Connaught Patron Ken McAlpine in A1 also won a race in the 1953 season at the West Essex CC F2 race on June 27th 1953 amongst some significant competition from John Combs in the newer A8 and Roy Salvadori in A7.
It was wet and Salvadori retired his Connaught on the first lap and Ken McAlpine, who was driving his trusty A1 slid off the course on lap 8 and overturned A1 into an earthen bank, no doubt adding to the Patron's growing disenchantment with Team Connaught as the 1953 season came to an end.

 Green Car Congress: Connaught V-10 Hybrid Showcased at Climate Change Conference
Unveiled as a concept last year, the Connaught Type-D is designed to be a high-performance hybrid, with the emphasis on sportiness and handling (true to the Connaught heritage), rather than fuel savings.
That heat transfer would otherwise be one of the biggest difficulties for the V-10 configuration, given a cylinder surface-to-volume ratio much higher than that of, for example, a four-cylinder engine.
Thus equipped, the Connaught Type-D should meet Euro 4 emissions, and could qualify as an ultra-low emissions vehicle in the US were it to be sold there (for which there are no current plans).
