John never ran in the ICS but in the HRSR.
Pete Bevan (George's son) raced an A40 as well.

Current owner just sent me these photos of my old car, still racing in Texas.
And I think the only A40 racing in North America.

Very near Dallas & strange as it may seem I am in Austin, close to the Hill Country area & this is one of the worst flood areas in the USA.
And there is usually one rain event per year.

.WAS THE CAVE CAR NOT WHITE IN COLOUR ?




Mike Cave/ Harry Digby, 1275 c.c car entered by Richard Miles ( Downton ) London.
This car ran mainly down south, Combe,Brands,Crystal Palace & Goodwood.
It was & farina grey mk1 with a different grille area, it ran a Downton dry sump motor & held many track class lap records & won the Goodwood Members Championship for many years.
I think this car was later raced by Gordon Spice in Guyana.
Steven Miles ( Richards son ) runs a replica in the Masters series.[/QUOTE]

I remember this car very well - Farina Grey. It won the saloon car handicap race by a country mile at Phoenix Park in 1963. Totally outfoxed the handicappers, well driven, must have has a F Junior engine. Happy days.
