    Default Motor Show

    Me and Harry went to Te Aroha this weekend to have a look at an annual motor show they have. It was a good outing for the Renaults clocking up 203 miles there and back and not missing a beat.

    Most interesting vehicle was the Darracq. This vehicle has been restored and it is one that has taken part in the Grand Prix of 1906. The driver, Anne Thompson, is a classy lady that can put the Darracq side ways on a race track. Asked how fast it was she replied that recently in England she passed an Austin Healey that was clocked at a 105 mph. It has a 14.25 liter 4 cylinder engine with twin spark. What is new today? Mechanical brakes on the rear wheels only.

    Old enough to know better
    Young enough to do it anyway.

    Hi,
    Yes I've seen this French antique (and driver) in action at the "Skope" Classic car race meeting in Christchurch. She doesn't hold back!

    Cheers, Henry.
