Chevron Racing Cars were built by Derek Bennett Engineering Limited, a company formed in 1966 on the back of Bennett's success building and racing Clubmans Formula cars. The cars were hugely successful in GT racing between 1966 and 1968 and Chevron moved into Group 5 Sports in 1969 and then to Sports Prototypes in 1970.
A Formula 3 car was built in 1967 but Chevron did not find sustained success in single-seaters until the B25 Formula 2 car in 1973. The company was at a peak in 1978 with the B42 F2 car and B43 F3 car when Bennett was killed in a hang-gliding accident. The company ceased trading at the end of September 1983. Its assets were sold to Roger Andreason and Tim Colman's Andreason Racing & Tuning Ltd, who then built cars as Chevron Cars Ltd. A majority shareholding of this company was owned for a time by Chris Smith and then, since 2012, by David Witt. Chevron Heritage Ltd was set up by Roger and Tim in 2012 to cater for older cars. Meanwhile, Chevron Racing Team Ltd has been run by Vin and Helen Malkie since 1979, who also own the registered Chevron name and Trademark. Chevron has an excellent reputation for building, high-quality, competitive racing cars in a wide variety of models for many years.
This is an excellent example of the B67 Formula 2000/C car, built in 1988. It is one of only four of such cars known to be imported into the US. It has been maintained and is in track-ready condition. The engine was rebuilt by the well-known 2-liter specialist, Jay Ivey, and the car has a period SCCA logbook and is legal in some series of Vintage racing. It comes with spare nose, rear wing, the original roll hoop, and a few odd spares. This would also make a perfect, economical track day car for the beginning or experienced driver.

This car is located in the Salt Lake City, UT area and was originally designed around a smaller-framed driver.
