I thought Dave Morgan spent most of '74 in a Chevron B25, John, but then I saw only a few Formula Atlantic races that season (all at Oulton Park).

11c Tom Walkinshaw
11d Gillian Orchard

It was a Chevron, Simon, but I think he carried Harry Stiller sponsorship, on some occasions anyway. Having said that, it's always Alan Jones and a March that I associate with HS.

Jones (March) leading Morgan (Chevron) carrying similar colour scheme/sponsorship at Brands Hatch in 1974 at the GP support race. My usual apology for the poor quality Zenit E/Prinz lens plus converter and cheap scanner image.

Another photograph of Jones for once it isn't too bad quaity.

Thanks for the confirmation, David, and apologies to John for doubting his powers of recall.

Of the missing Imp drivers, could one be Mike Kirby (or possibly Kirkby)?

No need to apologise Simon, as long as you promise that, after Dave's success at the 1974 Thruxton round, somewhere you ran a 'Morgan's-Organs' caption. :) (with apologies to Dylan Thomas)

I assume, Pete, that Mike Kirby (see post 19) was wrong?

My Apologies Simon I missed that Yes Mike Kirby is correct .

That leaves the other Mike who was often seen at Brands and not at Thruxton where my list comes from at an away round of the Esso championship in 74.
