driftwood has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
i like the excuse the owner gives for not having a chassis plate afixed to his car that it will get stolen
i must now rush out to the shed make 3 new cars and sell them but tell the buyers the plates where stolen but they really are JoBo cars!!
who is the guy kidding if he had the real plate for the car he would wear it with pride

Blimey, you lot like your research, don't you! I've only read about two-thirds of the thread, but getting back to one of the T280s in particular, I've asked some pertinent questions and can perhaps confirm or fill in some minor details about it.

The car that ran Jeremy Lord raced in the 1974 Tricentrol Championship was bought by Minilite from Heini Mader, who had indeed looked after Jo Bonnier's cars. It was described as ex-Jolly Club and the name Giorgio Pianta apparently rings a bell. As delivered it had the drop-down bodywork at the rear and the central cockpit division, but not the full width roll-over bar. The roll-over bar was extended and the central division removed in order to comply with then current FIA regulations. The front splitter was also a Minilite addition. The car was maintained and run by David Price out of his lock-up garage.

The car did nothing in 1975 after Minilite and Lord withdrew from racing, but had one last outing in their hands at Silverstone in a 1976 meeting, which it won from Willy Green in a Ferrari. Then it was sold to Jorg Zaborowski to race in the Interseries.

In due course it found its way back to the UK and was bought Marsh Plant Hire and raced by Ray Mallock and John Cooper in Thundersports races. Ray put the rear wing on the car and modified it quite a bit. I've seen a video of them winning a race with it on the Brands GP circuit in 1983. Very exciting race, actually.

have u guys read the book on euopean sports car championship 70-75 written by the french?
all on 2 litres but its in french with race results
pity they didnt consider the many engish speaking nations that own these cars today and printed the book in dual language
howver it has many good photos but the auther could do with contacting as he must have a lot of info that will be of use to us
i cant find my copy right now but Palmiers are the publishers
perhaps Mr Hache would be able to liase with them to obtain some more info
Mr Bown are you considering adding in sports cars to your oldracing cars.com site ?
we can im sure obtain the lola chassi# list from the day of delivery and im sure the chevron list is not difficult to procure
the results are found on a few websites
does anyone have a good link into Krecji site ive tried to get in for 70-80 sporst car results and i get lost
im not sure if he has altered his site but i recall 2-4 yrs ago it was simple to get in and get results

I do find the 2-litre sports very interesting and would be happy to include the results on my site but my Indy and F5000 projects keep me too busy to be actively involved in suhc a project. Martin Krejci probably has all the results in his database and I might be able to get him to provide me with a copy. We'd then need to cross-check those against any other sources and also try to identify chassis numbers where we can.

The difficulty for me would be that my database was designed for post-66 F1 originally and later modified for F5000 so does not cope well with shared drives. To be honest, it deals with them very badly. I'd need to sort that out before I could publish anything.

If I did kick off such a project, who'd be willing to put some hours into it collating and cross-checking results and identifying cars?

Martin already has pages listing chassis on his site (http://wsrp.wz.cz/), list chassis with original & subsequent owners.

See link at upper right of his main page. if you go to Lola Sports, all the T210, T29x cars are listed there already, so I sggest he would be grateful for any newly identifued chassis.

Hallo Alain,
Yes, I agree with you dates for my Lola T290. I do not look to the plate of Mr. Blatons car, I was busy with my car (a B8).

I own this book ,I had good feeling to read it but I greatly regretted the lake of race numbers and chassis numbers .
For myself I own some chassis numbers entered in 1972 from french magasine Sport Auto .
I can try to contact the autor.....
Mr Fox : you entered a T290 in the Le Mans Classic 2002 , was it HU017 ?
best regards for all

Remarkably my brother has just met a chap from Newbridge Motorsport, who, quite independently of this thread, says he looks after T290-HU17. He also says its an ex JoBo/Blaton car, and apparently was on pole for the 2004 LeMans Classic.

Ain't it a small world...

yes newbridge are looking after 290 car i thought they where doing a later car in the 20`s- spoke with the boys at a test day earlier in the year also mentioned another car needing rebuild that lived near them
i sat reading my sports car book last night at 2 am and yes Mr Hache you ar eright about lack of race numbers and info - i sat looking at race results the fotos quailifying grid slot to see the cars over the years in the livery to work out a few cars/drivers /livery
at the rear of book are some credits

i would like to see more fotos of cars in the period
any ideas where to look -yes im a lazy toad to troll thru the web but i do go straight to anything u boys mention ( where`s the porn? ) AS doesnt have colour pics of the day
As Mr Fox has said he can assist with chassis nos and im sure the march 73 74s # are easy to sort out as it appears aprox 4 cars ran in the 2 litre era and im sure the Bolton brigade can dig out chevron # leaving only small marques like AMS GRD etc to be sourced

and we do know that there are some replica cars out there than can soon be dismissed from a list and with the french and italian readers of the site im sure the 2 litre list will come together swiftly
i am willing to contribute the wine or beer
Mr Brown will consume whilst sorting thru the info !!
anyone for the peanuts?
