ASTRA RNR1

Good morning or afternoon everyone. first time on this site and looking for some information. working on a Roger Nathan Astra RNR1, looking for a few parts, I'm from the US and haven't found much over here. I've read the post on the Astra RNR1 &2 on the site. a lot of good info, any help in this quest would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
Pete Simon

Welcome a Pete. I’ve copied your request to Historic Racing today, in the hope that some one looking on here or there may be able to help.

The first question anyone will ask is- What Parts? Given the rarity of the car, I’m guessing anything specifically made for the model is going to be difficult!

Perhaps you could give more detail on the thread started on HRT, please.

Hi Pete. Just try to help, and quite aware you're not talking about this coupé:
https://newsdanciennes.com/2016/07/1...-mans-classic/
You mentioned crossply, I had the opportunity to detail this car thoroughly when it was campaigned by its former owner Marc Faggionato from Monaco in our endurance series. I recall he said the main body was restored - or was is remade?- by a Riva specialist. I guess you can read french under torture, it is raced at Le Mans Classic on a regular basis nowadays. Two "good" reasons: rare, pretty, interesting car and one of the drivers is the boss of ACO… bro' from a former prime minister… If this doesn't help, please dont yell at me. For the reason I'm fragile for the excuse I'm French! By the way, what a f-nice car!

There is also mention of the car (RNR1 and RNR2) in the chassis thread here at tenths: https://tentenths.com/forum/showthread.php?t=102983

Edit: just re-read the opening post and noticed you are already aware of that thread.

Pete, it won't be difficult for you to get in touch with Marc F, he is on FB and races his F3 classic in France. A real enthusiast and sportsman. Nice guy.
