11/3/13 UPDATE . . . Spare chassis number 059 (formerly raced by Tim Edmonson / Kylie Gumley / Geoff Lord in the Formula Libre 0-750 class) has been fully rebuilt at MT&C Engineers, with the aim of using it for track days and Super Sprints, and is now fitted with the 1100 engine out of the old F1 sidecar. I have been taking photos as I progress through the build, and may post them here in future. All systems are go, and the engine fired up first hit, of course!

THE CAR:

British made by John Corbyn. Initially CAMS log booked by Peter Edmondson, and raced successfully from 1998 to 2006, in the 750 Formula Libre class. The car is the holder of records at most tracks that Tim and Peter raced at over that period.

Brakes: AP 2-piston rear callipers and Harrison BILLET 4-piston front callipers, on machined Brembo discs.

Shock absorbers: Protech dual adjustable aluminium body shocks, thanks to Redback Motorsport.

The car is now set up for circuit work at track days and super sprints in the Sydney area. Time to have some more fun!
