Does anyone know the chassis in these pics? I believe they are from 1983.

Could you possibly help by saying which country and which formula - it will avoid a few blind alleys.

Sorry about that: Canada, and I believe it is F1600. I was just told that it is a Hawk MP-21, but I've been unable to locate any other pics of that chassis to confirm.

Don't instantly recognise it but slick tyres make an FF1600 look quite different from "usual or normal"! If it is a Hawke it's model number would be "DL??" as "MP21" is /was a Dulon.

It looks very like a Hawke Mk21 to me:

I think Tim nailed it. It also looks a bit like the picture of theDL-15 on page 91 of Steve Nickless formula ford book.

Indeed it was Fellows' car... but the driver in the pictures above is a VERY young Paul Tracy. :)
