Ok, lets see how my memory from when I was about 10 goes!!
The guy in the silver mini clubman is Aidan Cavey I think
Was it Peter Faulkner with the hat in the red Midget?
The pics with the Flogas advertisements are from the televised event in Leopardstown racecourse. I was at that event, think I was 9 or 10 at the time.
I think I still have that event on video somewhere. Its on an old 60minute video tape. Was about 1983 I think

Phillip
I never knew Russ Swift sponsored Dermot Carnegie's rallycross car for years.
The Da should be able to clear that one up.

On the subject; our Guten Tag friend, David Kennedy should be able to answer.
Who IS driving the red ' bucket' mini special ?

Piers
I will add some detail but would ask others to do so also.

We should get Phelix to do a session on them.

Rory
I suppose the video is tape ? Was that the RTE coverage ?


And finally

Social occasion idea. I recall Steve Griffin's brother Shea taking film of autotests circa early 1980's . Would be good to see...............
And other video/film stuff people have.
Eamonn King, I think, has the American TV slot of the RDS event I ran. 58 entries lads !

Tim, didn't cop that one! Sorry! It's just that I have a similar photo with a Mini being driven by Russ Swift, should have checked it first, could even be the same event?...

C'mon lads
Dont leave it all up to Phillip to make the running.

P
The Autoglaze car is John Ryan who is also MD of the company. He used share with his brother, Oliver.

You are correct with Russ Swift: but which picture ?

And you mention you had a photo from an event around then. Can we get access for the TDC History section
G'won Myles: You have millions of them. I've put you on the site: you can put others on. Or is it F.F. ?
