Thats interesting as it shows him racing in the GP of Rio de Janeiro in an Lotus Elite in November 1960 and the identity document in post #11 is a entry permit for him going to Brazil on 24 October 1960 - presumably to race at the GP of Rio de Janeiro?
That date is interesting as I have an article hereabouts, dated October 1959, saying that an Elite was earlier checked over and prepared for a Francis Francis, might have been Frank, before it went to France. The Lotus chassis register of Elite sales shows nothing in his name in that period, but several “for export” , so there may well have been another connection with Jabby Crombac.
Remember, too, that Peter Warr was one of the group of peripatetic Formula Junior drivers who traipsed around Europe in those days.
The Elite to Brazil may have been part of a process to race then sell the car down there, a not unknown practice elsewhere in the Southern Hemisphere, and may indicate a bit more of Jabby’s handiwork, possibly simplifying paperwork....
Edit. Perhaps there are photographs from Brazil on the glorious REVS site. I have seen shots of an Elite there elsewhere in South America in that period. Age sadly means I cannot recall the name of the photographer, but it was an unusual place name. I do recall that the first shot in that photographer’s gallery, but that was fives years ago, showed Penske and his FUBAR spl, in colour, the first time that I knew it was red. Yes, I have had a sheltered life....
