Hi all

I'm edoardo, a young race car restorer.

I'm currently working on a 1974 Martin BM8, the car needs a total restoration and some parts are missing. I'm trying to find any link to the now defunct Martin Racing Development squad to find technical specs, drawings, documents.

Can you help me? any info would be helpful.

Thank you!

I had to look that one up, and I don;t have to do that very often. There are a lot of race shops specializing in vintage sports racers. I would call one of them. Savannah Race Engineering,, Dave Handy, GMT come quickly to mind.

Thank you very much.

It's quite hard to work in the unknown.

Have a nice day.

There is a thread on The Nostalgia Forum that discusses the Martins, but it's not all that long: https://forums.autosport.com/topic/55934-brian-martin-martin-sports-cars/.  I wonder if Brian Martin is still alive.

great thank you!

may be useful to find the owners of the other 4 chassis to get something... if they re still in existence!
