Good pic of the Holmes 772P (??) on TNF today. Also one of an Italian 75S. They're on the 'British Club Racing' and 'Photos of Cars in the Paddock' threads respectively.

August '82 A/Spurt has an "ex-Giacomelli 772P" being advertised from an 0620- no. Would this be George McMillan, or the Gorvel/Eyles car?

do you have access to an STD decoder? 0620 was North Berwick, East Lothian; I can pin it down further with the first 2 digit of the number...

MARCH 772P/U1 had been advertise on autosport dec 8, 1983.
Geo Mc Millan sold the car in excellent conditions, spare parts, FT200...the ex "Jack O'Malley's car" is now for sale by auction in France the january 28, 2016. The autioneer is "ROIS enchères" : www.interencheres.com
After Patrick Neve, Alex Dias Ribeiro, Jochen Mass, Bruno Giacommelli, Norman Dickson, Georges Mc Millan, 772P/U1 had race in the hands of JF Pelletier during any french hill-climb with a BDA engine with 2 carburators.

George McMillan told me that he sold the car to a bloke "down south" who was going to convert it into a Super Saloon/GT car. So how did it get to France?

I think G. Mc Millan did not want to say exactly who was the new owner to avoid customs's complication...

I don't think that was it. I asked him very recently and he was doing his best to remember where the car went. Maybe he got it wrong, but he wouldn't be worrying about paperwork issues 30 years after the event.

I'd still like to know who Pelletier bought it from. Have you spoken to Pelletier?

Hi Allen , I have had 772P/U1 at home , this car was bought in UK by Frenchman called Jean-Jacques Lecorre , JJ bought several cars in UK to make a little business to pay his hillclimb races and make a little pocket money ! he raced in hillclimb with a 772 # 2 ex MRS / Bardinon I bought to JJ this 772 .
when he bought 77P/U1 he give me the car to put in my garage because he had only a little garage , I keep the car few weeks because he sold it quickly to Jean François Pelletier the car was powered with a Cosworth BDD , Pelletier later sold the car to another Frenchman called Jean-Pierre ( I'm not sure ) Delaunay , Pelletier and Delaunay raced in hillclimb in West France during years 83/90 , I think you can find some results on Echappement

Thanks Alain. You've sent me many interesting pictures over the years. Do you have any pictures of the 772P in your garage?

Andy Bartons March 772P?

Hello!
I wonder if some of you know more about the update of Andy Bartons
March 772P fitted with Cosworth BDG?
I found this on Oldracingcars.com.
Did they only dress the car as 772P?
Can´t see the aluminium floor panel in front of the radiators.

//Stefan Hellstroem


March 77B/772P [3] (Andy Barton): New to Team Lexington for Ian Scheckter to race in the South African Formula Atlantic championship in 1977.
Returned to March Engineering in 1978 and sold to Andy Barton (Newcastle upon Tyne), updated to 772P specification, fitted with a 2-litre Ford BDG and used in libre racing.
Converted to Formula Atlantic specification for 1979 with a Swindon BDA engine and used in the revised British championship. Retained for 1980 as a hire drive, usually for Cameron Binnie (Cornhill-on-Tweed, Northumberland).
Sold to Colin Richardson (Peebles, Scottish Borders, Scotland) for 1981 and 1982. Possibly borrowed back by Barton for a couple of races after his 782/792 was wrecked in April 1981. Subsequent history unknown.
