A Racer Fit for a Hero
Classic & Sportscar, Turner-Alexander GT, November 2010
‘A racing one-of, built to take on significantly bigger, faster machinery, the diminutive Turner-Alexander GT is no ordinary car. But then its creator was no ordinary man. Wing Commander KW McKenzie was a decorated Battle of Britain hero and not the sort of person to worry about facing adversity, be it in the air or on the racetrack. In the early Sixties the car and its flamboyant driver were a familiar sight on British circuits, often seen darting between more powerful machines, racking up plenty of victories and fastest laps. But then it disappeared.’
