Rejo Mk 6 - Info required

I've received the following request from our friends at the HSCC:-

'We’ve had an enquiry from someone who is restoring a Rejo Mk6 and would like to talk to someone about rear uprights / who knows relevant information about Lolas. Would you be able to suggest anyone?'

Can anyone help here, please? I didn't even know the Rejo used Lola parts!

Was it the Rejo that was a Dutch version of a Lola? If so James Wood should be able to help.

Alfaholic should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
If it helps, Jamie McIntyre ran one a few years ago. Unfortunately I have no further details other than on track pictures.

I seem to recall that the Rejo is in fact a Belgian version of the Lola. I am sure that there are those who know about them, and I recall talking to James Wood about them some years ago, when he either raced one or was involved with someone who did. Probably the VSCC would be a good port of call for contacts, as they often appeared at their events.

If I can help drop me a pm.

Bob.

I think the Rejo was British (built by Rod Easterling), are you confusing it with the Widi which was a copy of a Lola Mark 1 made by Willie Widar?

Thanks for that Peter, I was not sure about the Rejo, but could not call to mind the Widi, which is the marque I was thinking of.

I'll go back to sleep now.

Absolutely correct, don't recall Mk. 6 but Mk 4 another story, McIntyre car went to Simon Edwards 9/10 years ownership, then to USA in 2015

This gives some info. about the Mark 6

http://www.motorsportmagazine.com/ar...ory-rejo-times

Apparently Rejo Mk 4 used some Elva parts, so it's possible that the Mk 6 did as well, might be worth asking Roger Dunbar of elva.com if he knows?

Rear uprights are, standard (pun?) Triumph front end, including screw it in and out steering, unless modified a la Chevron in an effort to get the car to point in the direction of intended travel.

It always made me smile that in the day most "bitza" sports and race cars used Herald suspension parts when the actual car itself was not the best at handling, now I wonder why the rear swing axle wasn't used as well !!!!

Nope, completely missed that but have just got a much larger screen for the computer so might be able to read things now

BTW did you get my cheque - sent it to the Lagos address and didn't hear back, was expecting to hear that there were some unforeseen extra costs...

Yes the cheque arrived but you forgot to supply me with your bank details and security number for the credit card, please send it as soon as possible so that I can send you the fortune that has been locked in the bank for the last 20 years.
