Brabham Ford BT06-17-FJ-63, ex Charles Vögele / Silvio Moser, today Jonathon Hughes car.


Today I found an article by Gian Paolo (Pablo) Foletti on the Kandersteg hill climb race from 22/09/1963 in Switzerland. In it, he speaks from a test drive at Goodwood in the week (weeks) before his race, by three Swiss pilots, one Silvio Moser and probably also Jo Siffert.


The third could be Rico Steinemann; he on behalf of Charles Vögele went to England to purchase an immediately Deliverable Competitive FJ, the Brabham BT06-17-FJ-63.


In Switzerland, this car has been illustrated as a loan from Brabham to support a talented Swiss pilot. In reality the car was bought to try to snap points away from the competitor of Vögele at the Swiss championship in 1963.


My question would be whether it was reported on this test drive in the English press.
