Peter Bladwell

PRB sports sar maker

An electrician by trade, he started building his own race cars through necessity, a skill base which carried him through Sprites, sports cars and eventually into full time production in 1988. The 52-year old has built around 90 of the Lotus 7-style PRBs and has a waiting list of 20 at any given time. The first car he ever made is still being raced by a Canberra competitor.
