The ZA guys have just had a car show in a town called George. This is located in the South Eastern Cape. About 1300km south from Johannesburg and about 400km east from Cape Town. The reason why this show received this special attention is not known to me but they have gone a long way to attend this show. Most of the cars were from Johannesburg were trailered down except my mate Jimmy that drove his G down there and back. I have recovered some pictures from their mails and postings for you to ponder. I can't tell who is who but that doesn't matter.
That's that for the show.
I mentioned else where that Scamp Porter passed away recently at the age of 81 and then the Cape Town crowd arranged to do a lap of honour around the local track (Killarney). For those who don't know the name Scamp Porter, I would advise you to read all about the doings and screwings of Renaults in ZA during the late 60s and early 70s. The site that will giive you the best info will be a search for ALCONI on the www.
So here is a few photos of that lap of honour.
This is a photo of Scamp's Gordini, no 28, that that came 3rd or 4th overall in the 9 hour endurance race and that took care of a few Porches, Lolas and Ferraris in the process.
a photo of Scamp and I in serious discussion mode.
As a matter of interest, The leading Gordini in the parade is that of Hennie Mostert which is the very 1st R1135 sold in ZA and that car still belongs to him. There is a lot on him and the hillclimb records and winnings with the same car. A worthwhile Google search as well.
