Team Managers or Chief Mechanics?

John Sheppard was there from about 1970 to 1977.

John Sawyer started with Bob in last quarter of 1961. Sometime after the second running of the ATCC at Lowood. Harry Firth was doing preparation on the BJ cars before.

 

John Sheppard only did BJ race prep for a couple of years from May 1970 and brought along Pat Purcell with him. You can read the latest AMC #105 Sheppo feature to find out more.

The Jane P8 built by Bowin number P8-118-72 does anyone have photos or information as I am restoring the car.This is a long shot how about the Repco engine that was fitted to the car.

What has happened with this restoration?
