He raced the car at various meetings during the 90's and laid the car up after business failure. The engine and suspension modifications along with the fibreglass wings. bonnet and bootlid support this. As the engine was burning oil due to a scored cylinder when he acquired it. the last owner commissioned CAS Engineering (who carried out machining work for Classic Racecraft) in 2009. to bore and deck another block. then build it all up with new mains and big end bearings. new pistons. Kent cam and high pressure oil pump. Hardened valve inserts were installed. so no fuel additive is necessary. The whole assembly was lightened and balanced and installed along with a new clutch.
