One of my highlights of the Windsor Castle Concourse of Elegance was Nick Benwell’s fabulous Frazer Nash Shelsley twin supercharged chain drive sportscar (see my blog entry below). It was therefore great to see the car featured in March’s copy of Classic and Sports Car. The car was built for shareholder and sales director A F Fane who raced it with great success in the UK and abroad before the war. It was the last of the chain drive Frazer Nash sports cars and the ultimate of the breed. Whist Fane was sadly killed in his Spitfire during the war the car survived and has been through only three other owners since.
