Sadly we have heard from Martin Evans that his father David Evans has passed away. Martin says his father had been in touch with the V8 Register numerous times over many years when YJT 601N was in his care. "He took it on the V8 Tour of the Highlands in 1993, an excellent event, expertly organised by the late Ron Armstrong".

Martin says "my father's first car, a red MGA 1500, was bought new towards the end of his National Service. Since then he had a Frazer Nash Le Mans Replica, a Lotus 7, Lotus Elan Sprint, a Downton tuned Mini (Pre Cooper), Mk1 VW Scirocco Storm and some more "ordinary" cars. Of all of them, YJT 601N (Bracken 1773) was his favourite. It is a bit faster than the first one and has a higher standard of trim and stronger transmission, with Quaife diff".
