J10

The restoration of J10 as a MKIV draws to a conclusion. Outstanding work.

Re: J10

The mark IV's were awesome looking racecars. It's too bad that money, rules and egos withdrew them from competition. I would have liked to have see a fully developed MKIV compete against the 1970's Porches.

In all probability Porsche would have turbo charged the motors as they did for CanAm... Ford and Chevy big block motors were no match.

But Ford had made its point and the emissions regulations and safety requirements demanded all of its engineering focus and financial resources.

Re: J10

Yes, J10 is part owned by Peter Portante (ERA), James Holden and me. Teddy (ERA GT40 fabricator) is working on it. Now it the last stage.
