Bit of a thread revival.

Is anyone able to confirm whether it was Leo or Ian Geohegan who drove with Bill Bryce at Sandown in 1987 in the ex JPS BMW325i? According to this it was Ian & they finished 16th:

But here it says it was Leo & 17th place...

I'm pretty sure it was Leo in the BMW, he had been doing some Group E racing in a Starion that year too

Ian did the Oran Park Silver Anniversary "Commodore Classic" race in early 1987, but I can't recall him doing much other racing around that time (Appendix J in a Mustang at Bathurst in 1989 too)

My program for the meeting shows Leo, but interestingly the official results sheets that I also have show the co-driver as TBA.

From "The Great Race 1987/88", P.63:

"... and a 325i for two delightful veterans in Kiwi Bill Bryce (a former associate of Bruce McLaren) and Australian champion Leo Geoghegan, whose last Bathurst drive had been 14 years before.

3. 1984 Bathurst car GpA, 1985 ATCC, Better Brakes, Endurance Championship car used by Jim Richards. Sold to Garry Rogers in 1986. Now with me.
4. Neville Creighton's 1985 car, sold to Archibald. Used by Charlie O'Brien for some events in 1986. Now with Graham Dodd.
5. Richards early 1986 car (wasnt ready for the start of the season so he used the 1985 car for 2 rounds). I think sold to Archibald in mid 1986, driven at Bathurst by Bartlett and Crowe. In NZ now. I will check the name of the present owner.
6. The last GpA car was built 1986, used by JR/TL at Sandown, Bathurst, JR at Calder, Oran Park. Sold to Ray Gulson at end of 1986 and used for many years at Bathurst. Now in the Bowden collection.
7. There was one extra car that never raced in Australia and was going to be turned in to video game ride, but never happened. I think this car raced in Europe before arriving in Australia. Is now in the Bowden collection.

I think........

Adrian.
Thanks guys, I've also tracked down a photo of the Bryce / Geoghegan 325i at Sandown in 1987 which shows Leo's name on the car.


In reference to above, some changes in 635 status can be updated.

* The Dean Howe car has been restored & back on the track.
* Peter Sturgeon's car has been returned to Group C spec and recently underwent a wee jaunt to the UK & Europe with Jim.
* The Graham Dodd car has been sold to Peter Gleeson, a collector in the U.S.
* The car that was owned by Jim Richards (which one?) was sold to John Fairhall of Archibalds Motors in Christchurch just over a year ago and is now sporting 'Archibalds' livery from when Trevor Crowe raced with Archibalds sponsorship back in the Group A days. Trevor will be behind the wheel again for historic events, next one the Skope Classic in Christchurch 3/4 February 2018.

Did Jim own more than one of the 635s? The one I sold to Adrian was one that Jim told me he'd owned after Joe Somariva and it was the 85 championship car.

Jim did own the Neville Creighton car in recent times, but sold it about a year ago and it has gone back to NZ.

Forgetful me, I knew there was some interest from an NZer in getting the car back but wasn't aware it had gone. I forgot about it completely.

This car has been wrongly reported in recent times as the 1985 ATCC winner too.

This car ( entered as a 1986 635 ) is being raced today and tomorrow by Trevor Crowe at the New Zealand Festival of Motor Racing at Hampton Downs in Auckland. Jim Richards is also entered in a 1983 635, would this be the Peter Sturgeon Group C / A periscope car?. Various other BMW's entered, see the pic.

A local site will have pics up soon, which I'll endeavour to link to when they are up so you can all have a look.
