Emeryson F1

This is one of the competitors in the HGPCA Race for Pre-1966 Grand Prix Cars at the HGPCA's Donington International Historic Grand Prix meeting in May 2004.
It's Brian Ashby's 1961 Emeryson F1, chassis number 1004 and apparently the only known surviving Emeryson F1 car. Although this car is painted in the yellow Belgian racing colours and Écurie Nationale Belge bought three Emeryson F1s, Brian Ashby's car isn't one of those. It was a works car and has always had a 1½ litre Coventry Climax engine, whilst the ENB cars (chassis number 1001, 1002 and 1003) all had 1½ litre Maserati 150S engines.
