Hi John

Thanks for that. I was aware of Stephen's car so can now combine the two and have one less mystery to solve.

Kind regards

Hi John

Are you the John Grant that ran a Chevron B19 in Supersports a few years ago? We're researching B19s on 10 Tenths at the moment and I'd be keen to know the history of yours.

Kind regards

I'd like to call you later today.
We're trying to unite the world's Vintage car owners and Vintage Racing and you could be very helpful!
BTW - my dream was also to race a F1 car and I'm having a Shadow DN8 restored, also driven by Clay.
All the best - Stephen
