some other cars that I have worked on

In the workshop at GRD with Ikuzawa's 2 litre sports car 1972.
Tetsu is sitting in the car sorting out the mirrors.


I came across this photo on Chris Vignolesís web site. I cannot remember the photo being taken but thatís Chris on the left, I think he was the production manager. Iím in the centre but unfortunately I canít Identify whoís on the right. The car is decked out with Ikuzawaís sponsors so it must be the same car that Iím leaning on in the photo above.

This pen and ink drawing is of the Thrust SSC car under construction at the G Force factory Fontwell West Sussex in 1995. As you can see from the illustration the car has outgrown the factory. This prompted the move to a larger unit at Farnborough for the final assembly. In the foreground is Mike Lowman adjusting the welding plant while Mike Horne makes adjustments to the nose. RAF pilot Andy Green took the car to a new world land speed record of 763.035 mph (Mack 1.0175) at the Black Rock desert Nevada.

G Force Director James Morton kneeling and Mike Horne work on one of the two massive Rolls Royce Spey engines that gave 25000 pounds of thrust each.

The massive Thrust SSC chassis sits outside the G Force workshop in 1995. As you can see weight was not an issue with this project. The tubes at the rear were for the two Parachutes one being a reserve.
