    Was that a race series or a rally series?

    That's the rally series. The cars of the better known contenders were a mixture of regional registrations of their local dealers - Pond, Brookes, Sparrow, Rockey(R.I.P. this very month) etc.
    The race cars seemed to be a lot of Essex registrations so were probably ex- Ford press cars/demonstrators.

    To give the lie to it being a cheap series because of Group 1 spec, Brookes went through 2 (different "AB" Worcestershire registered) cars in the comparatively short time it ran (body falling apart rather than accident damage...).

    I've just heard that Eric Jackson (known for his long distance epic drives through Africa and also British Rally Champion 1964), who supplied this car, died yesterday at the age of 93.

    Don't know why the original poster bothered.....

    The problem is no one will reply to others who post when replies are not acknowledged.

    Yeah, but look at the number of views. Many people may not have a particular comment to make but greatly enjoy some of the knowledge passed on. Especially in this history forum.

    I agree, it's nice to receive an acknowledgement when you try to share knowledge.
