Dr. Peter Berry
It is with great sadness we report the recent demise of Dr. Peter Berry, the owner of the 1961 Peter Berry Racing Team. His team raced four cars back in the early Sixties, a pair of Mk 2s – 1 BXV and 2 BXV - and the two new 1961 E type roadsters – 3 BXV and 4 BXV. E type 3 BXV, chassis number 10, competed in some of the first races of that year. Dr. Berry was one of the first three racing teams to be set up with early delivery of roadster E types from the Factory by Lofty England - the other teams being Tommy Sopwith and John Coombs, both experienced in racing.

These three teams each had a pair E types - one of which was the racing car for each team, while the other was the 'on show' Paddock car. Chassis number 850013 - 4 BXV – was driven, at times, by Formula One and sports car driver Bruce McLaren who drove for Dr. Peter Berry in that first year.

Dr. Berry's two E types are still on the road. 850013 the 'road car' and Paddock car being John Burton's side-locked 4 BXV car. While the other, the track racer 850010, 3 BXV, is still running but more modified than the days of Dr. Berry - their team colour back in the Sixties was Sherwood Green, which Chassis 13 still is.
It is to his family we send our condolences. MP.

Car was mentioned in Nov '07 Jaguar Journal. Having factory records stating it was built for Dr. Peter. Berry, color was Sherwood Green. Registration 4 BXV, engine R1031.

Car was owned for 25 years by John Burton, noted as being remarkably sound. Mr. Burton sold the car Aug '06 and is currently undergoing restoration.

Above should have read Nov '06 issue of Jaguar Journal.

The car was sold in poor condition at an indecent price as stated above to a Texan and is undergoing a £100,000 concours restoration in the UK before being exported. The registration plate was lost when the car changed hands and I last saw it on a Montego estate on the M1. However, John Burton had the plate 24 BXV but for some reason, whenever we were rallying, the 2 seemed to have fallen off both the front and the rear of the car.

The car, when sold, was not in 'poor' condition, but in well loved, well used condition. The car was sold to an Englishman, resident in Texas, and the car was found to be in 'very solid' condition. The price was not exorbitant when one considers the prices commanded by non historic E-Types in supposed 'Concours Condition'. Chassis 850013 is undergoing a good quality, sympathetic restoration to as near original as possible.

I bought an early e-type delivered by Peter Lindner, Frankfurt/Germany,
This Car has fitted the engine R-1032-9 which should belong to 850013.
Can the owner help?

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
