Here are some pictures of my 1965 Renault Gordini (R1134). Only 30 of these were brought into Australia in 1965/66.
|Read the Road test for the R1134 from the magazine AUSTRALlAN MOTOR SPORTS, November, l965
and WHEELS, UK 1965
|From L to R R10 (1967), R8G (1965), Dauphine(1958),4CV(1958).
The R10 is no longer after it was rolled by one of my sons. No one hurt thankfully
|This is a very original R1135 which was at a French car day in Sydney around 1993.
|The Immaculately restored R1135 of Simon Fitzpatrick. The car resides in South Australia and was completed in 2001||These yellow cars were madee in Australia in 1969/70 as they were made in the yellow of the hire car company ("Kays Rentacar") that sponsored the Renault rally team in Australia. I have one of the siblings of this car to be restored.|
|Last turn into the straight in 3rd gear.(4000RPM 90kph?)||Pretending that this is a rally||Side on in the last corner|
|This is not the place for a "burn out". Trying too hard to displace the 4CV.||Made it easy to overtake and the only chance I had.||NOT AGAIN!!! Only this time it was Suzie (Adam's 15 year old sister) at a driver training day Catalina Park November 1997. Once more back to the Body shop for 1998.|
|Native Dog Creek||Hen and Chicken Lane|
|Up the Dipper||Dusk decent||Somewhere up the hill|
Coming up the "Dipper" with Adam at the wheel and going down again at twilight. Adam came first in this event in his class. The engine and gearbox had a complete rebuild after this event in 1995. In 1995 at this event, the car broke a universal during the 1st to second gear change.
Once again the R8 with Adam at the wheel came first in the class with the "Frog" second.
