Group Racing Developments of Griston, Norfolk was founded by a group of ex Lotus engineers and designed / produced a small number of successful Formula cars and 2L Sportscars.
The GRD S72 is widely acclaimed for it’s stiff chassis and it’s very efficient wing and is widely accepted as a very competitive value for money alternative to the Lola T212/290 and Chevron B19/21 etc.

The GRD S72 on sale has been subject to a recent rebuild by Simon Hadfield.
The currently installed FVC could be legally replaced with a BDG for which the adapter plate and wiring loom are present.
