Sabrejet should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid

I'm just trying to put together a history of each Gould hill climb car and it seems that Chassis 2 (the Fry/Moran/etc.) car was originally a 2.5 Hart-engined car for Tom Brown. By mid-season 1997 it was powered by a 3.5 Judd CV and with Richard Fry. Contemporary reports confirm the first two GR37s were Hart-engined originally, but Fry's car may have been based on an RT36 tub (can anyone confirm?).

Following its Shelsley crash in 2000, the car apparently went back to Gould and when I saw it again in August of that year it was mainly in bare carbon fibre finish, with only the rear wing showing signs of its previous colours. It was still with Richard Fry at that point.

I think this clears things up a bit, but I do wonder if Gould re-chassised the car?

Thanks for the reply Roy - have seen your car many times, first with Tony Marsh/Sean Gould driving and later with Groves/Ranson and Jouhar/Smith.

Whilst in Martin Groves' ownership it had the high airbox fitted ('GR37B-style), but still with the air filters poking out of the engine cover: I often wondered why they didn't go for a full high airbox intake?

Ideas?

Australian Gould

AutoAction April 11-17 2007 notes Andrew Howell winning the over 2000cc Formula Libre class in Round 2 of the Victoria hillclimb championship at Gippsland Park in a Gould GR55B. Which chassis is this?

My first guess is that an attempt was made to balance the air flow between the trumpets i.e. the rears would in all likelyhood, receive more air due to external air flow where the front trumpets under the original bodywork would be reliant on being fed from the engine bay. However, the present added high air box has limited advantage.

The design of an airbox is critical if any gains are to be made. For an enclosed airbox to give any advantage it requires to be sealed and flow testing conducted to ensure adequate and equal air flow/feed to all trumpets.
