  • Rally New Zealand photos

    I have been asked to post a few of my Rally New Zealand photos on this forum, so rather than post them in the rally model thread (where there are a few already) I'm going to start a new thread. I have photos going back to 1981, and I plan to post some of the better ones over the next few weeks/months/years for the enjoyment of all the rally fans here......

    If anyone has any particular requests, let me know.

    I'm going to start with 1997, and the first bunch of photos are of Neal Bates and Coral Taylor in the Celica GT-4. Neal and Coral had a good rally finishing 6th overall behind 4 works drivers and Possum Bourne.









    More 1997 photos to come tomorrow...

          Thanks so much KiwiRallyFan! Great shots, did you take all of these yourself? If so excellent photography. Keep up the great work. I think you should put some pics up aswell Mal. I would put some of mine up but there no where as good as these..

            Woohooo!!!!!!

            FANTASTIC photos straight up! There are so many possibilities in decalling some Trofeu or Minchamps Celica GT4s to make new Bates cars.....

            I can't wait until the WRCars start coming, or Possum's Group A and WRCars.....

            I may now have a new favourite thread....!

            Thanks KiwiRallyFan! Keep 'em coming!!!! You certainly have an appreciative (if smallish) audience, but we make alot of noise!!!!!

              Excelent photos KiwiRallyFan. When lachlan is up for the 2am feedings later this year he can do us all a set of the Bates Sillycar decals. That would be a good inclusion to any collection.

                  Already thinking about it mate . It shouldn't be too hard to do either. If you have any more shots of Bates Celica can you please post them as every angle helps. Also its a white car so it should be possible.

                  Could we use this as the base car?

                    But I still have to get one to keep in the WRC Castrol colours first........who said that collecting these 1:43 scale models was cheap?

                        Thanks for all the favorable comments. All the pics I post are my own, and most of them will not have been published before. I think I may have a couple more of the Bates GT4, I'll check this evening. There will be more pics posted this evening from the same rally, so keep looking....

                          Nice photos

                          I'm wondering do you have a photo of Colin Mcrae's WRC car from 1998, as I have the front left panel off his car.
