    Having closely inspected the photos of the white number 14 car and the silver number 112 car I’m almost certain they are both EVX256H. The drilled holes in the front panel are the give away.

    You might say you’re dyslexic but you can certainly write a excellent story.
    It’s great how the history of some of these cars are now so well documented partly as a result of forums like this one.
    When i spoke about it on the phone with Pete, it was documenting the history that was important and that is why i posted the info up. Being dyslexic you have a tendency to remember stuff in fine detail.

    I forgot to say the silver car on the twitter link is the same car, what through me off what I thought JE built 2 cars, he did but one was the MK1 and the other was a MK2

    I got 2 more photos from Pete I will lost up when I get the time, I find the up-loader a bit of a faf

    An interesting balancing act with what appears to be one of the XOO Broadspeed cars circa 1969/70.

    Vince Woodman in what I believe to be EVX256H 1971. I’m not 100% due to the rectangular headlights but I know Vince purchased the car from Ralph Broad at the end of the 1970 race season.

    Great forum and what a great thread! Love these old Broadspeeds.
    I have what is suppose to be a 1300 GT Broadspeed engine, complete but the throttle body is missing.
    This is a engine supposed to come from Flemming Rasmussen, a danish driver. I have looked into him and he's car livery is just great. I will try to post a picture beneath.

    But i have 2(at least!) concerns :
    1 : How can I see on the engine that this is a real Broadspeed??
    2 : Where do i find the throttlebody that is missing?

    Looking forward to hear from you, guys :-)

    The «balancing act» picture is in fact Flemming Rasmussens 1300gt group 2 car, and the picture is taken in Denmark at «Ring Djursland» 7/8-1971
