Any David Llewellin, Jimmy McRae or Roger Clark collectors on here ?

Current plan is to look at doing as many winning cars as possible, then cars of those advertised as attending.

He had Audi's in 1983,85,87,88 and Celica's in 89 & 90 so if anyone had the decals altered to COI models it would be a help.
Likewise with Jimmy McRae - he went from the 1980's all through the 90's in a whole series of cars - Firenza,Chevette,Metro,Manta,Ascona,Sierra.

It is not my intention to drip feed the models that will appear in Killarney but every now and then something comes out of the blue that is totally unexpected. I have just posted a photo on a facebook group called "The Golden Years of Rallying" and as ever if anyone of a technical bent can copy it on here I would be thankful. I am looking for further photos,preferably in colour, of a Chevron B8 (red with a black roof I'm told by the driver) which did both the 1973 Galway and Circuit driven by Mick Dolan. affraid affraid affraid affraid

I vaguely remember a short clip of the Chevron on the 25 years?? of the Donegal Rally DVD.

Havent found any photos yet but found this text any relation here??!!

[QUOTE=Alan Brown;2585583]Two “ex-racing” B8s debuted on the Galway Rally in February 1973. One was driven by Alec Poole (+ Fennell) registered 44 JRI and the other by Mick Dolan (+ Blaney?). The former retired with a blown engine and the latter with suspension problems. (MN 15-2-73 and 22-2-73)

Both were entered on the Circuit of Ireland but Alec Poole changed his entry. Mick Dolan and Jim O’Brien’s car sported a ‘shortened “Monaco-type” nose. On one stage they had to use a narrow tyre on the back when one of the 14 in wide ones punctured.
(MN 3-5-73)

Can they be identified?
The Dolan car was ex Richie Heeley , will check on the Poole car , pretty sure it came from the UK.

Thanks Chris. I too found that on one of the other forums. The Poole car was the yellow one with the quoted reg. Isn't it always the case that I end up chasing the more difficult one. I don't have a reg for it. I have picked up a (costly) kit that will need the front chopped off to make the "Monaco-type" nose. Mick told me that it came with two separate nose cones but someone who remembers the car said it looked like someone got an angle grinder to the front of it !!!

In the interest of research I have just watched the DVD 35 years of Donegal Rally.

In the section for the 1973 rally their is a brief COLOUR clip of the Mick Dolan Chevron with the cut off nose.

The car is a standard red with a black roof and and black lower section on the back.

How many Ballycraine?? Bugles still exist and is Jim O'Brien a relation?

Cheers
Chris

Ballyraine Hotel was the original name of the rally HQ. Since been renamed the Mount Errigal Hotel.
The Ballyraine Bugle was the first attempt at on event rally bulletins which evolved into the Pattersons Rally Bulletins we all became so familiar with in this country.
I have that DVD at home , so guess what James will be looking at tonight !!!!
Chris you have once again proved the worth of this forum. thanks to you and a number of others who have been more than helpful. On a more general note I am getting enthusiastic about what new models will be in the display next Easter.

The photo has generated a lot of hot air on facebook but not one solitary piece of information so far.

Thanks to Chris for the tip on the 35 years of Donegal DVD. Fleeting glimpse of the car but enough to see the layout etc. Being a racing car there was no provision for a spare wheel so it was explained to me that it was bolted to the rear of the car. I had asumed that this was flat like one would see on say the bonnet of some landrovers but interestingly they seem to have some form of pocket within the bodywork into which they slotted the wheel standing in a fashion you might see on some old yank tanks who covered the wheels with fancy covers. Again there was a little signwriting but I am still short of a reg number .
Thanks again for all the help

I managed to buy a "facelift" model Talbot Lotus sunbeam on ebay which are a pretty rare "bird" for conversion into a COI car. I bought it from Flavio Vineis a man with whom I have dealt in the past. He has emailed me a list of models /kits etc he has for sale. There are 800 models on the list including Irish models. If anyone is interested drop me an email at james@cjandco.net.. Not sure if its ok to cut and paste it on the forum. Over to Brian on that one.

Im sure Flavio wont mind James. Just create a new thread in the for sale section along with details on how to contact him.

Or better yet, convince him to join up and he can post the list himself. Smile

87 COI Sierra should be straight forward, Hannu's 86 Quattro sport already half done upstairs, Aris Black Beauty 1982 also can be converted from the Trofeu model but it needs wider rear arches, McRae 83 Rothmans Ascona also doable.
