2015 National Rally photo gallery & video footage

In typical Gordon Lindner style, there is a fantastic photo gallery from the Lorne National Rally at https://picasaweb.google.com/ozhealey/AustinHealeyNationalRally2015?noredirect=1 .  Gordon took a lot of photos over the 4 days so hes only posted the best 464 photos !

Invest 3 minutes at https://vimeo.com/125553871 on the fantastic video footage of Healeys on the Great Ocean Road, you won't regret it !  Thank you to Ben Goad and the rest of the Hoverscope team.  If you were there, see if you can spot yourself, if you weren't there, now you know how good it was.  Either way, you might be inspired to make it to the 2016 National Rally in Victor Harbour, South Australia starting 8th April 2016.  Keep your eye on http://www.austinhealeysa.com.au/ later in the year for details.

December Inspiration
 
Take a look at these couple of fantastic period Healey/Australiana scenes from the movie On The Beach with Ava Gardner and Gregory Peck.  It was a strange choice to dub a V8 exhaust note into the first scene when they had one of the best ever exhaust notes avaiable from the same source fabulous visuals.  The second scene shot from Pt Lonsdale looking across the heads to Pt Nepean, Portsea, etc is about as good as '50s Australiana gets, I love it.  Go to http://www.tubechop.com/watch/4309440 andhttp://www.tubechop.com/watch/4309457
 
From October
Check out the Jackson, Duffy and Goldsmith Big Healey Group S action from Retrofest 2014 at Sydney Motorsport Park, Eastern Creek back in May.  Go to http://vimeo.com/106238742 for the 14th September edition of SBS' Speedweek program.  Drag to minute 47:00 on the slider to go straight to the start of the Group S race.
 
From September
