MylesC should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Vixen F4

Does anyone have time sheets of vixen racing at an international event in the 1960's? I'm currently re-building an early imp-engined vixen and would be interested also in any period photos of these cars. Infact any info on them would be great!
Thank you, Myles

Hi Myles, by coincidence I'm also restoring an F4 car although mine is a JW4. I have a rebuild thread for mine here

http://forum.wscc.co.uk/forum/index....ead/?p=1088211

As part of my own research I've come across several mentions of the other F4 manufacturers including Vixen. Although I don't have any details for international meetings Vixens were raced in the UK and i have them listed for a couple of the F4 races at Brands Hatch, although it would appear they were raced much less frequently than either the Walker's and Tecno's.

23rd June 1968 - Brands Hatch
Pat Longhurst Vixen 650
Scott Williams Vixen 875 - Entered by Vixen Racing Cars
Bernard Unett Vixen 875 - Entered by Vixen Racing Cars

16th July 1967 - Brands Hatch
Nick Brittan Vixen 650 - Entered by Vixen Racing Cars
Antony Bottoms Vixen 650 - Entered by Vixen Racing Cars

I also have the following website links saved to various photos and details of Vixen cars, which you may find helpful if you haven't found them already.

There's also a bit of F4 info on this tentenths thread

Good luck with your rebuild, Mark

vixen vb4

Hi, how did you guys get on with the f4 rebuilds.

Im just about to start rebuilding a vixen vb4 formula four.

I'd be interested in any photos, and or pointers. mine has the imp engine and box.

Also have you managed to find any circuit racing that an F4 would be let out to play in.

Cheers


Graham

Hi 3 of my friends raced vixen F4 in the 60's Mike Wilds, Keith Norman and Julian May, I thinks thay were quite succesful, Julian May went onto sponser me in Clubmans and then BTCC with his Company Pegasus Finishing unfortunately Keith is no longer with us and I have not seen Mike or Julian for many years as I now live in Portugal.
