I don’t have much knowledge of the car I’m afraid only what the guy I bought it from told me. Its left hand drive which I’m told is a bit of a rare thing???
I don’t know what year it is, maybe you’ll be able to date it from the photo of the VIN plate??
I bought the car from a racer up in Leicestershire in May last year, it was an angry buy as my race car broke & I’d booked a couple of events that I wanted to do. He told me that the builders doing some work on his house had seen this car in a garage. He went to see it & bought it. Apparently it had been built by a famous local racer, some sort of military guy, a lieutenant I think he said. He serviced it, put new Federal 595 RSR 195/50 ZR 15 82 W tyres on, brake pads, red top battery, water pump & cam belt & tensioners & did a track day at Cadwell Park.
It was not up to MSA regs so I’ve fitted race seat, fire system & harness. I did a sprint in May at Motorsport at The Palace at Crystal Palace & a raced it in CSCC Future Classic Series at Brands Hatch in June. It’s been stored ever since.
It has LEDA adjustable suspension all round, fibreglass front wings, nose panel & bonnet, Perspex side windows & rear screen, its a bit scruffy but a lot of fun to drive. I’m selling it as I don’t need two race cars & need the space.
