So, I have a question about frame number on a BT-35. Frame numbers generally start with the AM number right? I found that on my frame I have a "D1" stamp where the AM number should be. I had never seen it, because it is right by the frame bolt. My car has a -10 MRD plate. Any help here?

Thanks,

Kent

Could it be DL? I have seen initaisl following an AM number so might you be seeing just the end of the number?

Let me know the whole number and I'll see if I can suggest something. Email allen@oldracingcars.com if you'd rather not give out the number here.

This reply is some 11 years late,I was with Mike Hawley at some of the hill events in 71 & 72, the first engine indeed was the FVA but he went for the Brian Heart BDA for the second season. This engine was an animal and took two of us to start it ( Phil Witton ) he went with Mike to many events, I could not spare the time.
If anyone is interested I have a very good Black and White photo of Mike in the Brabham at Shelsley, and would be very happy to share. It was Red and always immaculate .... he had one of the first Range Rovers in that nasty mustard colour matched to a Don Parker trailer in the same colour. The BT 35 spent many hours in the garage in Darwin Street, B'ham until it all went very wrong, Grand Met. took over and closed us down.

For me, very happy memories and would go back now this minute!

Hi Nick,
Thanks for this. I last heard of the car in Belgium, where I saw it in 2009/10. I think it has a twin cam in it at the moment.

To the Forum,
I am posting here to inform you of the passing of forum member Kent Copeland (kentr1) and owner of BT35 #10. He left us last July after being diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. I helped Kent sort out and race the Brabham since late 2006. I have been asked by his wife Holly to sell the Brabham and I have it listed on Hemmings.com. If you know of anyone that might interested in this sorted vintage race car please respond to the ad in Hemings .com or contact me directly at tupp@verizon.net. The car is located in Houston Texas USA.

Introduction and update on BT35-X2.

Hi,
I appreciate the last post on this thread was in May last year, but as the thread originally started in 2003, I guess any new posts and updates will be welcome.

I've just started Historic Racing in the UK and did my first season in Historic Formula Ford in 2015. I'm totally hooked !

I have recently been fortunate enough to secure Brabham BT35-X2 from Japan ( Still sitting as a Formula Two car, with a BDA, but not being used.)

We are bringing the car back to UK and hoping to re-commission -X2, and get the car back racing again in Historic F2.
This will mean re-applying for FIA and HSCC papers, as both have expired.

I have read with interest the information about the car within the earlier pages of this thread, but any additional history anyone can help me with would be hugely appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Ross Drybrough

Was this the car that started life with a Repco V8 engine installed for use in sprints?

That's right. 5-litre Repco 740 V8 from 1971 to 1979, and then the Repco was transferred into a March 761.

The BT35X was never a F2 car of course, but HTPs only look at technical specification, not history, so if the car was presented in F2 BT35 specification, it could get a HTP. It would need to follow the specification of one of the two BT35s that appeared in F2 in 1972 and 1973, Dave Morgan's 1.9-litre Wood BDA car, or Bob Marsland's 2-litre Hart BDA car. (I am assuming Francisci's BT35 with 1.6 Nova that ran at Vallelunga in 1973 would not be allowed as a specification for historics.)

An update on BT35-44. I'll start with what is already on site to summarize then add the new owners.
"BT35-44 AM#71 64 ( CL ) Original owner Gray Mickel, 1971, F2 spec car w/ Hart TwinCam (2 or 4 Valve?) for Scottish Hillclimb Championship, changed to FVC. Sold to JimCampbell 1974-1978. Chris Dowson 1980, sold to Fred Edwards 1985, raced Historics 1985 to 1991, restoration not complete 1998?, exported to US by Sid Hoole. sold to David Irwin 2001, less engine/FT200. Restoration by J&L restorations. November 2005 Don Roose raced at Portland, 2007 Don Roose has for sale"
Allen Nicholas, California purchased the car December 2009 and ran it at U.S west coast events. (Sorry don't have a list)
Peter McLaughlin, New Hampshire, bought the car from Nicholas December 2014. McLaughlin only ran the car in one test session.
April 2016 McLaughlin sold the car to David Smoker of South Australia.

BT35-31

Mike Hansen (post #2069917)
I purchased BT35-31 and BT35-32 a couple of years ago and completed a complete restoration in May 2018. The car was driven by Geoff Brabham in the SVRA Indy Brickyard along with BT35-26 that I drove. They were 1st and 2nd with Geoff winning in the Bt35-31. I think I posted a picture of it but not positive. It is british racing Green and number 83 (Geoff Brabham's number throughout his race career)

Hugh Cree/ Maurice McCaig
I also own and race BT35-19. The last race was at Watkins Glen with SVRA last September (2017). It is red and gold and there are several pictures of it on the internet under Brabham BT35 race cars. I also think I might have posted a picture of this car.
