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

I was speaking with Brian Taylor today and there seems to be some confusion around this car as nobody knows anything about it, even Allard.

nice to see an Allardette there too... wonder if it was one of the cars raced by Duce and Sydney at Silverstone in '63?

The Allardette is a fresh recreation. If you have a look at the Allard Sports Cars Ltd. page on Facebook there are pictures of the build in progress. Talking to Lloyd Allard at the show it was only finished on Thursday ready for transporting to the show on Friday.

Here are a few pictures of what the restorer, Roger Hayes, started with and some in progress ones also.
Chassis as found
Like the view through the empty blower case, apparently a new unused one found at the Allard factory.

thanks for posting the as found pic and in progress shots...

do you know if it was the chassis run by Colin Glass in '65 and '66 or was it one that never got used?

Thanks for posting these. Really interesting.
Is that first picture of the chassis all he had to work on for the restoration or did he have other bits/parts.
