Ogontune A40

Post30 May 2013 12:04

Below is a pic of the A40 my father Jonny Dumbell raced in I think 1966. I understand their was another that was built with his business partner Chris Airey who sadly died racing it at Brands in 1963.

I only have two images of the car and very little details at all about it's specifications.

Very pleased to see a photo of the Ogontune A40 formerly run by Jonathan Dumbell. I recently interviewed Mick Cave and Jonny Dumbell's name cropped up in our conversation and Bill Airey, the late Chris's brother, has also been very good in providing me with much info on Chris's background. I would like to know more about Ogontune, Jonny Dumbell and the cars in particular. If Barnaby would like to contact me on 01495 785558 I would be pleased to hear from him.

Hi everyone, I am the guy who uploaded the picture of the Ogontune A40 on Ten Tenths some time ago. I have a few other pics of this car and two of the Chris Airey car with and without the megaphone exhaust. I also have a few other A40 pics, Mike Cave, Francis Pound, Ginger Payne and Jonathan Williams. I was a spectator in the sixtys and a A40 fan, its nice to remember the times again. When I find out how to I will post some more pictures.
