The latter was described well in Bill Price's brilliant book about Abingdon. Led by a country mile at the '70 Marathon de la Route at the Nurburgring.

Sadly they had to retire the car because of severe propshaft vibrations, possibly due to the curse that Donald Stokes had put on them!?

 

The car looked fantastic and I believe both they built still exist? http://www.oldclassi...r-p6-racing.htm

Falcons, as you say Jaytee. Here's a Mike Hayward shot of Brian Muir in 1968.

Brian drove Camaros too, but for Malcolm Gartlan I think.  Who drove the Shaw Camaro? Roy Pierpoint?

Regarding early Bill Shaw entries, is this the same man listed on Martin's website, driving (in the early 1960s) a Lotus Elite, Lotus Eleven and an AC Ace?

W.J.Shaw raced a Ford Mustang in the final round of the 1966 British Saloon Car Championship at Brands - would that be Bill Shaw?

Bill Shaw had one of the semi works Dolomites in 1974 .
The main team was run by Ralph Broad and the other three teams given the cars were always six weeks behind Ralphs developments.
