The current owner has not used the car since it was completely looked through and race prepared with a lot of new parts. A new fire system, new master cylinders, and new guages, and new pads and tyres are typical of the components which have been replaced. Both the chassis and bodywork were resprayed during the go-thru, which amounted to a virtual restoration.


The last evolution of the Dave Baldwin chassis which gave Van Diemen and its drivers very successful years between 1977 and 1983. Fitted with a narrow track, this car had a good top speed although probably at the expense of handling. Usually considered as the end of an era, this model however proves to be quite competitive in the Oldies Formula Ford series. A wider tracked version was used in Formula Ford 2000 with side radiators.

This particular car was purchased new in 1983 by Andy Middlehurst (UK) who competed in the British P&O Ferries Formula Ford Championship the same year and finished a very creditable second. The car also took part in the Formula Ford Festival at Brands Hatch and finished 8th overall, due to a spin in the last lap. From 1984 until 1987, the car was at the Silverstone Racing School. It belonged to Killian Konig (UK) between 1988 and 1998 who used it only occasionally.
