Unlike the early years of racing this car, for many years now John Gray has found that work and family commitments do not allow him to look after the car alone.

Good friend and fellow driver Gary Pearson [very successful racer of numerous racing cars including  Lister Jaguars, Jaguar D-Type and a Jaguar XJR-9 Le Mans amongst others] introduced John to David Abbott, a freelance race engineer working at Wappenham near Silverstone.

David now helps John run the car and his preparation and standards are excellent. It is to his credit that many people have said that this Lotus Eleven is the one which others should be judged by.

Thanks for all your hard work David, the car always runs beautifully!
