Baskerville Historics – Oct 2014

IMGP3182

Some Lotus Action in Tassie.

Bumped into one of our past members from Queensland while down at the Baskerville Historics.

Graham Vaughan and his wife were racing their Replica 1958 Lotus 11 (car number 8). Roger Richardson was also racing a Westfield Lotus 11 Replica (car number 11).

Chas Kelly had his Lotus Cortina on display. This is the original car that was raced in Tasmania in the early 1960s by Robin Pare. Don Elliot was the owner at that time. Refer to the attached pic for the history of the car.

Also, we raced our white 4 door GT Cortina at the Ipswich Classic last weekend. I ran into Queensland Lotus Club member John Barram and his wife on Sunday arvo when they were leaving to go home. I took a pic of his third prize trophy for racing in the HRCC Sports and Racing Cars for the weekend. John was racing his Mk 5 Cheetah.
