I just found this photo amongs the others I took in UK in June.

Only a few doors down from FAV in Banbury Avenue, Slough Trading Estate, these humble premises were once the home to Surtees F1 team.

Terry, at what point did Team Surtees operate from Slough?

I ask because when cousin Peter worked on the first F.1 car, the TS.7, the base was Edenbridge in Kent.

Didn't Team Surtees operate the works F2 Lola effort at one stage?
Slough would be a good place to base yourself for that

Unless I'm mistaken, they left either during - or just after - the 1969 season.
