If you can add any further information, please email Allen.

If you have any Chevron B19 photographs, either in period or in historic racing, also please contact Allen.

There is a full list of all the people who have helped at the foot of this page.

I am also very grateful to Jeremy J, Pieter, Steve, Philippe R, Norbert, Paul Vesty, Stuart Davey, Nigel Clark, Rupert Lowes, Simon Du Plessis, Gerald Swan, Peter Collins, Martin Fokkens, Jay Bonvouloir and Pete W Lo Bianco for the use of their photographs. The first B19 on Chevron's records is shown going to Chevron's Italian agent Eris Tondelli.

Barber (Birmingham, Michigan) and Shierson (Adrian, Michigan) again dominated SCCA Central Division BSR racing in 1972 in their Chevrons and finished third and fourth respectively in the 1972 Runoffs. The cars being used appear to have been the new B19-71-2 and a new car possibly their B16 converted.

The newer B19, assuming it can be safely identified by its full-width rollover hoop, was raced by Bill Barber and Charlie Kemp in the Feb 1973 Daytona 24 Hours.

Raced at Brands Hatch BOAC 1000 kms (MN p14-17), co-driven by Mc Inerney and fitted with a 1980cc Alan Smith FVC. The Chevron then disappeared for many years until it was bought from John Evans by Colin Pool in September 1985.

Jeremy Jackson has done an astonishing job supplying pictures of virtually every B19 raced in historic events in the UK and Norbert Vogel and Pieter Melissen are covering European and US events most impressively but more pictures of the cars in the 1970s would be very helpful.

My thanks in particular to Simon Hadfield, Marcus Pye, Brian Redman, Ed Swart, Kevan Mc Lurg, Jeremy Hall, Pieter Melissen, Jeremy Jackson, Norbert Vogel, Philippe Rafesthain, Ian Hebblethwaite, Philippe Demeyer, Steve Wilkinson, Kelvin Jones, Urs Hauenstein, Tim Colman and Roger Andreason for their help and encouragement.

Following the success of the B16 Spyder during the latter part of 1970, Chevron put this model into production for 1971 as the Chevron B19 (although typically known as the Chevron B-19 in the US).

Powered by the 1790cc Cosworth FVC engine, the B19 finished second in the 1971 European 2-litre Sports Car Championship behind Helmut Marko's Lola T212.
