Re: THE SPRINGBOK SERIES

The Mini Marcos was a monster eater, not because of big power, but because of roadholding and reliability. If you think that these little cars went up against the might of Ford, Porsche and Ferrari at Le Mans, that is amazing. I will never forget the Mini Marcos that led the start of the nine hour a...

Re: Contacting owner?

Doug, do you have any news on the people who drove in the Wynn's racing teams during the '70's? I am particularly interested in Willie Ferguson who raced in F5000 over that time.

Re: East London GP Circuit

That is the Cooper T79 of John Love but it is not him driving it, therefore he must have already got his Brabham.

Re: Bobby Olthoff 1969 Fairlane Z177

Quite right, I remember that. It was meant to be a fantastic debut which came to nothing. We all were talking about this being the bringing back of the Galaxie days. How disappointed we were.

Re: Racing Fords......

Re: KR's Quiz 8

That looks like a Gold Star racer behind. This must be 1967?
