When you think of sports cars, don't forget about the Clubmans, later called Sports 1300.
Around a track like Winton or Amaroo Park, they gave many a big banger a hard time.

G'day
I agree the lowly clubbie can be awesomely quick machine. A bloke by the name of Brian Sampson owned the outright lap record at Amaroo Park for years. It ran a Corolla 1300 engine. I think the father of all clubmans was the Lotus 7 and possibily the most copied of all sports cars
Go the clubman!!

Timbo,

Thanks for the pics, do you know what if car No 61 in the 3rd pic is a Farrell?

I own an '83 Farrell that has been "played" with some what and would love to know what it should look like.

Thanks again,

Ashley

Having passed the race programs on to someone else, I can't look it up and say for certain, but I do think it is a Farrell.
If you Google "Farrell clubman" and click onto ashos.com webpage, you will see a photo of Keith Williamson's Farrell clubman, which is running around in historics at the moment, and they do look very similar.
