GROPA Research - looking for Martyn Denley

As part of my ongoing GROPA research, I am looking for Martyn Denley who raced one of these cars in 1971 and 1972.

Would anyone know by any chance his whereabouts or have his current contact details ?

Any other info, race results, photographs of any other cars most welcome as well !

Thank you.

In addition, I am also looking for contact details for the following GROPA and/or CHEVRON owners/drivers/team :
- Terry Crocker
- William Tuckett
- Malcolm Clube
- Fred Boothby
- Anthony Beeson
- Colin James
- George Whitehead
- Allen Gibson
- Tony Charnell
- Frank Aston
- Martin Pawlowski (Germany)
- Grimaldi (Italy)
- Peter Hemmings
- Reg Bates
- Nolan Pitts
- Autolec Racing from Plymouth

I have also Ivan Hardy and Paul Watson whose names appear on Martyn Denley's lorry at Silverstone in 1971.
Any clue ?

Hi Philippe,
this is a rather late responds to your 2012 post!!
May be we have common interest in researching the Gropa ownerships!
There is only 1 German Gropa owner (Martin Pawlowski). I‘m actually researching the history of a Gropa car which was modified to accept a Porsche 2.0l engine. The owner of this chassis was another German: Bernd Seidler and after the modification the car was called GLS BS910.
Any idea whether the Pawlowski chassis somewhen became the Seidler chassis??

Wolfgang,
These are in my opinion two different cars.
The Pawlowski car has been in the USA for many years.
Prior to its restoration, the car was fitted with a BMW M10 engine.
