*Vale Bob Booth http://www.motormarques.com/drivers-and-cars/202-booth-bob-bob-booth-specialStephen Harrison has written to inform me that "Bob unfortunately passed away last week but before he did the car was run at Eddington (a few problems) and Myrniong. Bob did get to Eddington but was too ill to go to Myrniong, however he did see the video captured on the day and get to see and hear the car running fast and sweetly." ** Richard McWhannell wrote from Auckland:"I have seen that car from other angles. I think it may be an Abernathy Brooklands replica? Have a look at this ... Bill Conoulty who I mentioned to you: http://www.austinsevenfriends.com/Bruce/The%20Conoulty%20Special%20Austin%20Comet.htmand http://bruce-white.austinharris.co.uk/Musso%20(or%20Conoulty%20Comet%20Special)%20Bathurst%20and%20Penrith%20Races%201938.htm "***   From Tony Press:      The car is a replica Austin 7 Australian GP car, with many original parts, based on Captain Arthur Waites wining car.
