The Rapier is driven by Andrew Cowan and Brian Coyle and the Triumph 2000 I believe to be the 'works' car of Roy Fidler.

I think the Mini No.42 is the 'works' car of Harry 'Sputnik' Kalstrom which was, I think, green and white.

No.34 Mini might be Douglas Wilson-Spratt.

I think I am down that way on Saturday (Aberdare) on the Lombard Bath Rally 2019, in my Cooper 'S'. If you Google event that you will find out where we are going. 

Should you come out, I am running at No.2 with my best friend Bill Rogers who has flown from Arizona to do this event with me.
