In 1967 the Le Grand Mk5 appeared in a number of minor Continental races where it ran well. The Mk5 consisted of a thin gauge metal space frame employing a number of magnesium castings and suspension parts that made it very light (but expensive). It was fitted with a Cosworth engine and Hewland gearbox and unusually it was fitted with American Airheart disc brakes. It was a small car with a track 2.5 inches less than the contemporary Lotus 41 and a 4 inch shorter wheelbase.
Results were quite good with a 4th at Schleiz the best.
1967 Bruce Eglinton.
