Chevron B19

Could peolpe shed a light onto the history of Chevron B19 especially in Europe?

-Chevron B19 Chassis No. 27, driven by Brian Redman & Mike Hailwood

-Race debut: September 1971 at Nurbergring 500km (?)

Thaks in advance.

It's a long shot but you could try contacting Vin malkie I know he still owns a B19 and has lots of info on the car. Or alternatively try the book the Chevron Story by David Gordon.

Hope this helps?

That car came here to South Africa for the Springbok Series in November 1971,along with the other works car which had a Cosworth Vega engine.One of these two cars,not sure which, was bought by a local driver and stayed here.

If I am correct, Chassis No. 27 then went to Japan to be used for the Grand Champion series. Was it driven by Brian Redman and Mike Hailwood?

Does anybody know which one stayed in South Africa, which local driver bought it and driven by which driver at Spring bok?

According to Autosport reports, John Rowe ran an "ex-works" B19 at the Cape Town round of the Springbok series in November 1972, with a twin cam engine, but in later races, it's described as a B21. Maybe it was just updated to B21-spec.

That's the only private B19 I have in the Springbok series

Thanks for the info Jeremy.

Could someone confirm that chassis number 27 was driven by Brian Redman and Mike Hailwood in 1971?

Jeremy,
You are correct,John Rowe's car was a B19 updated/entered as a B21.I have always thought that as he used a twincam or later a BDA in this car ,it was more likely that he bought a rolling chassis after the Springbok i.e the unsuccsessful Cosworth Vega car less engine and FG gearbox.
Kojima...what were the dates of the Grand Champion series in Japan that you refer to ?

Chevron B19

Does any one have factory lists of the chassis numbers for Chevron B19

Chevron and Lola made similar amounts of cars with the evolution models over the years 71-75

Chevron went down the tune frame route (derived from the B16 car) until the monocoque car of the B26-whilst Lola had the monocoque from 1970 210/212 car onto the 290-298 version

The name Chevron came from the sign that showed two roads comming together outside of a local pub Bennett went to. the "B" in the Chassis numbers stood for Bridges for his financial contributions to the company. Also they only produced chassis numbers in multiples on 11.

Hi guys

If we're going to use the data from the Chevron page on classiccars.com, the least we should do is credit the author. Really, we should be getting their permission or only using individual items of date - not the whole page so blatantly.

Thank you, Allen; a good spot! We must observe copyright law as well as give credit where it is due. Since we are at that point, do we have any solid information that we can add to the above info.

A bit of B19 stuff found in Sport Auto's report on the 1971 300 km d'Auvergne (August 1971 p63-65).

Bridges B19-71/7
Hine B19-71/8
Burton B19-71/10
Swart B19-71/12

The Chevron book says 35 B19s built, all in 1971 (so chassis 1-10, 12, 14-21, 23-32 and 34-39?). All had 1790cc engines except for one with a 2000cc Abarth and one with a 3000cc BMW Alpina.
