Who started the team , when , and why stop when you continue (if de Cadenet was the owner from the start)?

I wasn't actually aware that de Cadenet was involved, but maybe I'm just thinking of the early Chris Craft days with the team.

When Evergreen raced in Argentina Alain sold the McLaren there, I believe, and realising that the start and prize money paid in local currency was worthless elsewhere he bought "a ladder" - an Alfa Romeo Tipo B Monoposto chassis frame plus related mechanical "spares" - and filled the team's Radford containers with mint and boxed Dinky Toys and similar models of which he found a rich supply locally, for profitable resale back home. He also drove a Lola T210(ish) under the Evergreen banner.

Didn't they run a McLaren M8C with a Cosworth DFV and later a McLaren M8E?
Here's the M8C during the 1971 Buenos Aires 1000km
And the M8E at Nümberg Interserie latter the same year

Occasionally the entries in period are listed as Snake Speed Racing/Team Snake Speed (GT40, Osterreich Ring 1970) rather than Ecurie Evergreen, a style used by David Weir.
