More on Eldred Norman.

It was quite some time since we have been discussing Eldred Norman cars etc. so it was nice to receive this email from Ramon Monkhouse:-

"Just found your article on Eldred de Bracken Norman. I was assistant mechanic at the 1955 GP at Port Wakefield. My main job during the race was to re-fuel the car from a 44 gallon drum pressurized with Nitrogen oxide to give it a faster flow. One of the first teething problems with the car was that it was always tested on a straight road & subsequently got fuel starvation on corners.
Regards.  R"
