Patrick Watts raced the Julian May car at Snetterton in 1987 as (I think) a one off. What I do remember is that he made it do things through the "proper" Russell Chicane that it really shouldn't have been capable of...

According to a 1986 Bathurst yearbook I've got, one of the Longman cars went to Australia- an RS1600i described as a 1984 ex-Longman car was entered by Kiwis Andrew Bagnall & Ted Jarvis under the Motorsport Pacific banner but retired early on- (Motorsport Pacific also owned an ex-Rouse Sierra which was fielded at Bathurst that year by the Mark Petch team). The book suggests the car ran in the 1984 and 85 BTCC before being bought by Motorsport Pacific.

There's a photo of the back of the grid which shows a rear view of the car and it's in a red white and blue livery- my memory's a bit hazy on this after nearly 20 years, but I think they were the colours of Richard Belcher's 1985 car

Just dug out some 80'S BTCC results, and I'm sure you're right about it being a one-off- Phil Dowsett was the cars most regular driver that year. Watts had driven for the team regularly in 1985

The 1985 Brooklyn cars were driven by Hodgetts and John Morris, with an occasional third car for Alex Moss. In 86, after Hodgetts moved on to race Toyota Corollas, they ran a single-car for Paul Taft

No i havent posted this before under a different name.

I have since discovered that the car i own is the Julian May car, and that it has had a few drivers, Phil Dowsett drove the car in 85, in 86 the car only entered a handfull of events due to Julian May's very limited budget, and was driven by Patrick watts, in 87 the car was driven in nearly a full season by Richard Belcher.

History of the car itself is still very sketchy, i know the shell was given to Julian May by Ford Motor Company, its the rest of the car that i know very little about. From the looks of most of the parts they are the same as Richard Longmans car. I have a telephone number for Julian May but as of yet i cannot get hold of him.

I realise this is an old post, but do any of you know how to contact Phil Dowsett. I have his BTCC winning Corolla and am desperately searching for early history to get a historic log book.
