Road Testing

Testing The Proto-types

During the latter part of 1971, dust ingression testing took place.  This was important for South African conditions where many of the country roads were dirt surfaced.  Sadly during this test period, one of the engineers, Owen Keown, was killed whilst following a lead car and he struck a culvert near the small town of Calvinia in the Cape.  The photo below shows a test car under evaluation after dust testing, with two further assembled test cars visible behind.

These three photographs below show the almost-production ready test models during the dust testing exercise.
