Wallerfield Racing Complex....The Glory Days.

Postby wagon r » July 13th, 2006, 7:33 am

As everyone knows, the Wallerfield Racing circuit has been a part of TnT's racing heritage for over 40yrs. We have reached a point now where all racing at Wallers hangs in the balance of the nation's courts.

However, this thread is dedicated to the racers of the past who made the drives to the track a worthy Sunday afternoon expense and where families and friendships bonded, while action took place on the track.

The pictures you will see below were taken from various individuals who back then never left home without their camera and who we are now grateful for this look back into history.

Anyone remember this car? It was one of two HARTGE tuned BMWs that came to race. The white was a 2litre four cylinder. The red was a 2.6litre 6 cylinder. I can never forget the sound of these cars, they ran perfectly evry lap, like swiss watches, no missfire, no sputtering, made the most lovely sound.

lots more to come..... :) [/url]

This is the engine of the red BMW, the 6 cylinder. These cars came from Germany with two German drivers and tyheir mechanics.

THis is a picture of the two of them doing a honour lap.

THis is cheekes with the J&B escort teaching Hans how to do it Trini style at the bottom corner. I think he was running the marvelous little 1300cc Ford Twin Cam engine. You can see the BMW a little sideways here.

Image

The BMW is desperately trying to underbrake Cheekes at the bottom....

Image

THis is a few laps later, the BMW was very quick on the straight and he eventually got by. Heck, what you expect, a 2litre BMW??

THis is Hans again, by himself now, if I remember correctly I think Cheekes had some problems with his car and dropped out.

The BMW takes the chequered flag!

This is Gilmore in the famous Citizen Escort trying to come to grips with the 6 cylinder BMW, how many of you remember this car, it was very fast, had a Ford BDG engine, same as the Geese. None of the local cars were a match for the 6 cylinder BMW, it had displacement and power, over 350bhp i think.

Image

IN dis pic, Cheekes is badly outclassed by the more powerful BMW:

Image

Look carefully at this pic, I didnt have my zoom lens with me this day so its kinda small, this is Keith Singh in the Ford RS2000 Escort. I took this pic here because evry lap he would throw the car sideways in this corner, always on opposite lock.

Image

This is de Professor (Clive Sugden) giving some lessons. Anybody remember the famous race between the professor and Richard Longman from the UK. Longman came here with one of his famous minis from the UK, the hype for the race was that he had won 99 races straight with that car in England and he was coming here to make it 100. That was a now legendary encounter with Sugden in the locally prepared Rustop Datsun 1200 battling against the famous Longman mini and Clive ending up victorious in the end, breaking the Englishman's winning streak. That was one of the best races I ever saw, it was so close from start to finish. This race stamped Sugden as one of Wallerfields best.

This was taken at the treet race in San Fernando, its Frankie's ZAKSPEED Escort which I spoke a little about in the other thread.

Image

This is Ashmeed in the Federal Datsun at the same race:

Image

THis is a picture of one of the cars that came from Colombia with the Porsches, if I remember corrrectly, I think it had a V8 engine and puit out around 600 to 700 hp. I think it was a TRANSAM class car. Unfortunately this is the only pic I have from this race, I shot an entire roll of 36 moving all over the track to get different angled action shots only to discover the next day that my film slipped out of the takeup spool and none came out. That was my worse experience at wallerfield. I cuss for two months.

Image

While other kids were building sand castles, this is what I was building...

That was the Monza from coloumbia. Was a totally diiferent sound for wallers circuit racing when you were accustomed to hearing only 4 cylinders and rotaries.
