Two new names to appear at Earls Court in the sports car field are those of Kieft and Swallow Doretti. The small, light sports Kieft, which has a Fibreglass body on a straightforward tubular chassis, is powered by a single o.h.c. four-cylinder 1,100 c.c. Coventry Climax engine, of interest in itself.
