Hello all.

 

Gordon Coppuck's son Keith is trying to ID this car and driver for his dad. I said I'd try to help out, and if TNF can't ID it nobody can. Supposedly from around 1967.

 

BAC is a red herring - apparently it stands for British Accreditation Council so nothing to do with racing.

 

Thanks for your help, Nigel

Thanks. It does look like Brands doesn't it. Just got that feel.

Brands 5 March 1967  - Melaware Cup race. Can't be sure this is the exact race but the race number fits

My god this place is amazing. Thank you. It seems that Gordon's late brother, who was a keen photographer, took the photo and kept it. When the family were clearing his possessions they came across it and obviously their curiosity was piqued.

 

Thanks again. I'll pass it on to Keith and GLC.

:clap: Excellent!

 

Half an hour for an authoritative guess (which turns out to be spot on), and little more than four for detailed confirmation with lots of extra info - well done, guys!

 

Long live TNF!! :smoking:

No chassis number...?

 

:-)

 

Edit:

I was being facetious, obviously (I hope), but I now find reference online to it being chassis No.1.

Does that sound right?
