1971 Hawke DL6B

Share on:

David Lazenby has been credited with being one of the primary producers of the Formula Ford racing series. He was the manager of Lotus Components and the creator of the Hawke Formula Ford open-wheel race car.

The first racer created under the Hawke marque was the DL-1. In 1969, the racer became known as the DL-2 when it became a production car.

There were three 1971 Hawke DL6B constructed. The examples shown bearing number 28 was raced by Gary Magwood in the Canadian Formula B Series. It was sponsored by Castoil Canada. In modern times, the car was restored by R. Hornig, G Widich, and JD McDermott.

The Hawke Company went out of business due to financial difficulties. With financial backing from Mac McKinstry, the Hawke was able to re-open for business. The DL-12 series was created. It was a popular model that sold well. Later, due to the oil crisis, the company was once again in financial despair. With further funding from outside sources, Hawke was once again able to produce vehicles. However, Lazenby was not. In 1978, he left the company. A year later, Hawke was out of business.
