Here is a summary using Allens existing ORC Rennmax entry as a base, drawing together all of the material inclusive of a response from Greg Smith this morning- with a view to providing Allen's ORC update;http://www.oldracing...om/rennmax/bn3/
Mildren (Rennmax) Alec Mildren
Fitted with Autodelta Alfa Romeo 1.6 litre 4 valve engine, first raced by Kevin Bartlett at Warwick Farm on 8 September 1968. Put to one side as the team focused on the Brabham BT23D Alfa and Mildren 'Yellow Submarine' Alfa.
Became Max Stewart's car when he joined the Mildren Team in 1969- first raced at the 1969 Lakeside Tasman. Raced in the 1969 Gold Star initially with a Waggott 1.6 TC4V (twin-cam 4 valve) engine and later in the season Waggott 1860. Fitted with Waggott 2 litre from the 1970 Tasman through the 1970 Gold Star, 1971 Australian Tasman rounds and Gold Star- won the 1971 Gold Star.
Raced in the April 1971 Singapore GP powered by a Brian Foley owned Alfa Romeo GTAm 2 litre engine. By the 1971 Gold Star Alec Mildren Racing had ceased, the car was Stewart's but was still entered and called the Mildren Waggott.
Raced by Melbourne's Tony Stewart (no relation) with support from Paul England in the 1972 Australian Tasman Rounds.
Max raced and won the April 1972 Singapore GP powered by a Paul England Lotus/Ford twin-cam. Contested the May 1972 JAF Japanese Grand Prix Waggott 2 litre powered, DNF accident. Returned to Australia and contested some 1972 Gold Star rounds driven by Allan Grice- Paul England twin-cam powered. Max retained ownership of the car.
Raced in the 1973 Malaysian GP 4th, and Singapore GP 7th, by Max, the car entered as 'Rennmax', England powered.
Sold at some point by Max to English born Australian F2/F5000 driver Ken Shirvington.
Sold by Shirvington in 1981 to Greg Smith, Elwood, Victoria- complete car, chassis tag 'AMR003' fitted with BRM twin-cam. Amongst the bits Smith acquired were engine mounts for the Ford 'L Block' Waggott 1600/1860 engines as well as the Waggott bespoke alloy block 2 litre engines. He also had the Japanese GP long-range fuel tanks.
Restored by Smith and fitted with a 234bhp Waggott 1860 FVA after an 8 year search for an engine. In February 2018 it became clear Shirvington sold another bare chassis tagged 'AMR03' to Joe Farmer- Farmer believes the chassis may have been built after the 1969 Easter Bathurst collision between Niel Allen and Stewart. Farmer retains this chassis. (need to confirm who built the chassis with Bob B but their seems no doubt about it being a Rennmax frame)
Greg Smith sold the car to Max Pearson, Queensland who further cosmetically restored the car inclusive of fitment of Waggott 2 litre.
Pearson races the car in historic events together with an Elfin MR5 Repco first owned by Max Stewart in late 1971- the MR5 succeeded the Mildren as his primary tool for 1972.
Hope this is a help
