The Doctors Coupe - SRE 353G

Great stuff!
Any idea where is / whose is the Richard Ward car now ?
Also any idea of the date of this pic, the other one is presumably current (2001) ?

No idea on the date of the 1st photo. It could probably be worked out by going back through results to see when the 3 of them were at Loton in those cars.

The 2nd photo was Goodwood, July 2001.

I've replaced the images with scans (rather than photos of Slice) to get a better quality, I may go back & scan the other images too.

Edited to correct the no. plate, which was confirmed from another photo: Richard Ward's coupe was/is ATJ 777E:

SRE on the over of Slice in 1985. The caption below describes it as Phil Walker’s coupe! :lol:

I do feel almost obliged to give it a run out somewhere, sometime. Just to keep some competition history up.

Chris, I had just corrected my previous post on Richard's car & added another page from Slice. I went back add added more in on the Prescott post a couple of pages back, with a bigger group of coupes.

Wheels on ATJ are Compomotives I think.
Thanks Ben, more good stuff for the archives.
I have got as far as 1981 in my back numbers of Slice, so already seen the first pics.
I must find the time to continue my researches :|

I couldn't find any photos of SRE 353G in Slice in the period whilst Trevor was hill climbing it, which is remarkable, as it was one of, probably the tidiest car on the scene at the time. I got through to Slice 235 p76 (Sept - Oct 2010) with the coupe line-up at Curborough, it's on the far left, with Red Rocket next to it, so both of Trevor's coupes next to each other

Then (from my archive) Slice 277 p.70 (Sept - Oct 2017) after Nick had the re-spray in blue, it's at the Silverstone Classic club stand, in the middle
