For­mer karter steps up his­toric at­tack

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Rac­ing den­tist Ross Dry­brough will cam­paign three his­toric race cars this sea­son, led by a sec­ond His­toric FF1600 pro­gramme in his Mer­lyn Mk20.

The for­mer karter only started rac­ing last spring and got quicker and quicker as the sea­son de­vel­oped.

He has ac­quired a Brab­ham BT35X, which is a for­mer hill­climb car now pre­pared to His­toric F2 spec­i­fi­ca­tion. The car has spent more than a decade in Ja­pan. “I hope to use it in Clas­sic Rac­ing Cars and maybe His­toric F2,” said Sus­sex-based Dry­brough.

He also has a barn-find Lo­tus Cortina, which will be a re­build project. “I love the whole ca­ma­raderie in the his­toric pad­dock,” he added.
