Australian built by Chas Talbot to race in the Formula Mondial series (Gold Star) from 1984 to 1986. All three original log books and design drawings are provided. The tub is two skins alloy with alloy honeycomb glued between, design based on Rosberg and Bowes Ralt RT4. Chas said "that method being most difficult, but very strong and a lot of work to build, however the car performed very well". I can personally account for how well it handles, making it very easy to drive fast. Many other parts used were from 274 Birrana.
