Bring back those fab gassers!

The A40 Farinas at Mallory were really fast and surprisingly stable through the esses where 'greater' machinary came to grief. Could be driber talent though..

Could be the fact I was told that one had £60k spent on it over the years and the other was up for sale for £28k :-) You see this to me is what is spoiling this historic stuff, how on earth can one of those or its predecesor the A35 be worth this kind of money in a sane world.

Most of the field of small saloons where made up of A40s and Anglia's in the early to mid 60s. I virtually lived at Brands and used to follow the Molyslip Championship. Unfortunately I was witness to Chris Airey getting killed in 63 after he barrel rolled at the old bottom bend in his A40 and was thrown out.
Obviously the safety build of the cars then were not like today and I don't know if seat belts were even mandatory at the time.
I decided after that if I could ever afford to go racing it would be in an Anglia.

Unfortunately it could happen to Anglia drivers too - David Pearson at Cadwell park in the mid-60s.

I am sure they did get raced here in New Zealand. As you say most things did although I can't immediately find any photos. The "A40" in this photo http://www.flickr.com/photos/warwick...7609140652794/ is a replica of a very successful car from the 60s and 70s.

And there was the 1960 BTCC Championship winner & 2nd the year before.
Doc Shepard, Don Moore 1000 c.c car.

John Searby, brg 1000 c.c car won the I.C.S championship in the early 90's.
David Lewis, red/white 1275 c.c fast car also ran in that series

Ginger Payne raced a 1000 c.c car.

Mike Cave/ Harry Digby, 1275 c.c car entered by Richard Miles ( Downton ) London.
This car ran mainly down south, Combe,Brands,Crystal Palace & Goodwood.
It was & farina grey mk1 with a different grille area, it ran a Downton dry sump motor & held many track class lap records & won the Goodwood Members Championship for many years.
I think this car was later raced by Gordon Spice in Guyana.
Steven Miles ( Richards son ) runs a replica in the Masters series.
