Another local car is being looked at for purchase by another local ministock driver. Decision should be made in the next week. Will be a good deal Jayden, go for it and come play with the big (around the guts normally) boys.
This update comes with help from Westport,
and a huge shout out to Gill Simpson – thanks for being an observer over
the weekend Gill, you’ve done a great job. There are also a couple of extra
cars from Guy Stewart – great to see you continuing the form that won you
crew man of the year Stewy, though we’d all rather see you back on the
??gm? Chris Baxter - Bought the car from Stratford after being impressed by the racing at the Queen’s birthday meeting in Westport. Replaced the front suspension, still to replace the side rails, fit seat, new paint job.... looking forward to start of season! Another strong flatty to sort out the space frames!
27gm - Aaron Mauger - Purchased Holden v8 from Stratford, and got faster every meeting. Has replaced a side rail, moving fuel tank, making new rims, and a general tidy up. Would be racing tomorrow if he could!!
5gm – John O Callaghan – Jonny Knocka has 2 streetstocks and a stockcar in the shed. The streetstocks are just about complete, and will be making a start on the winter project with Guy Stewart to get another car on the track. Have EA power, bell housing, HQ box, and a couple of Mazda diffs all there ready to go. Just need to fill the car up. Will be a good war horse to get started in the grade., and we’ll no doubt see a couple of different drivers in this one.
21gm - Gill Simpson -. Has thought about starting the rebuild, but maybe the week before opening meeting might be a better time to start…has plans for fixing up floor plate, making up new front rims, diff & gearbox to come out and checked, and to get into a general tidy up. Good to see the front bumper is still straight after doing his best to dent the red rocket of 99gm (now sold - Gill claims its his big hit that caused retirement)
What’s happened to two stalwarts of the class over the last couple of years? 88gm and 99gm Dutchy and Cleve Kokshorn have sold up and retired from the grade. A real loss to the grade, and a shame to see them go. Had good cars, and were good club men, always there to pick the bins up at the end of racing. Clevo sold the Red Rocket to Rotorura, and Dutchy the x Davis Rees chassis to Nelson. Dutchy was heard to mention that the only way we’d see him back was in a new tank, so we have our fingers crossed – Cleve has a Microlight apparently, but if that doesn’t scare the GF who knows what may happen. Come back soon fellas!

Peter Rees workshop. Photo thanks to Goslideways. Might just be another
good car for the coast.
