Letters

Sir, John Barnard is rightly credited with the first carbon-fibre monocoque for the Chaparral 2K, but it is hardly surprising that this marque should have been receptive to the material when Jim Hall and Hap Sharp had built a complete glassfibre chassis for their mid-engine Chaparral 2 sports car in 1963. The company had first run a chin spoiler on the Chaparral 1 in the 1962 season and used one...
