Re: Other Racing BMW's

That Escort of Van Der Merwe which went up against Scheckter's BMW 530i, wasn't that Cosworth powered?

Re: Peter Gough Perana

The body of Gough's car was lilac with the black bonnet and stripes. Swanepoel's car started out as yellow with blue flashes and red pinstripe borders along the sides. That became blue and white. Flip Smit kept his car in the Perana colours

Re: F5000

A lot of people say that the Lola T70 was trashed to build this T140. How can that be when the T70 was still being raced in 1968?

Re: The Meissner Thread

Ja, that picture looks like it was taken in winter sometime, judging by the clothes the people are wearing. Still it was a nice developement car which Meissner were obviously trying after the successes of the Lotus Cortina. This had by now, got a little long in the tooth and he had to find something...

Re: What happened to the Cortina Peranas?

Yes, that car was superb and very successful. Remember the way Koos and Peter Gough would dice together, with Gough driving the Ted Lanfear Capri V6?
