According to Doug Nye's Powered by Jaguar, Phil Scragg had two HW-Alta-Jaguars. The first was RPG 418 which was originally Alta chassis GP No 1, or GP101. After Spragg sold it, it raced for some years in Britain before being exported in 1959 to Uganda and Kenya with Frank Brown and was later owned by Peter Sargeantson. He goes on to say: "The original Alta rubber-block rear suspension was replaced by a transverse-leaf spring system, presumably to provide greater travel on poor surfaces."
KHJ 144 is a Nairobi registration number dating from about 1962. As the Alta went to East Africa in 1959 it was presumably originally registered in Uganda when Frank Brown was living in Uganda.
The second car that HW Motors built up for Phil Scragg was SPC 982. This car spent its whole racing career in Britain.
