Dave Greenblatt

Inducted 1998 – Motorsport Builder – Road Racing


Dave Greenblatt was the constructor of a series of fiercely fast Dailu specials that were driven by Dave, John Cannon and Peter Lerch. The Dailu Mk I was built in 1961-62 by Dave, Luigi Cassiani and Mike Saggers. It was exceptionally fast, if not always entirely reliable. But when it was running, it was the match of anything on the racetrack, including Lotuses, Ferraris, Porsches and Chaparrals. There followed three more Dailus, all with monster V8s and all with blinding speed.
