You've obviously read post 9 on the History Archive regarding the main differences between the RNR1 and RNR2. Interesting that chassis #035 isn't mentioned, so may be worth posting the latest info you've found on there as well. A lot of historians read those threads. It's amazing what they come up with at times!

Thanks for all the help
Not sure how to contact him but when his biography came out I ordered a copy and actually met Roger shortly afterwards and he remembered sending it to me, so you should be able to find him through the book (or H&H auctions who sold the prototype).

Roger still seems to be active with the biog and public talks, so hopefully it won’t be difficult to make contact with him! Good luck.

Was that aimed at me?

Marc Widar is still running Widi restoring/preparing historic race cars.
He's based somewhere near Liege and I've only been to his place once (was a rather more frequent visitor to his father's place) but did see one of the very first (possibly the first?) Lotus Elevens that he had recently finished at Spa last year.

His place was amazing a massive storage area with a huge number of interesting cars in it - I think he has several lifetimes worth of work there!

If anyone else can offer any help, please do so on the duplicate thread in Historic Racing Today. This one must be correct I guess.
Yes Peter Morley, Marc is restoring and racing so many cars may be he could help with some Astra information. A real nice person, genuine enthusiast and bringing the race cars on a old two bridges truck à l'anglaise !Period correct in any aspect.
