Brabham BT28

David.

I just loved the F1R REASON why a certain driver did not appear in his BT35 BDA at the Nurburgring round of the F2 C/ship 29-4-1973.
Entrant R. James .. Drv. Roy James , DNS. driver in prison.

Well Roy James had a good taste in cars didn't he? Perhaps he should have stayed away from trains.

Andrew.

The only problem with the Roy James car is that although it is entered , as it did not appear for obvious reasons , F1R could therefore not ' beaver ' the chassis no. , so I don't whose it used to be.

I suspect the 1973 R James is not Roy - he was put away in 1963 (or 1964) so it seems a but unlikely he'd file an entry for a race from his prison cell. Wasn't there a Reg James racing F3 or Atlantic about that time?

I think Reg James is involved with an engineering company in Manor Road, Woking. I forget the company name, but it has certainly done NC machining for Ron Tauranac in the past.

David thanks for the Reg/Roy bit, crikey was it that long ago? I'll stay away from trains in the future.( O level history was a bit of a struggle too)

All.

The F1R report re. R. James , def. stated Roy .
I have just found an adv. 4-1-1973 for an Atlantic / F3 Brabham BT28/35 for sale , as driven by Reg James.
F1R typo.

Two more bits of info.
The Fuller car I reported in Guyana is described in a late 1972 race report as Tom Belso's 1971 F3 fitted with a Vegantune T/Cam.
Also a Trinidad driver , Andrew Cheeks has the ex. Tim Schenken/ Sports Motors BT28 , fitted with a T/cam.
Schenken's F3 BT28 is BT28-23 and is now in Australia , and has been for about 12 years, came out of the U.K.

Bryan.

I see I'm pretty late in getting involved here. First a brief intro:

My name is David Irwin, I owned a restoration shop, Lime Rock Motors for 15 years in Connecticut. I've restored about 15 Brabhams, have owned several and have vintage raced since 1989. Recently moved to Virginia, bought some property where I'm putting up a small shop (3200 sq. ft.) while I work for ProtoType Technology Group restoring vintage racing BMW's owneds by BMW of N.A.

I've had contact with:

BT28-18 UK to Fred Harris 1995, F3 downdraft/MK8, sold to Steve Rees 1995?, sold to current owner Gene Owen 1998?

Maybe Wayne Mitchell wasn't the only one with an upgraded BT21 or BT28.

About the BT28s ! Lets start again and try and sort them out > I have lots of gaps. I'm sure by the time I have sorted out my chassis list out someone will have started the ball rolling. Do you think we should start another thread from scratch ?? (We have now! -JT)
