Calling all Chevron owners and fans - Chevron Heritage

As from today Chevron Heritage has been launched, you can find it at: http://www.chevronheritage.com or http://www.chevronheritage.co.uk.

The site is aimed at both Chevron owners and fans and if you own a Chevron you can register it and there is a Marketplace for buying and selling Chevron related cars and spares etc.

As ever we are looking for contributions so if you have any pictures, stories or anything at all about Chevron you think might be of interest then please send it to us.

I should mention that the site has the support of Vin and Helen at Chevron Racing and we are grateful for the help they have provided in its development.

Gerald.

PS If you are thinking "Gerald......", isn't that the name of the webmaster at Lola Heritage then yes it's me again .

Are Chevron Cars included in this new venture as they seem to be involved in all things Chevron at the moment?

Well, that looks promising. Since we research chassis histories and have a number of Chevron models in our Chassis History Archive, any chance of putting our Archive on your list of links, please? It is, of course, the best place to discuss and research these cars.

John, a link to the Chevron cars site is provided.

Chevron Heritage must know that the Chevron archives and IP belong to CHEVRON CARS LTD

Good man, Gerald. Thank you. Don't forget the Chassis Archive can be used to develop and understand the history of these cars. We have many Chevron threads in there.

Looks good, your old photos look great too. (also had a poke around the Lola site which I'd never seen either!)

Interesting that the site states that:

The Chevron name and logo are registered and are the copyright of
Chevron Racing Cars Ltd and are used with permission


Whilst there is also a website for the "Original Chevron Car Company" using the same logo and Wikipedia says:

Chevron Cars Ltd. was a manufacturer of racing cars, founded by Derek Bennett, who remained in charge from 1965 to his death in 1978. The firm has remained active in various guises since his death. Chevron has been owned since 1982 by Roger Andreason and Tim Colman. As of late 2006, controlling ownership of Chevron belongs to Chris Smith, founder of Westfield Sportscars.

Which is it and what's going on?

my understanding was that Roger and Tim certainly did own it abd moved it out to teh States where most of their customer business was - however I also recall about 2006 seeing it was up for sale so maybe Chris Smith bought it then. It was, for a long time before relocating down to the States, based down in Dorset

I think that the problem appears to be that there is:

a) Chevron Cars Ltd
and
b) Chevron Racing Ltd

Both are using what appears to be the original Chevron logo as part of their sites. Both will supply "continuation models". Both will support Chevron owners with maintenance of their cars etc.

It is a mess and such a pity that the Chevron name has been torn apart!

I think you will find www.chevronracingcars.com explains the current position.

without sounding picky - does owning the archives equal owning the intellectual rights to the name? if it does then I agree it does clarify it completely.
