Hi, I have dug out my pics but can't work out how to upload them, any help would be appreciated. I have 2 Francis Pound, 1 Ginger Payne, 2 Johnathan Williams, 3 Mike Cave, 3 of 1st Ogontune car and 7 of the later car.
Kind regards Ian.

Of course we're interested - just a shame that Wellsey's faded away . . .

Hi guys, sorry I have been away so long but I got confused with this forum and the ten Tenths one. I have tried to post some pictures without success perhaps I don't have the required permissions but I will keep trying.

is the car still around (locked up some where) or has it gone to the scrapie ?? would love to see other pictures of this rare race car, and yes keith racers did like them but parts are and were a pain in the rear to get thats why most ran ford parts IE engines gearboxes and axles normally from the the 100e,105e and they like the lotus twin cam engine ;)

Thanks Wellsey for sharing these rare photos (and to Dave for uploading 'em). Seeing as weight reduction was the goal (Perspex windows and only one wiper) I wonder whether the front wings were fibreglass or cut-down steel ones to accommodate the smoothed headlight glass?

Hi, it wouldn't surprise me if the whole front end was fabricated from aluminium as there are no seam lines on the wings with a slight outward dish to them plus the grill area treatment. I believe a relation to the driver of this later car posted on the forum some years ago and might be able to shed some light on that.
