Graham Adelman from Virginia USA has also confirmed his intent to make a return visit with both his Ferrari 246T and BRM P126 cars which he brought to the 2008 Tasman Revival meeting. Both cars will be shipped from the UK where they are cared for by Hall and Hall at Bourne.
The Ferrari was driven by Chris Amon to finish second in the 1968 Tasman Series with wins at Levin and in the NZGP at Pukekohe and a very close second to Jim Clark in the AGP at Sandown. After a 40 year absence from Australia it was driven by Rob Hall to win the 2008 Tasman Revival race at Eastern Creek and should be a front runner again this year. The V12 BRM which Graham drove himself in 2008 was driven by both Bruce McLaren and Richard Attwood in 1968 and scored a win at Teretonga in McLaren’s hands.
