Not much action in past years here but maybe there is a lurker out there with a LeGrand Formula C that could help me with some information? I have what is thought to be a 1965 MKIII B Formula C according to the ICSCC log book. There is 57.002 stamped on the roll bar but that could be a club number as well? I am missing rear axles, calipers and rotors. Any idea where Red would have gotten those?

I've just replied to your email Brad. That's a San Diego number from 1972 so I've been able to give you a name you could follow up.

Venezuelan Forum address Update

Good evening,

The Venezuelan Sport Cars Forum with the article about the Le Grand Caribe Mk3 / 6 was moved to a new address;

http://www.pasionalavelocidad.com/ph....php?f=9&t=109

Unfortunately the Forum founder, Branko Krnjajski passed away in July 2011; several of us still keep it going, and in case of the Le Grand Caribe I can help to answer any questions that you have.

Best Regards,

Davhut around?

I currently own the Legrand M14 that Davhut is referring to. Stripped some old panels off of it and found Dark Red Paint underneath. I wonder if Davhut still has any old photos of it still?

Thanks

Just noticed this!
I have recently acquired an entry list for the first San Diego region event of 1972, the first race at which roll hoops would be stamped.
There are two Le Grands in the list - both FB cars. Those of Richard Paul and Gary Goddard.
Of course, there may have been another car turn up, and neither of those may have appeared (I have entry list but no results) However, it's a start.

Chris
I don't get here often enough myself. Thank you for your reply. Carter Penley would have been the driver/entrant. This car was never converted to a FB so maybe he sat that race out. Bradfordgreen@ cbbain. comif you come up with any other info.
Thanks Again
Brad

Just aquired a MK6 FB

Hi. I have just acquired a MK6 FB with the twin cam Lotus built by HRE. The interesting fact about this car, well there are plenty actually, it may have never been raced. I spoke with a previous owner last night (Harold Krech) who bought it about 25 years ago and was part owner of HRE, and he told me the chap he got it off never really raced it. He said it was the most original one he had ever seen. Harold was personal friends with Red Legrand and that is why he bought. They(HRE) built the motor which by the way still fires right up. I pick the car up next weekend so I may be picking some brains to try and figure out more. Thanks for any anticipated help in the future..
Graham.

Any numbers stamped into the rollhoop? That will give us a place to start.

Hi and thanks for the response. No there are not any numbers anywhere on the car. Well not that I have found although I have just picked it up and the previous owners could not find any. Apparently it was never raced and looking at the belly pan I could believe that as there isn't a scratch on it. Very original car. Also I read that Red Legrand didn't always stamp the frames which makes it a little more difficult to figure things out.

Hi. I have a little more information. I got in touch with a former employee of LeGrand (Gerhard Klose) and who also raced a MK6 back in 68. He was with Red when they were fabricating in the two car garage and then moved into the bigger building. He also confirmed they did not always stamp the chassis as for one thing were not thinking someone would be restoring one of their cars 50 years later. He also gave insight to the way they were painted being dark colored on the lower part. This was because the car is pretty "fat" around where the radiator is and painting it a darker color made them look thinner. This was sometime done with tire paint. He sent me a photo of him racing at the Nationals and also a brand new front nose emblem. Great guy to talk to. Any more info on this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Graham.
