PJ Lemons’ car

A new driver to F1 this year is Paul-Jay Lemons, with a very smart car prepared in the Wayne Helliwell Racing workshops. Steve Botham had a close look at it at Coventry, and we asked Wayne for the low-down.

The car is an old John Cayzer car. PJ bought it off eBay off someone who had started to rebuild it. It came to our place and we chopped it back to the chassis legs and cage and started again. We rebuilt it back to rolling chassis stage then along with PJ, his dad and Jamie, it was painted and we finished it off together (I don’t know how but we’ve kind of adopted him!)

The engine is a good old fashioned 454 big block Chevy re-built by Paul at East Lincs. It’s been on Kenny Coleman’s dyno at EDA and been set up. It runs through a “slightly modified” 3 speed Chevy gearbox. Both axles are hybrid LD/Transit affairs. The eye catching signs were done by E-Signs.

What can we say about PJ! He has done a bit of Autograss when he was a kid, and he had a couple of seasons in F2 where he won a couple of trophies and made a few friends.  He got disillusioned with the increasing cost of F2 racing and made the switch to F1, and the team are racing at as many shale meetings as we can.

Here’s the car being rebuilt at WHR…
