As for the driver, well I've had enormous fun, been bowled over by the generosity of other FJ folk and Kiwis in particular and learnt a helluva lot about the car which will be put to very good use when the proper engine goes in......then we can start breaking half shafts like everyone else!
I'll post some pics when I get home in a week or so.
Brilliant Colin.

International racing driver of renown now.

That said, no point in breaking half a shaft Colin, might as well go the whole hog and break a complete one.

Fantastic adventure you had. Waiting for the pics.

A lot of the race pics are on an SD card which now refuses to co-operate so until I can find a work around all I've got are the ones we took on phones. Here are a few from Hampton Downs, the first meeting.
1. Welding the sump - the 2 Andys. Jim Blockley's ex-pat brother Andrew (on the left) and his wife Jeanette drove me all over Pukekeho in search of remedies for my numerous problems this weekend. The other guy runs a prep shop at the circuit and generously stopped what he was doing on 2 occasions to come back to the workshop and sort me out.
2. Camp Junior - the guys who planned ahead were all tucked up in nice warm garages, the rest of us cheapskates were supremely grateful for the loan of this marquee, however rudimentary, when the monsoons arrived,
3. Some of the neighbours.
4. A Marina coupe, but not as we know it!
5 & 6. Front engined juniors in Sunday's wet race.

As you might have guessed- love the Marina Coupe!

Yep they still have great rotary engines specialist over there - 2 stroke engines too - , but there is room enough to fit a Nissan 3.5.With a sequential gear box may be ( a la Solution F).

Thanks Roger and I16!

I hope when it's racing there is a firewall of some sort between the driver and engine.......

I always feel a twinge of disappointment whenever I see (as in the link given above) a mention of a car being referred to as Mick Hill's Janglia. The fact of the matter is that the car was the idea and creation of Richard Scantlebury who built the car initially, with some of the bodywork alterations being carried out by a specialist in Pinner, Middx. That was in the mid sixties.

I happen to know this because Richard and I met for the first time at that workshop when they were re-profiling the wheel-arches for my Anglia whilst they were also working on Richard's Janglia.

It would be nice to see that he was credited, along with Doc Merfield and also the creator of the Berpop, as being the people behind what became very popular for a time, i.e. shoe-horning massive engines into ordinary saloons for racing.

Colin, if you're having problems with the SD card some of the manufacturers (including Sandisk and Lexar) provide their own downloadable data recovery software which often does the trick.

This. Although I'm not sure that they are back to allowing downloads for free. Not checked for a while.

That does assume the card is still readable. In most cases they are but sometimes not. If it is a decent recent card you would be very unlucky to have it fail. Incredibly unlucky for that to happen between the end of the trip and arrival at home.

I can probably find a disk with the software on if it helps but there are also other sources of such things these days.

Silly thought I know but probably worth checking that the lock is not on.

Also how it is formatted and how you are seeking to read from it may be influential.

Whatever you do DO NOT reformat it!

Forgot to mention - Fuji also do a data recovery service for 40 per card (no images recovered, no fee). Heard good things about it on the Fuji forums - don't think it has to be one of their cards.
