The Focus Ford must be the Focus-Ford Mk IV 1962 formula junior. When FJ was replaced by F2/F3 in 1964, the Swedish FJ championship was continued as a F2 championship allowing cars under the previous FJ regulations to run unaltered. The Focus Mk IV was originally built for and raced by Örjan Atterberg, but he had a fatal accident with the car in Helsinki in 1963. The car was then raced by P-O Zetterström in the Swedish "F2" championship from 1964 onwards.

The car now resides in Norway and we will hopefully see it back in historic racing this season.

Focus did build another single seater after that for Formula 3, but to my knowledge it was never completed in period although it has now got FIA papers and appear now and then equipped with a body looking somewhat like a BT21. Actually AB Sportscars in Stockholm, who manufactured the Focus cars, used the frame of the new car as a storage shelf.

1964/65 De Tomaso F4
1964 Gemini Mk IV A
1965/6 LDS-Ford Mk 5 (was this an F2 or a F Libre?)

PS did either the Conrero F2 or the BWA-Lancia ever appear? Wasn't the Lova-DKW an FJnr car?

LDS MK 5?!?

I think you mean the pair of BT10-based LDS; one fitted with a 1600cc twin-cam and one with a 2-litre Climax. This is South Africa so they were just racing cars, nothing as specific as a F2. And "Mk 3" or "Mk 5" is a designation that was applied later by historians, not by the builder.

The first one was probably built with a view to running in the Gold Star category for 1600cc engines that was introduced after South African F1 moved to 3000cc but that's pure speculation.

I have split this thread and moved the posts on the Conrero which has developed into the specific Canadian series discussion, as per Allen's suggestion, here:-

Thanks John. I realised I'd badly diverted this thread and that was a bit unfair to Kevin and others.

The Lova DKW was in fact a belgian car and already totally outpaced in 1961, was entered in 1965 at Grand Prix des Frontières by Roger Beguint, a garagist.

Steve, I'm about 99% certain there's a pic of that in Hodges' A-Z of Formula Racing Cars. The first pic in the book in fact! - I'll check tonight.

A-Z of racing cars

You might find one or two cars here:
http://www.dlg.speedfreaks.org/archive/cars/cars.php
The Abarth 232 is there allright.

It was a sort of "youth sin" before I got involved into something else; the data is unchanged for at least 10 years and might contain errors. I intended it for personal use only but someone convinced me that it would be of use for some of you out there...
