GRD - S73 (1973)

This sports racing prototype is one of a handful constructed by Group Racing Developments for the 1973 season to contest in Group 5 and 2 litre racing.  Delivered new to Portugal in ’73 the car is currently wearing the ‘74 Team Seiko livery that it raced with in the European 2 litre Sportscar championship round at Jarama.  There the car qualified 20th driven by Luis Madeira Rodrigues (who often raced under the pseudonym ‘Lumaro’) and Jorge Ribeiro de Sousa.  Unfortunately it suffered a mechanical failure and was not classified in the race.
