulley (a Kiwi) travelled around in an orange converted bus as 'AIRO', sometime their mechanisc (name eludes me) would run a BT21 also.

The whole surrounding block was a sea of VWs, the 'story' was that the boys themselves had just finished a European tour and were selling their VW before returning home, they advertised on the bulletin board at Australia House

WDC-champion-to-be Alan Jones. I bet there was some fruity language.

He was a big lad even then....

Apologies if these have been posted before, but it just illustrates how lucky those of us who were growing up with this quality of motor racing in the late 60's early 70's, a golden era.

On August 9-11, at the British Columbia Historic Motor Races at Mission, BC, we will be celebrating the 60th anniversary of the opening of the Westwood track in 1959.  I found a few things on Youtube:

 

A couple of links with photos from the early Westwood days.  The first one has many photos from opening day.  But no, Pedro Rodriguez never drove a Ferrari there.

 

 

 

And video of the Players/GM race at the last weekend at Westwood in 1990.  When the winner, Spenard, is being interviewed at the end, my son Brian (age 9) is sitting on the guardrail behind him.  Brian just turned 38.  After that, I am handing the microphone to Spenard on the podium.

A documentary with voice-off in Portuguese about the Circuito da Boavista international races of 1956. You can skip the first 5 minutes, it is about Oporto city, though it is interesting to see everybody in suit and tie attending the race. Salvadori and De Portago featuring amongst the locals.

I believe that is Ken Tyrrell at the 3 minute mark. I don't know who he worked for then, Maybe Cooper?

A brilliant but mixed bag of motor sport including Redex Trial and gymkhana along with racing at Longford and Albert Park.

Longford action appears to be the Tasmanian Trophy 1955 with the Anzani Bugatti, Cisitalia and Tom Hawkes Allard all present.

Ian Tate's Prefect Special is also prominent.

A glimpse of how things were.

Oulton Park - 1971 Gold Cup

 

 Not actually the Gold Cup but the Spring Trophy held on 9 April . My first ever F1 race , and one the Barbour clad marshals at  Deer Leap was me . Weird soundtrack- certainly not DFVs and a BRM

F3 and F2 races at Rouen 1970. Brief tribute to Salomon and Dayan at the beginning. Jaussaud raced in both!

Best watched with the sound down...

Grand Prix de Paris - Montlhery 1970

F3 footage at the end. "Brillant" Bob was third.

Don't ask about the soundtrack...
