Elva Mk7

Here are two photographs I took of cars which competed in the hour long Historic Motor Racing News Gentlemen Drivers Sports Racing Challenge race at the Gold Cup meeting at Oulton Park in August 2005.
This is the 1965 Elva Mk7 driven in the race by Marc Devis and Rupert Clevely. The other badge shows that it has a BMW engine which the programme of the event says is 1991cc.
This is another Elva Mk7, the 1963 car of John Wilkes and the programme doesn't specify who the second driver was for this car. It doesn't specify what make of engine the car has either, but it says that its capacity is 1598cc which seems to indicate that it's the Ford twin-cam engine that was fitted to several of these cars.
