I know this has been asked before but I have drawn a complete blank on this one, the car was raced in F2 by Chris Bristow and then Ian Raby.

Does anyone know about the 3 F1 1961 non-championship events it competed in thereafter. It was entered by: Team Salvatore Evangelista, the events were:

March 26 1961, II Lombank Trophy, Snetterton, driven by John Langton? but qualified by Ronald Wrenn, the car DNF, event won by Jack Brabham.

April 16 1961, II Grosser Preis von Wien, Flughafen, Aspern, Vienna, Austria, driven by Ronald Wrenn and finished 7th, event won by Stirling Moss.

May 23, 1961, IX LondonTrophy, Crystal Palace Circuit, London driven by John Langton, finished 11th, event won by Roy Salvadori.

Does any one know anything about Team Salvatore Evangelista? Who was John Langton? Ronald Wrenn had some success in a Lotus 11 and Lotus 17 in Denmark in 1960/1961 does anyone remember him? Lastly does the Hume Cooper still exist?
