Thanks,

Obviously the advert shows customer version prototype as the two race cars had the lower roof line. I've attached few more shots of the Singapore Shapecraft, this car also has the lower roof line as well, maybe its the same car as all other cars without side windows less attractive higher roof line away from screen.

I rotated it and still ended up upside down....

And finally the colour shot leading Lotus 7

Hopefully I'll get to see a Shapecraft at the Lotus gathering in August... like another member I saw both of the 26R Shapecraft cars at TTR's when they were restored in early 2000's.

Enjoy cheers

I'll ask Bill Gavin if he can find the photos from 2003 (slim chance) again, I asked before but they were on another hard drive and you know what computer guys have stashed away.
The originals are very good quality, the ones I have that are floating around on this forum came from Bill when he put them up in 2003 on the yahoo elan group. That site had a 20meg limit for all of the members so most files that were uploaded at the time were also relatively small.

Looks the right way up to me- is this something to do with you living in Australia? :D

Thanks again for posting the photos.

This was at a Trackday at Silverstone on Monday;

Is it a Shapecraft?

It seemed (no timing of course) surprisingly slow?

''Fastback as driven by Tony Thompson in the 1964."

I don't think Tony is that old! :wink:
