Cooper in 1959

Can anyone confirm either version?

Again according to Small he was the only one of the aforementioned drivers to actually RACE the T45 in 1959.
Suggest the T45 was in fact a spare car which they all drove in practice from time to time.

Or an T45 updated to T51 spec (which wouldn't take much)?
Or - as I believe - a T51 with an old number?

...Philippe, it was the original 'Mark I' production Junior, 1959 for 1960...

Your book miight be correct, depending on the race(s) in question
A T52 raced with the big boys in South Africa, another in New Zealand, and possibly one in Australia too

"Author Alex Gabbard is an award-winning author and photographer who has written 14 books..."
The only one I could find is the one above ...
I wonder how many other mis-statements there are in the book about other cars and events...
Better rely on more knowledgeable authors.
