Turquoise 5a is Pete Browns.

I don't recognize the red SE5 #94.

The red 5 / 5a #95 was Robin Nicholson (edited as I had to look up his Surname), who was a farmer with a big moustache. He was quite a character, who is unfortunately no longer with us. He didn't do that many events. The car was originally built by the guy who looked after Paul Gill's SE6, I'm also struggling to remember his name.

Wow, how times change..

Alan Furness blue car, Shaun Burnes coupe and your white car (i never saw it without black bonnet and revos)

I don’t even know the other cars :shock:
It only did my first season like that, then it got a new engine, wheels and the black bonnet because I couldn’t colour match the white.. Hethel 2005

Ah, I can see it's David Greenhalgh sitting in the passenger seat of #94. He's not on the championship results for 2004 until the Scimitar Curborough, so he must have done a few events before joining the championship. The rest of the results from Aintree were:

Craig Hughes 52.24
Pete Brown 56.68 (max 10 points)
Robin Nicholson 57.08
Alan Furness 58.09
Paul Turnbull 58.92
Shaun Byrne 60.41

239F shows on DVLA as last taxed in 1983 but 239H doesn't show at all.
I have owned ORE 239F for the last couple of years, and indeed it could well be the ‘Elusive”.... I have an original photo of the advert in the pile of papers that came with the car and it is far from clear what the the suffix is. As you say, there never was an H but the is an F. Also, 50 years old this month so happy birthday! Plan is to complete the restoration and get back on the road next year.
