Going back a bit Pete Crane told me it wasn't him driving. I asked Jason Phelps and he has informed me that this was a guy called John Mills. John was a painter and good friend of Chris Filsell. SPR had more cars then drivers back then so they were looking for some (unreal) The deal with John never worked out and the car become the Rain City Warrior.

Johns featured on here a fair bit, he painted a range of FC's and other race cars at his Pro Paint North shop in Stockport, including the roadrunner he raced.
