Mau­rie’s lit­tle motor car

Old Bike Australasia - - CLASSIC COB -

Else­where in this is­sue you will find an obit­u­ary to Mau­rie Pear­son, who passed away in May. Mau­rie was well known to all the clas­sic rac­ing folk as a scru­ti­neer, of­fi­cial and oc­ca­sional rider, but he also had a keen in­ter­est in cars and re­stored sev­eral from near wrecks. One such ex­am­ple is shown in the photo (left), with Mau­rie at Oran Park. The en­gine was sup­plied by John Sur­tees, whom Mau­rie knew well, and the car is now owned by Gra­ham Blanch. See you next is­sue, Pete
