Do you own or know the whereabouts of a piece of UK Drag Racing History or just want info on a particular machine.

One early British rails that always interested me was Derek Metcalfe's TR2-powered Wombat.
Some really interesting engineering in there such as the TR motor mated to a VW transaxle with a jointed link rear axle tube set-up.Derek later joined up with Harold Bull as B&M Equipment sell chassis and other bits based on Strip Duster.The Wombat later became Leprechaun with Bill McGrath's 'Gloink' team.
Does anyone know if it run by anyone after that.
Just curious.

I've never seen any pics of it after 'Leprechaun' but you never know...

here's a shot of it first time out taken by Brian Sparrow at Blackbushe '64 with Alan Allard checking it out...
