....and farewell to Charmaine and Rick.

Next Sunday Rick and Charmaine will be off to their new home in Sydney. Beven said the other day - our loss, Sydney's gain, which is very true. We have been blessed to have had their company for all of those years. Already, NSW club members are preparing to make them welcome and are looking forward to another Bolly at their AGM gathering at the Shannons Sydney Classic at Eastern Creek on August 17. Don't forget, Rick, that we need you for the 6 hour and Mallala is only a bit further on from Naracoorte.

Farewell B8/88

Ross's Nagari has now gone to Melbourne to another Ross - Ross Jackson who races a Pantera.......
......the yellow one in this picture, a proper RHD one. Ross (J) is looking forward to joining the Victorian club. He's not the first to have a Nagari and a Pantera, hey Gary?

Unfinished project.

Not mine. This is the cover photo for Unfinished Projects For Sale's Facebook page but I thought it was funny.

Here's an idea for Eureka owners.

Exciting itiniary for Easter at Naracoorte.

Visits to iconic railway stations in the area.
Appreciate the architecture of the district. It's said that Saint Mary McKillop actually had a wee in that dunny. Thanks Luke Wehrmann for the picture.

Up to 50 years ago.

When Jeff During turns up to MSCA sprints at Mallala and puts in respectable times in his stock looking Datsun Z 2+2, this is how many of us remember him........

Not the South Australian Puma but the Brazilian one.
It just started me wondering whatever happened to the blue one that used to float around Adelaide.

It's getting like that over this way too.

Take the number of MX5s in the 6-hour for example.
I have a prediction - I reckon the next phenomena will be the GT86.

Sound advice

from Lightburn in the 50s

Swansong GT

Doesn't look too bad and the specs sound good.

A few photos sitting on my desktop.

These were from the McLaren Vale Classic Vehicle Wine and Food Event this year. Ross came over and drove Jim's Nagari down. Andrea brought out the NSX. We have an affinity with the NSX mob which is nice.
"Fairladies" young and old.

Lucky it was his head he landed on.

Udo is conscious and doing OK after his fall from the balcony.

Meanwhile, over in the wild, wild west.

It was Albany round the houses weekend and ace motorsport photographer, Stacey N captures the atmosphere.
If you look closely in this pit area you might be able to make out a black Mk.7.
and if this flaggy didn't get in the way, you'd see it again.
At least the other official was taking time out for a cuppa.
Ah, here it is in the distance.

The latest from Spain in pictures.

The latest addition to the racing stable - a 944 turbo and look what Joe and Ramon have been up to lately with the Bolwell.
