As part of my ongoing GROPA research, I am looking for Martyn Denley who raced one of these cars in 1971 and 1972.

Would anyone know by any chance his whereabouts or have his current contact details ?

Any other info, race results, photographs of any other cars most welcome as well !

Thank you.

In addition, I am also looking for contact details for the following GROPA and/or CHEVRON owners/drivers/team :
- Terry Croker
- William Tuckett
- Malcolm Clube
- Fred Boothby
- Anthony Beeson
- Colin James
- George Whitehead
- Allen Gibson
- Tony Charnell
- Frank Aston
- Martin Pawlowski (Germany)
- Grimaldi (Italy)
- Peter Hemmings
- Reg Bates
- Nolan Pitts
- Autolec Racing from Plymouth

I have also Ivan Hardy and Paul Watson whose names appear on Martyn Denley's lorry at Silverstone in 1971.
Any clue ?

Allen Gibson was from Colmworth just off the A1 near St Neots, and sponsored by Chawston Engineering , which according to Google is Hemel Hempstead these days .

George Whitehead was connected to or part of WRA Engineering , featured regularly in Cars and CAR cONVERSIONS MAGAZINE , Richard Hudson Evans then the editor might be worth a try .

Frank Aston is no longer with us. I spoke to his son Peter last year about his cars but he couldn't remember much about the Gropa.
