The only 77 Tiga in the UK, I'm pretty sure, was the Rob Wilson car. He used it first half of that year, then swapped it for a Reynard. It wasn't very successful so didn't appear in many/any MN/AS reports. I assume its this car you have, Bob?

Rob Wilson wrote round by round reports for the NZ racing rag MotorAction of his FF2000 years.Was always a good read.

I knew Rob very well during that period. I'd love to read those articles if they still exist in any form anywhere, particularly around July/August 1977 when he switched from the Tiga to the Reynard.

I can help with those reports, please let me know. Rob wrote in "Motoraction" from late 1975 till early 81.
