Chassis #624

Built by Elfin Sports cars (Melbourne Australia) originally to compete as Formula Junior powered by a 1100cc Ford. Formula Junior was a flop in Australia, so Elfin fitted a larger engine to compete the 1.5 litre national Formula. Kevin Bartlett drove the car to victory first time out , at the Catalina Circuit, so these cars where given the ‘Catalina’ designation. Elfin continued to produce Catalina’s, and most Elfin Juniors where converted to the Catalina specification. Elfin Catalinas proved successful and significant in 1960’s Australian circuit racing. Although currently in Catalina spec, Chassis# 642 left the Elfin works as a Formula Junior, so could be returned to FJ configuration. A well presented car that is competitive and fun to drive.
