anthony81901 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I was under the impression that Les Small branched out and ran his own engineering business in much the same way Larry Perkins did after he left the employ of HDT. Certainly in 1988 he was busy not only building 2 new VLs for Garry Rogers, but upgrading older cars to the new TWR specs for a number of privateers.

He did became a major supplier to the Auscar field. In 1994 he built up an EB Falcon supercar, but never raced it before selling it. Recall that he was working for Paul Morris a few years ago at the same time as his son James was Russell Ingall's engineer.

Built the 2 Imrie Motorsport Commodores as well, having had something to do with the Smiths Trucks team, and moved to Kelly Racing, also with son James (a good steerer in his own right..) working race weekends on the #16 car for a while..

Race 1 (4/11/1989)
Race Distance: 9 laps (15 laps scheduled, race distance reduced due to accident during first start)
Weather: Sunny

A crash and bash affair, this one. Skaife was the first domino to fall, getting punted into the fence as the field exited the chicane on the first lap. The damage ended his weekend. Brock led from Longhurst, Seton, Miedecke, Bowe and Johnson. Bowe was struggling with a misfire, which eventually caused his to spin into the wall when the car cut out mid-corner. Coming down to the final hairpin for the third time, Johnson tapped the back of Miedecke, sending the Kenwood Sierra hard left into the wall. Meanwhile further around the corner, Bond had a half-spin and was collected by Percy. The race was red-flagged as marshalls put out a fire at the front of Miedecke's car, while Miedecke himself went back to the pits to confront Johnson. Miedecke was scheduled to air-freight his car to Fuji for the Intertec 500, but the damage curtailed the plans. Sadly, it would be the last hurrah for Miedecke's independent efforts. He signed a deal to race for Brock in NZ and for 1990, soon putting the Kenwood Sierra on the market and selling the team to Kevin Waldock.

Brock led away from the restart while Johnson made his way into second past Longhurst and Seton down Brabham Straight. Longhurst soon found himself unchallanged out in front as first Brock then Johnson spun out of the lead, and Seton retired with a broken half-shaft. He went on to win the shortened race from a recovering Brock and Percy.

Heat 2 (5/11/1989)
Race Distance: 10 laps
Weather: Rain

The foul weather that plagued the F1 race also afflicted the touring car race, the rain starting to fall with the cars already on the grid. Richards got the jump from the second row to lead early, before Longhurst and Bond passed the Nissan on Brabham Straight. I've haven't seen this race since it happened, and the report in AMRY isn't very extensive, just saying that this race was considerably less incident-packed compared to the previous day.

William Dale Jr should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
It was Colin Bond's car from the 1988 ATCC. The car was one of the original OXO Sierras, originally driven by Don Smith in 1987. The car was purchased mid-season by John Giddings who stepped into the driver's seat for the rest of the ATCC, joined for the enduros by Bruce Stewart.

Colin Bond missed out on a new Sierra shell at the start of 1988 and did a deal to use Giddings car for the ATCC while he waited to build his own car. Bond's car was ready for the enduros, so Giddings drove his car with Bruce Stewart in the enduros in Caltex colours. After that, the car was put up for sale.

After Bathurst 1988, the car's only race appearance (that I can find) is at that AGP support race. One of our forum members, bent65, now owns the car (http://tentenths.com/forum/showpost....&postcount=339).


htc, do you have any more info on Les Swallow or his one-off appearance at the AGP meet?

Just got a copy of race 1, I will have it on youtube sometime in the next few weeks. Peter Doulman managed to basically drive over the bonnet of Laurie Nelson's Mustang.

the book does not give results or car they were driving but with William's entry list helps you to tell.

the 2 not on the list Ken Lusty would be in the family commodore and I don't known what Dale Smart drove.

Has anyone seen any footage of Race 2 on the Sunday of the 1989 AGP support race? It got "interesting" when it started raining just after we lined up on the grid!
