|(1-15-10) From Jim
"I know this car but I can't put my finger on the details.
I believe it had 2 small radiators (one on each side of the driver). The
air channeled along the sides and then exited out the rear. If it is the
car I think it is then Chuck McCarty would be the driver but the livery
seems wrong! I may have this in one of the old programs. It must be Riverside
1961-63 vintage, but boy the car looks modern!"

"Sportscar Graphic had a test/preview of an English F. Jr with a
similar body, side radiators, etc. The car in the test had an unpainted
Aluminum body. If it were painted red ... ?"
(1-17-10 From author,
racer, and car builder Fred
"That is Chuck McCarty in his Gemini
Mark IV. It was the most advanced Formula Junior ever built.
It had inboard brakes and inboard springs front and rear, side radiators,
and a 6-speed gearbox. These cars were few in number and were never
successful because the class ended right after they came out. I helped
him “improve” the car with a stressed engine block and billet aluminum
rear a-arms. This slide shows the car right after Chuck got it because
he later improved the car with a front mounted radiator. Overheating
was a continual problem, and my experience with the Quasar
says it was due to air trapping in the high points of the pipes."

"Gemini Mk. IV with yours truly at the wheel. Car originally
driven in Europe by Colin Davis. Prior to myself it was owned by
S.S. Republicca de Venezia."
