Reynard in Action – Adelaide MotorSport Festival October 2015

Wednesday, October 28th, 2015

Hi All

Just a quick note to advise you of the results of the Victoria Park Sprints at the Adelaide Motorsports Festival.
As previously communicated on the we had a hectic run in to the event with a late acceptance of our entry but, apart from some brake issues magnificently fixed by the crew, we ran fast and were finally fourth outright. It should be noted that Brenton Ramsay won outright in the similar Reynard 94D and we know one major reason why. That’s perfectly legal and just what we would have done with more lead time. Next year!
We were faster than all the F1 cars and by all accounts the car looked and sounded superb and was well received by the crowds. We had hundreds of visitors in the pits and were a popular destination every time we warmed the car. I’m told there was 20000 plus paying guests so the event has been deemed a tremendous success and there are already applications for a full F1 field next year. We are working on a full Fholden field too. There were hundreds of club cars and period costumes as well as the Rally cars from the Adelaide Classic on show so there was lots to see (and eat).
We will certainly be involved next year and with more lead time we will challenge for the outright win.
Thanks to Andrew Lydon, Steve Davis and John Mahoney for the extraordinary work in preparation and running the car at the event under the usual capable direction of team manager Rebecca.
We are back in business with a running car, a work list to improve our competitiveness and the fire in the belly to achieve our goal.

Looks like this guy has taken my money and not sent me the goods I purchased. Watch out for this rip off merchant.

heres what I used to drive

FVA is here

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

The Bowin P3 tub and the original FVA number 7044 were last in the same place in 1970. It’s a huge thing to see them both in the same place again. Many thanks to Graham Brown for selling it to me and for the awesome rebuild. It really is very pretty. Now we need a new diff for the car and to start assembling it.

This engine was issued to Piers Courage for the 1968 Tasman series in Australia and purchased by Glyn Scott at the end of the series for fitment to the new Bowin FVA. The original specification was minimum 231 BHP at 9000 RPM with a 10500 RPM redline from 1600cc,

!0 years ago we were on our way to Winton holding a narrow lead in the Silver Star. We won it on the 10th Septempber 2001. Our press releases were going to go out on the 11th but no-one cared about sport that day.
