I cant remember this driver/preparers name but he came out on track 3 or 4 years ago with his B20 and did just one race I think. He had previously raced and prepared Lotus Cortina's and the previous season we had chatted at various race events when he had spoke with great confidence and authority about his Aurelia's race potential and how his unique engine preparation would give him much more power than existing UK competition B20s, particularly with respect to engine cooling and compression ratios I recall.
I think I am right in saying that this photo is from Donington (I wasn't competing there that day but a friend was) and that whilst he drove with great verve in the race it was shortlived as he retired with engine problems during the race.
And since then there has been no news.
