Daws and son to field an Osella

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Fa­ther-and-son team Neil and Ge­orge Daws will race an Osella PA6 in the Pre ’80 En­durance Series next season.

The Chel­tenham-based pair al­ready run a Mer­lyn Mk6 but plan to race the twolitre BMW en­gined-osella next season in its first run for around 15 years. The ex-gi­max car won the 1978 Ital­ian Sports Car Cham­pi­onship and won its class in the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship.

“It was hill­climb­ing in Italy and prob­a­bly hasn’t run for 15 years or so,” said Ge­orge. “It’s very close to be­ing fin­ished and we can share it in two-driver races. We hope to be out in the first half of 2017. I’ve never raced on slicks be­fore!”
