For­mer Regaz­zoni F2 Tecno re­turns to the cir­cuits this sea­son

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

An ex-clay Regaz­zoni For­mula 2 Tecno from 1970 is back rac­ing this sea­son in the hands of for­mer Su­per Kart racer Ju­lian Stokes.

Af­ter four sea­sons in karts, Ox­ford­shire-based Stokes saw the car at Paul Dud­ley’s work­shops and even­tu­ally bought it. Dud­ley raced the Tecno in the late 1990s but it then sat un­used for more than 15 years.

Stokes has re­built the car, draw­ing on pe­riod pho­to­graphs, and is now rac­ing it in the His­toric Sports Car Club’s Clas­sic Rac­ing Car cat­e­gory with a 1600cc BDA en­gine.

“I saw it in the back of a shed five years ago and I just love cars,” said Stokes. “But I’ve got a lot to learn.”
