Thanks Allen, the main thing once you have this level of data is keeping it up to date. That is the hardest part!

Steve how long have you been researching all this? and where did you manage to get all the info from? Its really interesting to see who had what and when. Your next Task Steve is to jot down EVERY time each car has recorded at every hillclimb event......... over the last 30 years! I expect the thread up by MONDAY MORNING!

In answer to your question it has taken me just over a year to firstly get the basis of the research (the initilal chassis numbers and owners) then add in the rest of the details.

As for my next task! Well my comments would be something along the lines of sex and travel!

PS Gould chassis haven't been used in hillclimbing for 30 years yet!

Steve, While going through some old Autosports recently I came across a short item on the Gould-Terrapin Mk1 of 1979-80, presumably one of David Gould's earliest projects, which doesn't appear on your list?

Correct, as the basic Terrapin was designed by Alan Staniforth and David just made some 'minor adjustments' to that design I didn't include it.

Ah, not pure enough Gould then. Quite a few 'adjustments' from the sound of it though.

There was a Terrapin that ended up with an 1100cc BD? ontop of the Mini gearbox. This was followed by the Gould Terrapin which had a longitudinal 1600cc BDA and Hewland box. This is described in some detail by Allan Staniforth in 'Race and Rallycar Source Book'.

What about the car Richard Fry had built originally with the Hart and later a Judd CV engine? I think it was the second one built. I'm sure I've got something in my notes suggesting it was heavily damaged at Shelsley a few years ago when it was being shared by the chap who used to run a Porsche GT2. Unfortunatly I'm not on the web at home so I'm typing this from memory at work and I can't remember his name. Roland Jones possibly?
Didn't RH430 also end up with a Gould rear end? Was this from the Brown car's original 2.0 set up? Coincidentally I'm so glad to have found this forum. It seems I'm not the only " rivet counter " in the hillclimb paddock!

I've updated the list with what changes I have so far. I'll double check on the Richard Fry car but I seem to remember it was a full Ralt RT37 which may well have been given a Gould number?

You could well be right, but I definatly remember Sean Gould driving it, although the front wing was a full F3 and not a speed event version, at least untill they fitted the V8. It does beg the question of what's the difference between a Gould modified RT37 with Gould wings and a Judd compared to a full GR37 though! ( laughs ). Any answers to that one Steve?

I'll dig out a few old programs over the weekend and see what it was called when it had the CV in it. Sean enthused about the turn in and traction, so it may well have been used mainly for development work.

I've had a look through back issues of Speedscene and the Richard Fry car is most definatly refered to as a Gould GR37 both in 1999 and in 2000 when it was co driven by Richard Jones. It was heavily damaged at Shelsley on June 10th 2000, and my notes state that it was then sold on to Roger Moran. The history of the car is well known since then. I seem to remember getting this information during a conversation with Roger when he first acquired the car, but it could be worth double checking. Hope this helps clarify it's history.
