I am sure the car does not need an introduction but it is about time I did introduce myself to my fellow racers.

I have managed to persuade Peter to part with his beloved herlequin Darvi. I am Simon Boulter and I will be joining you from the Historic 750 Formula where I have been for the last 2 years racing the Time 3B no7. I cannot wait to try the car out and look forward to racing with you all. This will complete the SB Racing team so look out for us

Congratulations Simon, I am so please that you have that car, it is a piece of 750 Formula history and I know that you will serve it well. I am so looking forward to seeing what you do with the car and I know that you will race it hard.
Being the other half of SB Racing I can feel the excitement building.

Welcome Simon to the Darvi family.
Just remember that polished ali is a PITA!
Wish we could be there to see the SB team out in their colours together this year, but we want photos please!! Don't forget the mudguards & wing were different colours for Mick & Dick!

Not much of an update but at least it is a start. Finally got the darvi into the workshop and it all starts now. As I have joined the millions of unemployed recently looks like this will give me some time to work on the car. Will keep the updates coming.

Well I could not help myself, once i started cleaning it all got a bit out of hand and most of the car has come off. It will be fully stripped by the weekend and then the rebuild will start. Aiming to be at Anglesea with the car and my first outing with you all.
