Anyone know of Chris & Mike Oates?

In 1972 (and I am lead to believe in 1973) Chris raced in Formula Atlantic.
They also owned a Chevron B19 during 1973 which they purchased from Central Garages (Mirfield).
Any information on them, their cars and their wherebouts would be greatly appreciated.

Don't know about Mike, but Chris was racing a Lotus 69 in Formula Atlantic in 1971. I have a feeling he was from Derby rather than Manchester, but not 100% sure of that.
www.oldracingcars.com may wel tell you some more, but I haven't checked it yet!

Just do a search on google and you will find lots of Mikes rally entries and results.
