  • Hi, As I was browsing to find the whereabouts/owner of this chassis, I came across the website and thought that you might be interested in some history from the time that Dawnay Racing owned the car, post-Essex Wire Corporation.
    I have one or two pictures of the car, some with myself included, as I looked after and transported the car during 1966/67 up to the retirement from the LeMans 24Hrs (Accident)
    Kind Regards
