British Motorsports Club of South Jersey might have the highest percentage of Elva Courier owners as it's members. Must be the water, or the Vineland Speedway?
This show at VRG 2013 event included Skip Lustig's green Mk.IV-T, Gary Cossaboon's white 1500, and Carl Schwab's red Mk.II-Alfa. Joe Marchione's Courier is missing this year, home being lovingly restored, as Joe is want to do.

Hank Giffin, Norm Berke, Kevin Michael, and Mike Oritt race their Couriers with VRG.

Here are a few pics saved from the FC crash.

I bought my Sn17L near Cherry Hill and my 12L has race history down your way not that I have been able to track any more than the one mention I saw years back.

Joe M. remembers a Mk.1 in my area during mid '60s; thought it might be my car, but the colors didn't match the timeline.

The 1960-61 Vineland SCCA regionals always had four Couriers, and July '60 started ten! Come up with a driver name and the body color and I may be able to match them. Verrry interesting!

I have seen the drivers name way back when you started the information gathering. A few years back on a curiosity I stared picking at edges of the red paint at the back of the car and am thinking I will find the car was Lt blue with orange stripe. name began with a B, if I recall, wish I was good with names. But then I would not be good with technical details.
This summer when I catch up on work and the Tics go into hibernation I will scrape away some of the paint.
