Note the careful use of the word represented.
When you fill in the application form-rather than the HTP you you will see the clarification/rationale
Hi Jeremy

I was wondering if that was the case - but do they mean original manufacturer or manufacturer of the car in question?
e.g. Lister Jaguar = Harper, GT40 = Gelscoe etc.
Or is it that a Shelby Cobra should say AC cars?

Luckily I'm passing this onto a certified FIA person, who is no doubt aware of the subtleties of their language!
