History

Dulon is another once well-respected English Formula Ford marque which has slipped into relative obscurity. Bucking the trend of converting Formula 3 cars for the then new Formula Ford engineers Andrew DUncan and Bill LONgley actually adapted a Lotus 24 F1 into the first effort, unlikely titled the LD3. The LD4 was a purpose built device for 67. A total of 24 follow-on models; the LD4B for 68, and the LD4C for 69 were produced. A clean slate produced the LD9 for 1970 which as far as we can tell was little changed over the production span. In 1972 Ian Taylor won the inaugural Formula Ford Festival as well as the BOC Formula Ford Championship and the Daily Express Formula Ford Championship, besting Titan, Lotus, and Merlyn.

A change in ownership in 1973 resulted in new letters prefixing the design number and the Mp15 was driven to good effect by a teen-aged Eddie Cheever. Derek Lawrence won the '73 Formula Ford Festival in one. Dulon was by now a major player in the English Formula Ford scene in this year which saw the first ever Van Diemen produced.

The 1975 Mp17 was a very good looking car but the firm was unable to capitalize on their Festival success and never produced the cars in major numbers. The later Mp19 and Mp21 were evolutions of the design, the Mp21 believed to be the final model offered by the firm after a brief revival by British rock-star Ken Hensley.
