|Originally built in
1966 and debuted by its driver Norman Abbott at a November Brands Hatch
meeting where it ran in the midfield. Described in contemporary reports
as "projectile like" it was 5 inches (12.5 cms) slimmer than the
contemporary Lotus 41. Suspension was outboard with wishbones at the front
and a top link and radius rods at the rear. It looks as if there was an
"external" extension on the top of the spaceframe tub for the
top radius rod to attach to, this is reminiscent of the later Chevron B34.
It would seem there was only ever a singleton chassis built, apparently
it cost £1400 (a new "name" chassis would have cost in excess
of £2000). It is not clear how often it raced but its moment of glory
came in early 1970 at a slippery Forward Trust round at Silverstone when
Abbott finished an impressive second behind the works Lotus of Dave Walker.
