You may recall Dave Hamlin appearing on the BCCA forum. He lives in Perth and is working hard to ressurect the old Dick Murphy racing Mark 7 which, by all accounts, has had a bit of a hard life. Anyway, Dave is an ex-pat Kiwi. In 1992 Dave Robertson and he built the car in this photo and Dave (Hamlin) campaigned it in classic racing in New Zealand until 2004, taking out the 1999 sports car championship of the of the Southland sports cars. It ran a 300hp 186. He was planning on bringing the car with him to Australia but CAMS showed very little interest in it and couldn't find a category for it so he left it behind. He did, however, bring the motor which is being transplanted into the Mark 7.
