Actually it looks more like a Dutch license plate. That would perhaps make it the Cees Verkooijen bus? He always drove Japanese cars, I vaguely remember a Nissan Cherry? His sons Ruud and Nelis competed until the mid-nineties in Rallycross, Nelis is now a Rally driver.

Yeah, I guess it’s Lydden.

But who the hell is the boy in the car? Young gbot72…?

Yes, it was Lydden. One of the sunnier days by the looks of it. Smithy used to compete quite alot at Lydden, being his local curcuit.

As for the young boy, well it looks like I'm sitting down to recover from the many trips up and down the paddock collecting water!!

Here's Porsche No 2, the 4x4 in action at Lydden.

Both of Johns Smiths Porsches, 4wd and 2wd at Lydden 21-9-85. The 4wd was in action on the Saturday in the ERC.

Maybe the 2wd was there for the Sunday event with the Belgium and Dutch racers

Has to be Matti Alamaki's Porsche, I'm sure this had some ridiclous power, although my favourite is his Lancia Delta.

I always remember Rob Gibson's Porsche, didn't he originally race a Porsche 914 ?

Oh I ahve some pics of that car in a book, was a lovely car. Did he notturbo it??

I remember Waldegaard ran one for Porsche in rallies but it was too frail and underpowered

Gorgeous car though, would love to drive one.

No 21 Dave Wallis!
No 174 Dennis Atkinson?
Although I wonder if Atkinson ever had backing from Allan Franklin’s Car Colours company…

174 was the starting no of Ron Johnson (TVR and later Alpine A310) for some years.

Dave Wallis had the 6 on his Escort, before Dennis Atkinson took over the 6 for his ex Tony Drummond Escort and later his 911.

You are quite right the red Porsche bearing the 174 did belong to Ron Johnson it was later sold to Peter Brown. Ron brought the car from an ex Autocross driver who's name escapes me but I do remember it was bright pink when he brought it.

This car came after the Renault Alpine A310 which my father brought and then sold on.

Welcome to the forum, pepsicola!

Bright pink? I do not remember all the funny colors used by Bernard Rodemark for his 911s, but perhaps pink as well…?
