#56 Allan Symons Will he make it #56 Allan Symons No he didn't
#41 James Pong #14 Mick Rickerby
Night into first corner Night lining them up
Night main straight #18 Harry under tow
#1 Allan Symons & family #12 Alan Beckhurst
Thanks Arthur for filling in the missing name for this driver
Arthur also mentioned that he later bought this car and repainted it 
yellow with a black stripe but still retained the #12. 

Arthur's first outing in his newly acquired FJ Holden earned him 3rd place
and earned Alan the prize money as the cheque was made out to the former 
owner. I think I'd  take the place over the prize money Arthur !
#18 Harry #22 Bob Carr
#22 Bob Car (driving by touch) #23, #77, #87 & #44 get into a tangle.
