Bryan Miller should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I feel we are really starting to get somewhere now.

Information just faxed to me from Ian Rimmer in the U.K. thanks Ian.

On a Motor Racing Developments letterhead dated 22nd March 1972 , and signed by Ralph Bellamy as Chief Designer .
The following.

The rollover bars on the following racing cars comply to FIA Specification , article 297 of the FIA regulations 1972.

BT35/48
BT35/49
BT35/50
BT35/51
BT35/52 , the last added in pencil.

So now we are looking for even more of these critters.
As up to now the last we had was BT35-44, and I have a seperate note re. a BT35-47

Bryan.

Bryan,
Reference the 1972 MRD letter on BT35's up to #52. My BT36-10 has an updated rollover bar with horizontal head rest barand support plate. I assume that is the new FIA reg. arcticle 297 that was required in 72. I am wondering if these BT35's (#48-#52)would be F3 cars req. FIA compliance?

phdm.

Thank you , I have nothing on BT35-10 , given underneath all the incorrect add ons , it looks like it may be a proper FB car from new , I have one name associated with the car , but that is 1990's and only in the USA.

Bryan.

A little extension of BT35s in Canada FB series

In 1971 June [Edmonton]
we have
Al Justason and Tom Morre in BT35s.
So these are cars with original owners I guess.
[Justason retains his in 72]

By the Mont Tremblant race in July we also have
Brian Robertson in an Opert BT35 [perhaps also raced at Edmonton]
and Maurice McCaig in a BT35

Thanks Chris.

That reminded me to go look at my earlier post on some of these.
So, Al Justason into 1972.
Tom Moore June 1971 ,

July, Mt Tremblant , Opert/ Robertson , still in Sept 1971.
July as above Maurice McCraig.

Sept, 1971 Ray Folland .
Oct. 1971 , Alan Lader
Oct. 1971 , Maurice McCraig.
One would suspect BT35-10 will be one of these, but which.?

BT35's , It is not that I have a preference for them, just fascination.

If we assume [ bad I know ] , that we are trying to sort out at least 51 cars, BT35-1 to BT35-52 , less BT35-13 .

Lets see where we are , in regards either a report in period or current.
Corrections happily taken.

BT35-1 TO BT35-10 all mentioned in despatches.
BT35-11/12/14 nothing.
BT35-15 , Prob Ian Rimmer U.K.
BT35-16/17/18 , nothing
BT35-19 USA.
BT35-20/21 , nothing.
BT35-22 UK.
BT35-23 Nothing
BT35-24 I believe in US.
BT35-25 nothing.
BT35-26 USA.
BT35-27 I believe USA.
BT35-28 UK
BT35-29 nothing
BT35-30 Sweden 1971
BT35-31 and 32 poss. same owner in USA.
BT35-33 Mathews US.
BT35-34 nothing
BT35-35 UK. in 1990's
BT35-36 Aust. since 1972.
BT35-37/38/39/40 nothing.
BT35-41 U.S.
BT35-42 / -43 nothing
BT35-44 now US.
BT35-45 /46 nothing
BT35-47 U.K.
BT35-48/49/50/51/52 nothing.

Two we dont know about are a BT35 F3 in a Swiss museum, advised by phdm privately, and Maverick motorsport have a pretty sad looking basket case for sale on racecarsdirect.

Have I missed any.????

I would think that a few will still be lurking around in sad states or totalled in Italy, probably old F3's, and quite a few went to Sweden in period.

I expect all the gaps filled in by morning please.
Bryan.

Some more digging in Canadian race results for 1973 gives us the following updates on Brabhams

At Westwood, 27th May 1973
BT35s
Scott Mackenzie
Cam MacKenzie
Al Justason

At Edmonton Scott Mackenzie hurts himself in a shunt and the car passes later in the season to Rick Forest [who wins at Gimli R6, and places 2nd at Mosport, R7]

At Debert, R5, Roos races an Opert BT35, but at Mosport R7, he has a new BT40

Suppose I had better add a little confusion to the debate

I am the proud owner of BT35X-1, the late Sir Nicholas Williamson's hillclimb car.

I found the bits rusting away in the shed of a house that was being cleared, following a tip off from an acquaintance; the poor car was in a bit of a state as you can see from the pics.

I acquired the car along with a spare space frame and a few other bits. I can’t remember the number of the other space frame for certain, but I think it might have been BT35-17. I swapped this space frame, for bits that I needed to rebuild BT35X-1, with a chap who planned to rebuild it into a complete car, although I don’t know for certain if he actually did.

The spare space frame had been much modified at some point, the top rails of the engine bay were tapered quite sharply towards the rear of the car, rather than being parallel as they are on X1, and the engine mounts were quite different. I don’t know what engine had been used in this car but it certainly was not one of the ubiquitous Ford derivatives. All of the running gear of this car had been used in the construction of a space framed Mk1 Escort special saloon race car, which I also acquired at the time, and still own.

During the rebuild of BT35X-1 I started a dialogue with Sir Nicholas and I retain the letters that he wrote to me on the subject. The plan was to re-unite him with the car once it was finished. Sadly he passed away before the car was complete.

I am rather busy with other activities these days, but sooner or later I will re-unite the car with the hills it was built to compete on.

Hi Chris,
Please could you confirm the chassis plate number for your BT35X. I am not sure if the correct format is BT35X-#XX?
