This is the Birsay 250 which was built for the 250 Formula with a stressed skin monocoque at the front and engine bearing backbone at the rear. It was designed by Fred McArdell of Leeds and built by Jack Butcher and Rupert Steels. It has a Triumph Tiger Cub motorcycle engine and chain driven transmission. I believe it was restored around 15-20 years ago by Tony Steele and may have undergone further "improvements". The Birsay was a regular entrant in 250 Formula Race between 1955 and 1962. It first appeared at Brands Hatch in September 1955 although did not finish. It came second in R2 in December 1955 driven by McArdell. There were several seconds for McArdell and Watson at Brands Hatch in 1956. There are also records of 1st and 4th places in 1956 for Birsay at the 250MC sprint at Stapleford, again with Watson and McArdell themselves driving. This is an extremely rare car, possibly unique. It is in good order but I would advise a good look over before serious driving. It is in pale lemon with an orange nose band. It may be welcome in the class D of the 500 OA Circuit Racing Championship. I HAVE NOT RUN THIS YET BUT DO NOT SEE WHY THE ENGINE WOULD NOT START AS IT HAS GOOD COMPRESSION AND GOOD CLEAN SPARK FRKM THE MAG . the dash dials are not conected but apart from this i can not see why this would not run. this is sold as seen and NO LIABILITY ACCEPTED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES - NO WARRANTY GIVEN OR IMPLIED. viewing welcome .

cash on collectin of vehicle chq will have to clear first before removing .
