I recently made contact with a high school class mate from the mid Sixties, whose father at that time ran a Cooper Monaco on Swedish circuits and Norwegian horse-trotting tracks. Also, there was Winter racing on ice (our Winter Championships on frozen lakes, with crash barriers made up from snow banks) using spiked tyres...inch and a half -long steel cones that bolted through the tyres from the inside. His father had apparently bought the Cooper from Curt Lincoln of Finland, and ran it in the Nordic countries with considerabke success in 1962/63 before it was sold to the US, He is keen to know how many Monacos were produced, and any information about the Curt Lincoln car. It was said at the time that Lincoln had purchased the car from Jack Brabham, but I do not seem to recall Black Jack doing much racing in a Monaco. Any Cooper affectionados out there able to shine a little light on any of this?
