Miker should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
With Peter we were running the Tom's motor which was a little top heavy, and unfortunately, we qualified 2nd for his first race in F3 and he thought it was all easy, and as we all know it is not, from there on although we worked very hard, the other circuits did not suit the caracteristics of the engine/chassis, the lighter Volkswagens and Alfas had the edge.
I ran TB from Manaco on. We switched from Alfa to VW for the last part of the season.
The only problem with the SA4 against the Ralts was the pitch sensativity, it had more downforce but it varied a lot with bumps etc. and it was very sensative to small set up changes.

It was about 1982 when we first spoke - about JoBo's McLaren M7A if I recall correctly.

Yes, thats right and then when I was in the States, we talked about the Lola 5000 car that had been made into a short oval car and then restored to original.

Didnt the originl Anson project fold at the end of 1977 and Gary Anderson was forced to go back to F1 as a mechanic, I think with Mclaren?

I'm just into some early '82 A/Spurts and there's mention of Richard T being exasperated with the Anson team. Seems the car was ready very late, and the whole thing wasn't what he expected. Anyone know anymore? Was it the case that while Gary Anderson was talented designer, his organisational abilities were less good perhaps?

I could have this wrong but I think it's not that the car was ready very late & more that the car was still being assembled whilst being scrutineered at Silverstone for the season's first race.

RICHARD.T should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Hi
all the pre season testing promises etc never happened and the car was still being put together as I was sitting in it as quolifying had started. The scruiteneer was standing in the garage, ticket in hand.
(Richard Branson was also in the garage, as we had got him to come along with the view to him sponsoring me)
I got a letter saying; the agreements like me being the no 1 driver in the team were no longer going to be honered, they started to argue over the agreement as to number of new tyres per race etc and I felt all that had been agreed over the winter, they were trying to change and go back on.
Also, I felt my money was being used to develp the car, as it was not initially as quick as the ralt, rather than go out and wining races. I was quicker in my old self run Ralt and I no longer trusted the team to deliver what had been agreed.

The SA6 was a very good car, but with Gary leaving Anson's it became very difficult to get any help from the factory. In the end I returned the car to the factory for repair as the tub had delaminated, and the new owners repainted it and sold it to the USA as a new SuperVee. I never get my money back.
Happy Days!!
Mike, check your PM's please.

A late '82 A/spurt says all 3 works 82 cars were sold to Tomas Lowis von Menar for German F3 I presume? Anyone know who used 'em?

Regarding the German F3 Championship in 1983 there were Tomas von Löwis in his SA3-Toyota, Rudy Seher in an also Toyota powered SA3 and Andy Wietzke using an Anson SA3 with Alfa Romeo engine.

Wietzke's car was SA3-05
A/S 12.5.83 p. 54 says Seher's car was "ex Zamanga"; Zamanga had SA3-02 in 1982;
Richard Hamann raced 02 in 1984

Anson SA1 at Shelsley Walsh in 1978. It came to me as a complete car with Vegantune Twin Cam F3 engine in the Autumn of 1977. Was immediately run for its owner Richard Ward at a Donington Sprint where the Twin Cam cried enough after half a lap.

A 1.5 litre TC on TJ fuel injection was then acquired from Dave Brodie that had run in one of his Run Baby Run creations.

It was sold in 1979 to Eryl Davies who ran it with an 1100cc BD engine until he unfortunately died.

Some years later I heard that Richard Barnes had bought it and was languishing at his SPA Design operation.
