Alta F2

This car took part in the Cheshire Building Society's Allcomer Race at the Richard Seaman Memorial trophies meeting at Oulton Park in July 1987.
It's the 1952 Alta F2 of Martin Grant-Peterkin, and the programme of the event said this about the car:

'Very welcome is Martin Grant-Peterkin's 2-litre Formula 2 Alta, actually the last car built by Geoffrey Taylor, and sold to Peter Whitehead. The original engine went to power a Cooper-Alta and the car went to Australia where a Holden engine was fitted. The car now has a proper Alta engine out of a HWM, which has just had a rebuild.'

I've previously shown photographs of two of the pre-war Altas, on 22 August 2015 and 4 November 2015.
