ELFIN 623 [2008]:

After the sale of the two JMWs, the hunt was on for something to replace them. It was decided that the Elfin 622 which had had such a short life with us should be repurchased but Malcolm Miller didn't want to part with it. However, Malcolm introduced us to Des Larner (also in Adelaide) who had his 623 (identical to the 622 but with a F3 1300cc Holbay Ford engine) available for sale so the purchase of it became almost inevitable. A very brief sortie back into circuit racing came to a sticky end but, after a rebuild of both car and driver, the two were back on track just one year later. The two have since competed regularly in single car events at Mt Cotton hillclimb (outright winner of the Tighe Cams series in 2006) and Speed on Tweed and had social runs at many GEAR events at Qld Raceway. The photo shows Vern and the 623 in action at Speed on Tweed in September 2008.
