Ground-break­ing 750 For­mula racer to be re­built live on stage

Motor Sport News - - Race Retro Preview -

A ground-break­ing car from the his­tory of the 750 Mo­tor Club will be re­built live on the club’s stand at Race Retro.

The War­ren was de­signed for the 750 For­mula by Jerry Ever­shed and won the 1973 ti­tle in the hands of Robyn Smith. It was re­mark­able as it ran with a su­per­charged ver­sion of the 747cc Re­liant en­gine and a spe­cially made cylin­der head.

Af­ter many years in stor­age, cur­rent owner Ron Welsh and other club mem­bers will re­build the car dur­ing the three days of the show with a plan to get the War­ren ready to race again.

The 750 For­mula is one of the old­est rac­ing cat­e­gories in the world, dat­ing back to 1949 and has al­ways been home to in­no­va­tive home builders. This season, the club is mak­ing a big push to get some of the older cars back onto the track.

The War­ren will run again
