RE Alfa
RE Alfa
R.E. Alfa driven by Peter Huson lining up for the left hander after the hairpin at Kumalo, possibly in June 1966. This Alfa was built by Ray Reed of Ray's Engineering, Gwelo, hence the R.E. in the name. The chassis and general suspension is based on the LDS Cooper, fitted with a modified Alfa engine. Ray entered the car in the 1965 South African Grand Prix, but did not take part. After Peter crashed in the car during the 1966 Rhodesian Grand Prix, Ray bought back the remains with the intention of building a sports racing car. Ray was killed in an aircraft accident on 8 May 1970 near Nottingham Road in South Africa.

NOTE: Various websites say that Ray died in January 1965, this is not correct.
