I have just read over on an aviation forum that Graham Warner has passed away, I seem to remember that he raced Elites in the 60`s I`m sure some of you can fill us in with his racing history............Martin

Yet more sad news. Here's an earlier thread with useful info on Graham:

 

Who were The Chequered Flag Ltd in Edgware?

 

RIP

Sad news. Graham Warner and his Chequered Flag team were the essence of 60’s racing—first with the Formula Junior Geminis, then his heroic GT battles in the white and black Lotus Elite “LOV 1” against Lest Leston’s red Elite “DAD 10” …then Elans; followed by Cobras , including the memorable win by Bob Bondurant/David Piper in the totally unsuitable 7 litre version in the pouring rain at the Brands Hatch Ilford Films 500 mile race May 1965.

The showrooms of the Chequered Flag Garage in the Chiswick High Road were always worth a look too!

RIP Graham.
