Where it gets confusing is the whole period FIA-sanctioned event, as cars ran at FIA events, but the actual race they ran in in period weren't FIA - not confusing...
I saw that Mike Whitaker was running wires at Goodwood which seems a bit strange, I have the car on 7 inch rims at present and don't want to go any wider, my main target is to run the car in competition on European rallies which is what I built the car for, winning a few high profile events, but then my papers were refused as were many others and I will never butcher the car to comply.

Best thing is to speak to Nigel, as I know when I was involved a few years ago it was either narrow body and slim wheels or wide body and wider wheels, but I think they managed to find some historical evidence of Griffs in period with slightly wider wheels, so a compromise was made.
European rallies will be good, not sure how hot and loud it might get in the cockpit though. I have a great picture of my late Dad at the Tholt-y-Will hill climb and it looks great seeing a Griff on the road, sliding around houses!!

The Redex Trophy race was a FIA sanctioned International event.

The FIA Calendrier Sportif International for 1965 shows that the Guards International Trophy race at Brands Hatch on 30.8.1965 had two FIA sanctioned events, Sports cars - the main event, The Guards International Trophy and GT cars - The Redex Trophy.

The Redex Trophy was run for GT cars complying with Appendix 'J' (1965) Group 3 to the International Sporting Code.

That was a bone of contention with the FIA several years back.They claimed that the actual race the Griff took part in was not FIA sanctioned,despite the Event being titled as such.They claimed the sanctioning was only for the F2 or F3 race or whatever it was.But we did get there eventually!!!!
Also we were using 8.5 inch wheels with on minor arch mods,mainly to the bottom front arch/sill areas.These mods were the same on both cars we won the Spa six hour races.
