Challenger‑ERA: The 'Emperor's' racer returns to Goodwood

Like many pre-war racing cars, the Challenger-ERA had a chequered life. Initially intended to have its own one-off engine, it was given a different engine that was later replaced by something entirely new, then it was converted to a two-seater sports car and after that it went to California. Then it went missing.

Now, following a 14-year rebuild by current owner Duncan Ricketts, it’s back to the specification it originally raced in and made its competition ‘debut’ at the 77th Members’ Meeting.
