A friend phoned saying he had been offered a CTG, and the vendor claimed it had been designed by Len Terry. I knew Cyril Malem, who ran CTG, and much of the outfit’s work was subcontracted to the racing industry. Len Terry did design a CTG for FF2000, and it won races, but the car on offer was not one of Len’s designs.
