: Chevron B26 GBP 225000

car description

Description: We are pleased to offer this factory, ex-John Lepp Chevron B26 for sale in race-ready condition. The Chevron B26 was the first monocoque sports car from Derek Bennett and followed on from the successful space-framed B19, B21 and B23 line of racing car designs which preceded it. At the beginning of 1974, Roger Hire’s Forge Mill Racing team took over the contract to run the factory supported Chevron racing team from Red Rose Motors. John Lepp, already a master exponent of the marque and who had been racing for Red Rose Motors since 1968, was hired as lead driver along with Roland Barrios as his team-mate, Barrios brought along sponsorship from the Portuguese sherry company, Pedro Domecq which is reflected in the current, period-correct livery of this gorgeous B26. Since buying the car in 2011, the curent UK owner has successfully raced the car in the historic scene around Europe with its last appearance being at Spa CER in 2015. The car has now been re-freshed and is offered for sale in race-ready condition. It has a fresh, zero-miles Hart 420R engine rebuild by XTEC Engineering. The gearbox has been rebuild and fuel cell, seat belts and fire system are all current. This
