As well as the Dawn-to-Dusk successes and Mira's huge Trans-Atlantic Air Race achievement, Fourniers were raced in handicap events in Britain over many years (RF4s and RF5s).

I think one did well in the King's Cup Air Race in the early days, and Peter Goldin entered his RF4D in South Africa's President's Air Race (although I can't remember how well he did).

Some of this information is in my pile of Sportair newsletters (from November 1970 to September 1975).

More info will be in the three Tiger Club books.
I have quite a lot of old Tiger Rags from the early 1980s too.

And I have a full set of Air Pictorial magazines from January 1960 to May 1969, in which the results of nearly all British air races and aerobatic events were reported.
I also have Flight magazines from about 1966 to 1976 and every copy of Pilot magazine from the mid-eighties to date (plus several odd earlier ones).

They are all available for your uncle's research, he only has to come here and wade through them.

Yours, Bob
