JBW F1

This car took part in the Historic Grand Prix Car Association Race at the VSCC's Boulogne and Hawthorn Trophies Race Meeting at Oulton Park in May 2005.
It's the 1959 JBW F1 car, built by Brian Naylor and his mechanic Fred Wilkinson round a 2½ litre Maserati engine. I saw this car race in the 1959 British Grand Prix at Aintree and once or twice when as a young schoolboy I used to cycle to Brian Naylor's car showroom on Wellington Road South in Stockport to see what cars he had on display there.
It was driven at this Oulton Park meeting by Marshall Bailey.
