Purchased by me in 1987 in very poor condition, its full restoration to side draught specification was completed in 2000. In 2002 with 7 class wins and a class 2nd it won the UK HSCC Classic Racing Cars championship for its class (D) beating the down draught cars, driven by James Long.
Since then it has had a much quieter life coming out 14 times the last one being the Oulton Park Gold Cup last August with no issues and a 7th place.
It has never been crashed during my ownership.
It does not have a chassis number but has MSA HTP papers.
It is mentioned in Bernard Cowdrey’s book Formula 3 on the rear cover (No. 1) and on pages 133 (No.66) and 137 (No.1).
I built and have always overhauled the engine myself, with machining and balancing outsourced. It has the correct Hewland Mk6 gearbox (H6-801) always overhauled by Peter Smith. During its restoration the chassis frame was by Peter Denty.
Whilst it ran faultlessly at Oulton Park in August with new belts, extinguisher, doughnuts and oil, for reliability and peace of mind it deserves a full strip and rebuild.
It is located in England and offered for sale with a small parts package.
