Frank Gardner ’67 Camaro
Frank Gardner had retired from openwheeler racing by ‘73 but the-then UK-based Australian nonetheless still made the trip home for that year’s Tasman Cup – he was also Lola’s development driver. Frank’s other gig was factory Camaro driver in the British Saloon Car Championship. He had just updated to a new Camaro ( tted with the 427 engine from Jane’s car) and was apparently gifted the older, earlier model, which he brought along for the Tasman support races. It was competitive down under, defeating Moffat’s Mustang in their second encounter at Pukekohe.
