Notes on the cars:

  1. Elfin 600B/E [7122] (Larry Perkins): New in January 1971 to Garry Campbell (Sydney, New South Wales) and raced in Australian F2 in 1971, using a Ford twin cam engine. For the Tasman series in early 1972, the car was fitted with a 2-litre Waggott TC4V engine which had been acquired from the estate of Glyn Scott. It was then taken to Japan for the JAF GP in May 1972, where it was fitted with Leo Geoghegan's Waggott engine and was raced that weekend by Geoghegan. It was then returned to F2 specification and raced by Larry Perkins in the 1972 F2 series. The Elfin Register records this car going to Damon Beck in NSW for 1973, and later owned by Bob Muir and Peter Clarke. By 2002, it was with Peter Clark, and was sold by him via Harry Galloway to Geoff Russell. At that time the car was dismantled and in storage at Galloway’s workshop at Little Hartley in New South Wales. In 2023, Russell was restoring the car to Ford twin cam form.
