Daws and son to field an Osella
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!”
