I found this photo in my archive,of John Morris in his Mk1 Golf at Donington, with Tony Dickinson's? RS2000 also in the shot.
I do not recognize the Mazda,anyone ?

Nice shot of the Group 1 cars (more welcome!). The Mazda is one of the TWR cars, likely pedalled either by Chuck Nicholson or David Palmer.

Patrick Motors Rovers? IIRC Brian Muir and Rad Dougall come to mind?

Yes, looks like it's 1982 in these shots?

The Datapost and Hepolite Metro's suggest so, as do the Dickenson RS2000 and what looks like Hamish Irvine's Dolly Sprint? (Makes me wonder whose RX7 that was a few posts back?!!)

I'm thinking it could be time for a 1982 Tricentrol Grp 1 thread along the lines of the ones from '83 onwards so we can keep this one specific to JMR cars?

Would anyone object if I moved these across to start such a thread (WOCCOWAYCER, you could then continue to post similar piccies in that?)

Works for me! It's a couple of years before I started to really watch racing, so don't have any pics- might be able to muster the odd race result and report though...

Chunterer,
A few more piccies from the same meeting,

Dennis Leech Rover SD1,with holed headlight.

Vince Woodman Capri, I'm not sure about the Sanyo Rover,my first guess would be Jeff Allam ? looks like his helmet.

The red Capri would most likely be Gordon Spice ? is it #8 ?

The last picture,of the Spice Capri was taken at a small racing car show at Central Milton Keynes at the end of 1982.

Good shots again there! Woodman really looks hard on the gas coming out of the chicane!

That's the oft discussed car that Brian Chatfield bought, and interestingly, the last pic you've posted of no 8 is highly likely the other one he bought at the end of 1982/early 1983.

Keep the pics coming chap, most valuable. We can start to get down to talking about the season shortly I guess folks?

Mallory Park was the season opener IIRC?

Seeing the Hepolite and datapost Metro's reminds me of the time they entered a combined team at the Donington 500 and were (unofficially) known as Team Hepopost...

I've got one or two results from 1982- I'll sort them out. Anyone know the calendar? I don't have the dates, but think this might be partly right...

Round 1- Mallory?
Round 2-???
Round 3-Oulton
Rounds 4-7- ???
Round 8- Brands
Round 9- Donington
Round 10- Silverstone

The presence of Dennis Leech indicate this was round 7 held on 4 July 1982. I have a complete year of 1982 Autosport providing full qualifying times for all rounds (I think), top-10 overall results and top-3 in the classes. I'll have a look in the relevant issues and post some results.
Oh, the red Corolla must be none other than the recently surfaced Chris Hodgetts!

Mallory was early March I think?

Thruxton would've followed Oulton over the Easter weekend I reckon?

I'll look out some results etc too...

A small addition of numbers in class A.

Were the TWR Rovers no's 19 & 20. Not sure why I think that but..

Drat I've only gone and mucked up the table Jesper, it seems to have cut out the cars at the end when I edited in the entrants??!!

R1 - 21 March, Silverstone
R2 - 28 March, Mallory Park, 1 x 2 races
R3 - 9 April, Oulton Park, 1 x 2 races
R4 - 12 April, Thruxton
R5 - 31 May, Thruxton
R6 - 13 June, Silverstone
R7 - 4 July, Donington Park
R8 - 18 July, Brands Hatch, British GP
R9 - 15 August, Donington Park
R10 - 30 August, Brands Hatch
R11 - 3 October, Silverstone

I believe 1982 to be the last time Mallory Park has been used for a round of the BSCC/BTCC. Why was Mallory dropped from future dates?
