An important person in the design of the Hopper special

Ian Hopper’s dog was very important to him and he even ensured that his new racing car was designed around the dog. Behind the driver a removable section was incorporated which allowed Ian’s dog to sit by him.

Hopper Special returns from holiday

Following from my previous post, here is the photo of the Hopper special as it returns from a holiday in Strontian. Note the stag wrapped up on the luggage grid! I think it is fair to say not many other racing cars would have been used in the same manner as this.
