Photo circa 1961 taken by Turner employee Ken Robbins when the car was returned to the works for body repairs.

Known as Pinky for obvious reasons!  The car was restored and prepared by Peter and Gavin Smith for racing in German and other European events.  The car is powered by a 1293 cc BMC "A" engine, and pictured here being cornered hard on 3 wheels by Gavin as he takes the famous Bus stop chicane in the historic support race for the 24hr event at Spa Francochamps in August 1991.  Gavin achieved a class win in the event in the GT up to 1300 cc class . and set a 03.15 min lap time.  The car was badly damaged in a race at the Nurburgring circuit2 months later, it is awaiting restoration.
