    Sadly, the speedcafe article has basic facts and chronology wrong. This is how journalism is in the modern age, nothing you read or hear is fact checked.

    Ron's brother was Louis. RALT stands for Ron And Louis Tauranac. The company was formed after he sold Brabham.

    Ron was the best racecar engineer in the world. The others in his time weren't even on the same page.

    The RALT cars were the class of the field in the day, every time I went to Oran Park or Amaroo to watch the formula 2, 3 and Atlantic races the RALTs won unless they broke down.

    According to some info I have the RALT name was formulated as follows :
    Maybe this is wrong
