I am chasing the dates of any non championship rounds at Oran Park during 1975. So no ATCC or Manchamp. I am trying to work out when Warren Cullen had his first race in his L34. The photo below was taken between July and September.

Cheers.

Nice rubbing strip along the bodyline.

I jad a quick look at old Chequered Flag magazines. From what I saw they only mention his man champ attendance.

I really need to find a school kid willing to work for 5 bucks an hour to scan all of my Australian Racing Car News magazines.  It is too cold to sit out in the shed going through them all.

 

Nice work Dave. There was nothing on the web that showed all of the rounds.

The car looked much different by September when Brock drove it to 2nd place.

I need to find some photos of under the bonnet and in the boot to identify if the one I'm looking at is the real deal.   Brock, Harvey, and Max Stewart all drove it.

Would that have been the 3rd round of the manchamp at Sandown on the 14th September?

The Brock - Cullen connection was through Michelle Downes. I think she was a sister in law to Warren?
