Jesper OH should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Adding small bits had made a major contribution to the various BTCC pages and will hopefully do so here too. I had little knowledge except for the Nissan Mobil 500 races before these threads, but am pleasantly surpriced that New Zealand appears to have had it's own unique Group A community.

About 40 minutes worth of highlights from the '86 Wellington Street Race has appeared on Youtube - you may be able to glean some more info off that

Bonus points if you can figure out what Armin Hahne's on about!

(Actually, look like the '87 WTCC race is there too, in similar detail...)

For some reason I thought the engine/gearbox from the destroyed Kent Baigent BMW ended up in this car. That may have been the case later on.
At Pukekohe the car finished fourth after an early stop to replace a half shaft.
Now, which 'ex-Frank Sytner' 635 was the Crosby/MacKinnon car?

Frank apparently bought the 3 CC Motorsport/BMW GB cars, then sold them on- one to Mike Newman in the UK who ran it in the BTCC 1985-7 (and I think may still have it?), one to O'Brien before Bathurst '85...
(the red 'State Coal' car in the NZ races)

...and I thought the third (the spare) went to Europe (Belgium?)- pretty sure this one was LHD- the other two being RHD, as shown in the pic of the O'Brien car.

The pic clearly shows the Crosby car as another RHD 635- so was this Sytner's 1985 BTCC car sold on to NZ? (don't recall if the Sytner car was LHD or RHD)

Jesper, there is certainly still a lot of interest in these cars here, and a lot of nice machinery over here. A new series started last year for historic touring cars, which covers early 80's Group A up to late 90's Super Tourers, and is getting pretty decent fields. There has been some talks about making a trip to Australia with our cars to race over there, and vice versa. Gp.A is alive and well down under!

I've been sitting on these results for a while, so time to put them up.
Have reviewed the highlights of the race uploaded to Youtube and from a DVD sent to me (thanks to ten-tenths member, Chavez), which has helped add in some minor details.

However, the complete grid and results are from Frank de Joeng's website here: http://homepage.mac.com/frank_de_jon...ellington.html

*Rolled one car in practice, but believe they swapped to second car for race.

For its second year, the Nissan Mobil 500 attracted a very strong field. The newly homologated evolution Holden Commodore VKs of Brock/Moffat, Grice/Cameron, Hulme/Smith and Bowkett/Wilkinson were expected to take the race to the two TWR Rovers of Walkinshaw/Percy and Hahne/Dickson and the Volvo 240T of Francevic/Lindstrom.
Andy Rouse came down to NZ to share his BTCC winning Sierra XR4Ti with David Oxton, and while considered a strong prospect for the pole, not many people thought the car would last the distance.
The Mustang of Johnson/Crichton and the BMWs of Crowe/Longhurst, Morton/Richards, Crosby/McKinnon, O'Brien/McIntyre and Keogh/Robertson were expected to go the distance, but would be relying on legendary reliability or rain to score a result.
As it turned out, the weather played a big role in the race.
Rouse did take the pole - in a top 10 shoot out held in very wet conditions. Francevic was alongside, followed by Brock, Johnson, Crowe, Grice, Harvey, O'Brien, Hulme and Bowkett.
From the start, on a dry track, the Volvo took the lead and Brock quickly found a way past Rouse as well.
The Volvo would lead for the first 1/3rd of the race, chased by Brock's Commodore.
Behind, the Bowkett Commodore was an early casualty after clipping a wall and Grice suffered early problems dropping him well back.
Rouse's Sierra retired on lap 5, parked on the opposite side of the track from the pit wall.
Meanwhile, Denis Hulme had moved the AC&B Commodore up ahead of Crowe into the top three.
The Volvo retired about 1/3rd distance, leaving Brock in charge from Hulme and Crowe.
Then the weather arrived and the Holden Dealer Team gambled on intermediates, leaving Moffat struggling and falling down the field.
The Hulme/Smith car took on full wets and took the lead of the race, with the Crowe/Longhurst BMW - also on wets - grabbing second and closing quickly on the AC&B Commodore.
The great run of the AC&B Commodore came to an end when the gear lever came off in Smith's hands at 2/3rd distance, leaving the Crowe/Longhurst BMW with a huge two lap lead over the Brock/Moffat Commodore. The rain had stopped by 2/3rd distance, and on a drying track Brock took on the task of hauling in the BMW, lapping some 2.5 seconds a lap quicker than the BMW. However, Longhurst seemingly had it all under control until a suspension failure pitched the BMW into the wall with 10 laps to go.
This promoted Brock into the lead, ahead of Dick Johnson, John Harvey in the second HDT Commodore and Per-Gunnar Andersson in the visiting Rockgas Volvo. However, no sooner had Harvey taken over third, then he exited the race with engine failure, promoting the Volvo into third.
This is the way they finished, with the amazing little factory backed UDC Toyota NZ Corollas of Jennings/Barrow and Adams/Woolf finishing 1st & 2nd in class and 4th and 5th outright.
The Nissan Bluebird Turbo of Halliday/Croft won the 1,601-2,500cc class ahead of the Barry/Heyer Fiat Ritmo 130TC.

Hi,
Have filled in a few more gaps. The Capri, the Bowkett Commodore and the Collingwood Commodore can all be seen in the You Tube footage.
The only shots I can see of the Collingwood Commodore is where it is parked off in the background after retiring. Look for the Blue Evo VK Commodore in the background of some of the shots.

Footage of the race had been linked before, but I'll link it again here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bA6VqI1-MVg

Didn't realise such a book had ever been produced! What's the title, the auther, publisher and what are the ISBN-number?

Entrant names lacks for most entries as does the number of laps for most DNF's. Any information about non-starter or DNAs?

Just been looking at the NZ 'Roaring Season' forum, and tripped over these pics of the entry list in the programme for Manfeild, 11-12 Jan 1986

http://www.theroaringseason.com/atta...3&d=1329716552

http://www.theroaringseason.com/atta...4&d=1329716764

Mostly names we're familiar with in this and the other NZ/AUS season threads, but one or two are new to me

#44, Tim Taylor in a Rover Vitesse in particular leaps out at me... I wasn't aware of any NZ Rovers apart from the TWR visits to the Nissan Mobil races, and Tim Slako's pink car making the trip at some point

John Madden should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
If I rember correctly Baigent's helmet came off in this shunt. As a consequence thereafter, scutineers made you don your helmet while they tried to pull it off your head by lifting the back of it. Good job it wasn't his nomex underwear that failed.

Yes, MalcolmC posted a couple of pics in the 635 thread from one of the NZ magazines at the time showing the Baigent shunt:

One clearly shows his helmet flying through the air after it left the car- That was definitely a very big one...

Pole: David Oxton Ford Sierra XR4Ti
Results:
1st Trevor Crowe/Tony Longhurst BMW 635CSi
2nd Robbie Francevic/Mark Petch Volvo 240 Turbo
3rd Alan Prince/Mike Houringan (Jaguar XJS)
4th Paul Adams/Alan Wolf (Toyota Corolla GT 1.6)
5th Warren Burt/Jeff Pascoe (Toyota Starlet 1.3)

The Sierra's turbo blew on the warm up lap, so Oxton was a did not start.

Found results on Autosport October 31, 1985.
