HRSCC Historic and Vintage Festival - Taupo 4th and 5th Dec
A couple of days on from the Historic Racing and Sports Car Club's
annual Taupo TT event and time to reflect on what a wonderful
weekend everyone had. Everything worked superbly, the weather,
the entry, the 'racing', and the socialising. The biggest plus
must be that there were no incidents or damage among the competitors,
everyone was out for some fun and a good run.
There were six groups running - historic sports-racing, Formula
Fords, Formula 3/Formula Junior, Alfas, sports cars and the highlight
of the weekend a good grid of vintage cars of all sizes and speeds.
Our group had two invited guests, a very neat and quick Terrapin
and Nigel in Graham Banks' Mk 5 Buckler (which also ran in the
vintage group with Graham aboard).
A nice surprise was seeing Garth Thomas who bought his partly
restored T72 Cooper-BMC formula three car for all to see. It was
nice to meet Garth's dad, Bryan, a gentleman who competed in Jim
Barclay's Gemini back in the 60s, some real Formula Junior history.
Most lost count of how many laps they got in, with very little
time lost to recovering vehicles the groups rolled around so quickly
everyone had had enough by 3pm on Sunday - the Carter Elfin, now
back to genuine FJ specs and looking resplendent in new black
paint, had enough. The battery went flat during its last run !
The Wayne Rodgers' initiated and created "Spirit of Formula
Junior Award" went to the team of Walter Findlay and Rex
Harrison for their never-give-up attitude, much to the delight
of all competitors.
By my reckoning the HRSCC have been running this meeting now
for 25 years, if you were unfortunate enough to miss this year,
don't dispair, pencil it in for the first weekend in December
next year. You won't regret it !
Regards and Compliments of the Season to all.
