    This is not White Lightning...either Pithon or Stingray.
    Show it to Tom Wood...2 sec later you get the buggy mechanical details and the bios on the push team.
    Pika has enjoyed his walking, talking ecyclopedic knowledge of the sport as much as the rest of you. Value the knowledge!

    That's not 1980. The photo is in the 1977 Buggy Book, so it is likely Race Day 1976.

    The PiKA pusher looks like Tom Binney.

    I think it was labeled as 1980 because it came from a scan of the 1980 buggy book. The other similar images in the 1980's album say so explicitly. I'll move it

    FWIW, it's in BOTH the 1977 and the 1980 Buggy Books.

    I checked with Bob Russell, who is PiKA Buggy guy from the mid-70's, and he confirms that it is 1976 Finals, and that is Tom Binnie pushing Hill 5, and the buggy is Tiger Shark II.

    3rd place in this photo was PhiKap, John Lewandowski pushing Hill 5.
