Whose workshop is that pictured with the four cars on the Social Climber page in the last issue? I couldn’t help noticing the Mallock style chassis. Amongst my other projects I have been pencilling a similar design to use ‘junk’ parts as a better racing alternative to a Locost.
Why aren’t the local publishers printing books about Australia’s great racing heritage? Australia’s had racing tracks galore over the years, such as Surfers Paradise, Lakeside and Calder.
Did you see that the great racecar manufacturer Lola is dead and the lawyers are picking over the bones! I thought they were much stronger than Lotus and other race car manufacturers.
I’ve really liked the past two issues of Race Magazine, top notch stuff and the variety has been good. The Datsun 1200 was a beauty, but it can’t be good for getting kids involved if you have to run a car that must look like a dinosaur! When do you reckon someone will start up another class like the Geminis that used to race here in Queensland? They were great stuff, cheap to race too and just the thing I’d like to get my 16 year old son into.
Responding to your request for feedback, I think the last thing needed is for Race Magazine to go down the road of mags that are full of photos of racing. I do like your articles on home building and the excellent, excellent article on Huff ‘n’ Puff. Question though: who are you pitching the main articles to and for?
