1975 GRD

1975 Group Racing Developments or simply GRD, raced by Rick Carlino and Brian Johnson in class Invitation during Qualifying of the 2013 FIA Masters Historic Sports Car Championship. GRD was a short-lived British constructor of racing cars. It was formed in 1971 with a large percentage of staff coming from those made redundant from the closure of Lotus Cars customer car manufacturing arm. They built cars for Formula 2, Formula 3, Formula Atlantic and Sports 2000 racing classes until a decline in British racing vehicle manufacturing bit into the industry in 1975 that paralleled the oil crisis. The red car in the back is a 1970 Chevron B8, raced by Alec Hammond in class Bonnier.
