For the record, and contrary to the view expressed in the article on Brian Lister in the July issue, the Lister F2 was raced, at Goodwood in 1957. After just a few laps it retired, between Woodcote and the chicane, and I helped push it clear of the track. The reason for retirement was obvious a liberal coating of oil covering most of the body. The driver was Archie Scott Brown. Jenks photographed it ‘in situ’ for his annual on single-seater racing cars and that, I suspect, closed that chapter of its life.
