Cooper Bristol

This car took part in the Hawthorn Memorial Trophy race at the Hawthorn Memorial Trophies Race Meeting organised by the VSCC at Oulton Park in June 2008.
It's a 1952 Cooper Bristol MkI - later known as the T20 - and was driven at this meeting by the owner Barry Wood.
Ecurie Ecosse are best known for their efforts in sports car racing, particularly their winning performances with Jaguar D-Types at Le Mans in 1956 and 1957, but they took part in the British Grand Prix from 1952 to 1954 with two cars, including this Cooper Bristol which was driven in the 1952 British Grand Prix by the founder of Ecurie Ecosse, David Murray.
Here's Barry Wood at Britten's chicane leading Pete Candy in the 1936 Riley Super Rat Special and Geoff O'Nion in his 1959 Elva 100.
