Fwiw, The RT1 featured in the big Spa accident pictured elsewhere is the Swedish owned, ex Blaton/Ledamun converted F3 car. I spoke to the owner, nice chap, he confirmed he bought it from James. Its in FAt spec, with BDA, and went well.

Though not as well as Martyn Donn's beautiful T760

He pranged the right front tub on a corner marker but kept going. Scratch one engine. The water pipe was crimped and the tub tweaked on the corner but not affecting the pick up. Back at the shop in Ont. I straightened the tub, more or less. We really had little equipment. I only worked on the car part time. Bruce brought me a sheet of aluminium and a cardboard pattern and asked me fabricate a 2nd front bulkhead. Using a friend's workshop I did so. It turned out the pattern was not quite right! Close but not right. It was still used and pop riveted over the original front bulkhead. Yipe!! So if you see this "fix" you will know it is chassis 95. Car was probably sold in Florida where Bruce now lives.
Is this it ?

I have a Ralt RT1 chassis number 145 which I run in atlantic spec.

I see the car mentioned a few times in this thread but wondered if anyone has any more information on the car and original drivers and livery for the car.

New late 78 Matt, to Bernard Hunter for UK FAtlantic in 1979. 1980 to David Duffield for similar, then to 'Oz for Charlie O'Brien. Always a lovely dark blue livery in Britain.

Only the tub of no 86 was destroyed in the fire as the car had been stripped down for an overhaul in preparation for the 1979 season. A new tub was purchased from Ralt and the car was rebuilt using all the original ancilliary parts. Kenny raced the car in RMC colours until May when the March 793 arrived. Kenny believes the old chassis plate would have been attached to the new tub.The car and lots of spares were sold at the end of 1979.

In the mid 70s I crewed an RT-1 for Ed Donnelly. He ran California west coast club, some Formula Atlantic and finished 3rd in the SCCA runoffs. Anyone know what became of the cars? ( there were 2).

Ralt RT1-144

I just acquired RT1-144, and couldn't be happier!

Purchased by Otis Chandler for his son Michael for the 1979 season in Mini Indy and the FSV series.

Looking for photos of the car in its original livery.

Thanks!
