    David Prophet - Lotus-Maserati 24

    Hi i'm interested in Formula 1s "Return of the Power" of 1966.
    South Africa, ahead like in 1960, switched in mid-1965 to 3 litre.
    My question is about Hong Kong born british driver David Prophet.
    In the beginning of 1965 he drove his white "long-stroke Formula Junior" Brabham, being replaced at mid-season by a Lotus 24 with unknown chassis number and colour. Historic simracing shows the car as blue, but Im not sure if I cannot trust them. I once saw a photo in pale orange. The engine was discribed as a to 2.8 outbored 1960 2.5 litre formula 1 Maserati, despite the then used 4-cyl., which fit into the Cooper chassis, was a devirate of the 2 litre T60 respectively 3 litre(2890 cc) T61 sports car unit.*

    Hi Rodeos, I cant help you directly.. but you should maybe try contacting his daughter Jane via the Autosport forum. A good while back (2006-7) she was trying to build a web page dedicated to her fathers racing career.

    Good luck.

    Thank you a lot, Zico,
    I know this topic in autosport. It seems it was just the first draft of his daughter Jane and it doesn't work.
    Nevermind, all the best
