Yesterday I thought bugger it why don't I put in an entry to run the RF40 at this meeting and see what the organisers (VHRR) do with it. I'll let you all know the result when it happens.
Even if they reject my entry it'll be a good shit stir, I know Russ will enjoy that.

So what's happened to your 'rebuilding a race engine' thread?

Go on Ross, wind them up, we all know how laidback you are......

Re: NZ built Sports racing cars. SCANZ etc.

Hello Kiwis
I do not live in the land of the long white cloud these days so I am a bit out of touch.
I see that you are having trouble with the rules etc.
I used to crew for Chris Abbot ............ can he help or hinder you in any way.

Is Can't Grumble (Grant Campbell), Kenny smith still around.
You may have allready tried Chris but if you haven't he might be worth a try.

Regards
Philip

Re: NZ built Sports racing cars. SCANZ etc.

Phil mate kenny is still going, he celebrated 50 years of continuous participation in motor sport last year, mabe not as quick as he was but still keeps the young ones honest, if you no Ken youll also no his loverly mum who we lost at Manfeild this year, she took a turn for the worst and they rushed to Palmerston hosp, but didnt make it, and Ken being the driver he his still went out and dedicated the drive to Mum.
and yeh grumble gutz is still around somewhere.lol

Feilding EH! Cooked my Shaker up a bit on that track being silly! (ER: Having fun)

Well I never, Kenny must be 70. Sorry to hear about his mum. (She made a good Bacon and Egg Pie.)Good to see he is still playing "Argee Bargee" with the competition and keeping the young ones in line. I remember fabricating and replacing a corner for him after a little run in, at Feilding.
There was a guy Cook? he used to build quick engines for F/Ford. I was at his workshop in Auckland and he had a few kiwi style cars in his shed.
Would it be difficult to develop your own type of classic racing for 40's and the like for the newer age replicas?
Racing is for fun and should be open to everyone!
I will be in Fielding in Novemberish and will catch up with a Guy named Wayne Evans. (Cam Belt/Blower belt man.)
Those beady little Kenny Fox eyes in your mirror are hard to forget.
Phil

Do you live on the back road just down from the club house on the right coming from the Bulls end?
Reg Cook it is!
Also remember another big guy from feilding. He used to run the open track days a lot.
I see Possum is gone also ............... I seam welded one of his cars at Ray Fowler Panel-beaters. (Before he became really famouse, he of course was broke!)
I will come to the races.
You speak of classic racers ............ wonder how many are sitting in implement sheds or under trees
Phil.
