I purchased the car in Dec. 2000 through vintage racer and Lotus enthusiast Jim Bennett, who saw the car on display in England. When I imported the car it had the original 1000cc "screamer engine" in place, and was, and still is, in its unrestored "as raced" condition.
The car was originally raced by Malcolm Payne (GB; Jim Russell Racing School) and appeared at Goodwood, Oulton Park, and Snetterton in March and April 1966.
The car was then sold to Gunner Carlsson (Sweden) where the car appeared on several entry lists in 1966. The car then passed to Haglund, and then to Nilsson. It was most likely retired from racing by 1969.
A more detailed and complete history is forthcoming.
