Dear Mike,

Thank you for your message regarding your Turner WCH 420
I am sorry to say the car is not known to me as a survivor , and unfortunately we have been so far unable to establish which chassis number this car was.
My factory records show quite a number of Climax cars supplied to The Pit Counter (Motorway Car Sales) and so we have not thus far been able to pin point exactly which chassis number car this was.

I can confirm that the car was owned around 1964 by Keith Burnett who raced a number of Turners , and Indeed was still racing Turners in the USA until very recently!

I have some photos which show WCH 420 being driven by Keith and his wife at Mallory Park circa 1964 at a sprint meeting. They owned the car in 1964/65 and Keith and his wife Ruth were acquaintances of Gordon and Ruth Unsworth.

My hope is WCH 420 is still out there somewhere in a barn waiting to be found!! I would welcome any images or further information you might be able to provide on the car for my archives ,WCH 420 has a page on our website at the following link
