Note the prize money ! (when we see the programs)
* Lithgow Hill climb was where I first met Terry Harris
* Brief history of my second sports racing car. The Tamell attached. Programmes from O.P. Sept 67, April 69, and W.Farm 68 show a variety of Triumphs were included in these events. We can track down some of these from the programs
* My latest sports cars, Lancia, Lotus 23, and Matich SR5 were all Group A sports cars. TRs subsequently as Marque Sports cars
* The Tamell which was a home made special featured a space frame construction, Renault Frigate (Frégate) rear end with sliding half shafts, 6 amal carbs,and a Falcon 6cyl engine. The body featured home made glass guards and aluminium panels. Following its sale to a Bob Sugden, it was purchased by a Maurice Palmer from Oakdale who in 2015 placed an ad in the Oily Rag seeking origins of a car called the Tamell. I made contact with Maurice who has had the car for 40 years. It has been restored, done a few hillclimbs with disc brakes and big tyres now but has never raced again. Thought you might be interested.
The photos below were taken at Warwick Farm (year?) with John at the wheel of the "Tamell Ford"
