Car (South Africa) - - CONTENTS - Rodger Ward

THE KU­DOS: Never take a knife to a gun­fight is the pre­vail­ing wis­dom. It’s not ad­vice that Rodger Ward lis­tened to, though. In a race open to cars of any for­mula and up against the likes of an ex-fan­gio Maserati 250F For­mula One car, as well as a Le Mans Jaguar D-type and As­ton Martin DBR2, Ward chose an 11-year-old open-wheeled Midget with a 1,8-litre, four­cylin­der en­gine de­signed for oval rac­ing.
