Chassis: B19-71-25
Delivered new to Red Rose Racing in Great Britain, this B19 served to replace the team's earlier car crashed by John Hine. He only raced this car twice as well as it was damaged in an accident at Brands Hatch at its second outing. The remains were returned to Chevron and yet another B19 delivered for Red Rose Racing. Although some period reports suggest the car was then scrapped, we understand it was actually repaired and sold as a new B19 with chassis number 25 to a Swiss driver. It was then extensively raced in international events and later in hill-climbs until it was wrecked again in 1977. The remains were sold to Edi Wyss and later acquired by Herbert Gruenig, who retained the car until 2014. It was then acquired by a fellow Swiss enthusiast, who had it repaired around a replacement spaceframe chassis for historic racing. He opted to preserve what was described as one of the most original B19 frames in existence. Very few people knew the car had survived in Gruenig's ownership and during the last few decades as many as five other cars have appeared with this identity, none of which have a direct connection with the original. The current custodian has successfully raced the car in the Peter Auto events, winning the Classic Endurance Racing 1 championship in 2017 and 2018.
