Connaught L2

I photographed this car at the HSCC Summer Race Meeting at Oulton Park in July 1992 - it didn't take part in the racing, but was parked outside the paddock amongst other spectators' cars.
It's a 1949 Connaught L2, the third car to be made, and was fitted with a 1767cc Lea Francis engine. These were the first cars to be built by Connaught Engineering, who went on to build Formula One and Formula Two cars in the 1950s.
