Pictures,of racing, group 1 etc,etc,

Post by Mark Walshaw » Tue Apr 10, 2012 4:58 am

Hi Guys, decided on new Thead for racing, any pics from group 1 to wild. I have found several pics that I took as a youngster of group one and modified saloon cars. As well as some from the Ultimoil challenge. All pics of racing will do. :?:

The chase back to the front, can't remember if he won or not. Maybe someone else can remember, hey Kevin how is your memory? :?: I think this was 1981 or 82 season.

Mark, sadly I missed a lot of the racing .(I was trying my luck trying to play pro tennis - ran out of money and talent :D )
Your photos are great. keV from aK components has also a good collection . I am currently trying to put the best race footage ever of the 2hr endurance when the gtv 3.0 was launch . I have sent a few copies to guys on this forum including maurizio bianco a copy . I think I have watched it 50 times :D
Have you got a copy .

Hi Kevin

I would love a copy, unfortunately all my VHS cassettes with SA racing, BTCC and DTM where loss in the move to Cape Town about 10years ago. Good news my business partner who is now a Pro aviation photographer ( Guy who bought the 164) has boxes and boxes of negatives that we will slowly go thought an scan all racing photos for the forum. :D
