Paul Hawkins’ Lola T70 Mk3 Chev rounds Repco Hill bend during the 1967 Surfers Paradise 12 Hour enduro on 3 September…

‘Hawkeye’ shared the 5 litre Chev V8 engined car with its owner, Jackie Epstein, to third place behind the victorious Greg Cusack/Bill Brown Scuderia Veloce Ferrari 250LM and Alan Hamilton/Glynn Scott Porsche 906.

I did a quickie on this race a while back but it’s now a 3800 word feature thanks to the upload of many photographs on social media by Peter Maslen and Lindsay Ross (http://www.oldracephotos.com/content/home/) and discovery amongst my magazine collection of the September 1967 issue of ‘Racing Car News’, which has a beautifully written race report by Des White- click here to read it; https://primotipo.com/2018/08/28/1967-surfers-paradise-6-hour/

      Cheers Rob,
      A great bunch of shots aren’t they? I only went to Surfers circuit once, for the 1973 Glynn Scott Memorial Trophy Gold Star meeting and absolutely loved the place- a circuit we really did not want to lose but completely swallowed by the enormous growth of the Gold Coast.
