Grant Cowie's Duck Racer

Works Austin Seven race car from 1931 to 1934. One of 4 built. One of the cars lapped Brooklands at 106 m.p.h. in 1933 (perhaps mine). Sold to New Zealand in 1935 where it competed from 1935-1957 initially very successfully on road circuits, speedway and beach races.

Sent from N.Z. to compete in 1936 Australian Grand Prix at Victor Harbour. Purchased by me in 1986 as a very original but battered racing car.

Slowly rebuilt over last 16 years to original specs, using as much of the original car as possible. Affectionately known as the Rubber Duck which I believe derives from its being a handful at high speed at Brooklands.
