For a small model project I’m doing I’m looking for some historical images of the Peter Bloore Racing MARCH 722-8 driven by Japanese driver Hiroshi Kazato that raced in the 1972 European F2 series.

Of particular interest to me are the decals that are on the front wings, rear wings plus on the radiator side pods.

There are a few images on the net but none a very clear as to what these decals actually are.

Thanks in advance to those who can be of assistance.

I'm guessing you've probably seen this one already - from Marchives:

Nothing?
O.K. I have worked out one, rear wing has the logo from JEOL.

Which is a supplier of scanning electron microscopes.

Still pretty keen for detail of what the front wings were.

You could try contacting Peter Bloore.
His company is Raceparts in Wallingford - you can find it easily via Google etc.
Peter himself is retired and the business is now ran by his son James who will pass a message onto Peter.

Cheers
I have seen the Marchives pic but it is not clear. I never knew Peter Bloore was around to be contacted. Will try there.
Thanks.

Many years ago when I bought the car from storage it was red with white wings and STP stickered. With the drivers name on the cockpit sides and a tartan covered seat.

Ok, I can come clean now, the model I’m working on is full scale and my first proper F2 car.
The GWG ANF2 car will be sold or relegated to the back of the shed. The new car is now finally in transit to Aust.

My intention is to repaint and return her to her correct livery as last raced by Kazato in 72 before he went to a GRD chassis.
Ted if possible I would like to view the livery you speak of plus a tartan seat? I’ll have to replicate that!
