Crosslé’s three owners (l to r) Arnie Black (1997-2012), Paul McMorran (2012) and founder John Crosslé.
The Crosslé Car Company Limited, the UK’s oldest constructor of racing cars, has undergone a change in ownership and management that entails exciting plans for its future. Last November, Arnie Black handed the company over to long-time Crosslé customer and enthusiast Paul McMorran, who brings 32 years experience as an engineer and executive in the global oil industry. McMorran intends to take a fresh approach to the business while still safeguarding the values on which Crosslé was founded.
A regular competitor in historic racing across Europe, McMorran’s collection of Crosslé cars includes the 12F that boosted exports by winning the U.S. Formula B Championship in 1968, and the unique 1970 17F Formula Three car originally raced by John Watson. Paul drove the 17F to 3rd place at the Monaco Historic meeting in 2010.
