Frazer Nash Targa Florio

This car took part in the Twelve Lap 1950s Sports Car Race at the Richard Seaman Memorial Trophies meeting at Oulton Park in June 1993.
It's a 1953 Frazer Nash Targa Florio, driven in this race by the owner Graham Burrows. The car has chassis number 421/200/185 and a Bristol engine and was delivered new in April 1953 to Douglas Reardon-Smith. It was originally painted green. The 1951 Targa Florio race at the Circuito Piccolo delle Madonie in Sicily was won by Franco Cortese in a Frazer Nash Le Mans Replica, and thus the next Frazer Nash model was given the name 'Targa Florio'.
