Formula Junior

These three cars participated in the Formula Junior Class in the Hawthorn Spanish and Hawthorn Memorial Trophies race at the VSCC's meeting at Oulton Park in June 2008.
William Grimshaw's 1959 Moorland Mk1, the winner of Britain's first ever Formula Junior race, at Brands Hatch in August 1959 in the hands of Ian Raby.
This is the 1959 Stanguellini of Gordon Wright. Powered by the Fiat 1100cc engine, the Stanguellini was the car to beat in Formula Junior racing until the British teams started to develop their mid-engined cars.
Geoff O'Nion's 1959 Elva 100, another Formula Junior car that had some early successes before the advent of the mid-engined cars.
