'BGC 22B' WATERMAN Ex-SHAW , SCARPINO

WATERMAN Ex-Shaw

flashback to 1970 when Tony Shaw raced the car

One of the 2 famous 'Dell Tune' fixed-head coupes and sister car to John Burbidge's of Dell Garage of Andover nearby Thruxton.
A period news clipping revealed Tony had lightened the car to 21cwt ( from the standard 25 ) and his cylinder head mod gave him an extra 15bhp. That's 1067 kgs weight in metric.
When advertised in 2015 it was claimed to have raced continuously from 1966 to 1996 with 52 victories and podiums. Shaw clocked up 11 during the 68+69 seasons before taking her into the Modsport era with 4 class wins shared between Thruxton and Castle Combe.
Sold to Pino Scarpino in 1971 and by 1974 John Waterman was its driver. He was the most succesful E man in terms of wins from starts with 5 class wins from the 6 known races . 3 were outright ,all 3 being non-championship races at Brands Hatch.

WINS ( 1974 ) : 5

Brian Murphy from Rainford near Liverpool had at least 3 E-Types during the 70s. This was the first one shared with Dave Moore of Mayfield Garage . Dave`s son posted this on a thread in 2007 which helps clarify that the pair raced the same car back in 1970 before both later had other Es. 'My Dad had a number of E Types over the years and enjoyed that period tremendously.
He started off in the late 60's buying a car of Roger Worrell with his pal Brian Murphy which was a Orange and Black Fixed head..`
Murphy advertised the car at the end of the 1972 season but probably continued into 1973 where he set a new lap record at Longridge. The car went to Bryan Litherland for 1974 before going on to Richard Scantlbury in 1976 known as the 'Ziebart' car.
Bryan seems to be the most prolific E racer of 1974 with 15 known races though he seemed to have not gone further south than Mallory Park , car entered by 'Bryrob Plant Hire'. Restored by Fred Cliffe in the early 1990s and bought by Tony Kember.

WINS ( 1970 ) : 8

One of 2 famous Dell Tune Jaguars that were a fixture of Thruxton in the hands of John Burbidge and Tony Shaw. John had a busy 1970 season with 25-odd races of 9 were at the fast Hampshire track . Being the home of the BARC it made sense to chase the BARC Chevron Oils Championship which visited there 3 or 4 times during the season. John won 3 races outright during 1974 these at Thruxton , Combe and Brands.
John who ran the family Bakey in Andover raced this car from at least 1966 to 1974 . An accident whilst Enduro trial Biking in 1975 cost JB the sight in one eye which lead to his racing retirement after such a great career. Later owned by Bob Kerr ,Tom McCallum and Bernie Breeze and is now painted yellow and was for sale in France in 2016.

This was Mills' 2nd E-Type racer and during 1974 Autosport noted a few times it was the ex-Franey/Worswick car.

Originally silver and raced by John Wilson ( 1968 ) ,then Franey before Ted Worswick had a tremendous 1970 season with it whilst red with 14 class wins. With its distinctive twin slit nostrils it then was raced in blue by Dave Moore for 1972. Moore's son posted in recent times...He ( Dave Moore ) bought another car the ex-Ted Worswick which was red but was painted Eggshell Blue also to race alongside Brian unfortunatley in the early 70's my Dad had to sell this car to raise finances and sold this car to Brian Mills.'
5 of Mills' known races in 1974 were at Silvestone and he gained 2 2nd in class finishes in the Blue Circle Championship.
The car continued to enjoy its long race career next with John Myerscough and is still used today on Hillclimbs by Hayden Spedding.
