Motor racing in 1963
Photos sent in by listener - motor racing in Levin 1963, "Denis Holme had just won the premier race of the meet and had pulled off the track just by where we were standing. So we walked across the track, congratulated him and had a good squiz at his car at the same time. How times have changed!" says David in Whanganui.

Taking you to the golden age of New Zealand motor sport… to those days in the 60s and 70s when the names McLaren, Hulme and Amon grabbed headlines around the world. Chris Amon and Scott McLaughlin speak about driving fast. And Max Rutherford joins us to talk about his work and new book Paddock to Podium - The Mechanics View.
