Post Sir T Beevor
Hi All,

My 1st Post.

There was an Elva MKIB driven at Brands Hatch on the 9th October 1955, driven by Sir T Beevor.
Can anyone please tell me the chassis number and what type of fibreglass body did the car have?
and please is there a photo of this car?

Regards. Tony Stanton, Rochdale Olympic History Archive.

Hi Tony
There is a comprehensive database of around 13K Elva race entries put together by Janos Wimpffen which shows that Sir Thomas Beevor raced at Brands Hatch on 09/10/55 at the BRSCC meeting for fibreglass bodied cars.
There is no chassis number identified but the body shell would have have almost certainly been from Ashley Laminates, having been taken from a mould produced from an alloy bodied Elva driven by Dizzy Addicott.
However, some of these very early cars did have bodyshells from other suppliers including Rochdale.
I may have a period photo so will add if available. RAD
