drbob should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Ah I see now thanks Mike
I must admit I did not take much notice of what was happening at the front of the field apart from when they were lapping me
Interestingly the TVR qualified in front of the Elva
Only 3 Elva built though it seems

Two cars with 2 litre BMW engine and one built up from
Bits much later with a Buick engine.
The car that races is with a 2 litre BMW based engine
In period Chris Amon used it as a road car!

Neither of the BMW engined cars are for sale and owned by people who would be seduced by an offer.They both have collections.
Tried buying the third car but thatís owned by some Dane who seems to be impervious to having dosh thrown at him! Understand it needs a complete rebuild and has made a couple of false starts at rebuild but it came to nothing.

Pontiac will be much cheaper even if either of Elvas were to be sold!
