1963 Elfin Formula Junior Racing Car

Built in 1963 for David McKay’s Scuderia Veloce racing team, Greg Cusack was the first to compete in this Australian made Elfin.

Notable drivers, Barry Lake and Mike Champion, were also to race the vehicle through the 1960’s on tracks such as Warwick Farm, Catalina Park and Mount Panorama.

In June 1964 the vehicle won the Australian Formula 2 Championship at Lowood, Queensland.

At Mount Panorama the vehicle was raced from 1964 to 1967 in races such as the NSW 1500cc Road Racing Championships, achieving one first in class, one second outright, one third outright, one second in class and one third in class.

In recent years it has raced successfully in hillclimbs and circuit events and last raced at historic car meetings in 1989.

When found in a farm shed in Burrumbuttock NSW, by it’s last owner, the vehicle was in a sorry state of repair and was totally rebuilt and restored by Garrie Cooper and Doug Trengrove at the Elfin workshop in Adelaide.
