Description: We have the pleasure to offer this gorgeous and iconic "Jägermeister" livery Porsche 962C for sale. The Porsche 956 replaced 935 as Porsche’s bread and butter sportscar for the privateer and after the success of the factory cars, Porsche unsurprisingly built and sold a lot of 956s. The only drawback the car had was that it couldn’t be raced in the IMSA GTP class as the foot pedals were beyond the front-wheel centreline and to overcome this, Porsche added 6 inches to the length of the chassis, hence the type number, 956 + 6 = 962. The 962 proved even more popular than the 956 now that the American market had opened up with Porsche building 95 examples. And if you wanted to build your own 962 using a chassis of your own design and build, Porsche were quite happy to help you as long as you bought all the mechanical parts from them, used the 962 windscreen and cabin shape, and called it a Porsche 962. Several teams built their own chassis and another 55 cars were privately built. Eight of those cars were built by Brun Motorsport using a honeycomb chassis of their own design which was fabricated and built by John Thompson of TC Prototypes in England. This particular car, 96

Description: We have the pleasure to offer for sale the ultimate McLaren CanAm “big banger” and ex-team VDS (Van der Straeten) McLaren M8F chassis 6-72. This car was sold new in June ’72 to Count Rudi van der Straeten of Belgium, patron and owner of the VDS Racing Team. It was fitted with a monster 8.1 litre twin-turbo Chevy V8, and depending on where you set the boost dial, was capable of producing anything from 900bhp to a staggering 1300bhp. When asked what is was like to drive, VDS team driver Teddy Pilette, who would race the car during the year in the Interserie, remarked “it was terrific, that is to say “TERRifyingly horrIFIC”… The car’s ownership and racing history is continuous and well documented (see further below) while Trojan’s attestation calls M8F #6-72 the most original of all surviving M8F’s ! Nevertheless, this mighty McLaren is sold in race-ready condition and benefits from a fresh engine, new wiring loom and all four corners rebuilt. Dampers have been serviced and re-valved while the gearbox has had a new selector housing and all new internals including CWP.

Description: We are pleased to offer this rare, early Lola T70 Mk1 chassis SL70/6 for sale on behalf of its current, long-term owner. To many, the Mk1 - being the first iteration of the famous Lola T70 line - is still the purest in design. With only 15 T70 Mk1's made and all of them being accounted for, these cars are sought after and front running in the pre-66 historic racing scene. The history of SL70/6 is listed below in the history section. Key item is that its history is continuous from new, its chassis plate genuine and SL70/6 has no "stories" whatsoever. The car is offered for sale in its current, excellent condition and as last raced in 2011. As the car has not run for a few years, it will need going through, crack testing and installation of a new fuel cell , fire extinguisher and belts. The engine is a strong 5.7 litre Tim Adams SMB Chevy with only about 10 hours running and the Hewland LG-500 gearbox is in excellent condition. SL70/6 also benefits from an accusump anti-oil surge system and comes with a set of spare wheels. A new, 2016 FIA HTP has been applied for and will come with the car. This ex-Mecom Lola T70 Mk1 is eligible for all pre-66 sportscar racing including
Description: We are delighted to offer this genuine and rare 1972 Porsche 911 2.5 litre S/T for sale on behalf of its current, long-time owner. Porsche dominance of the GT classes by 1972 was in full swing. You just didn’t go GT racing unless you had a 911. Demand was huge with Porsche building 24 special lightweight “S/T” models with fuelinjected 2.5 litre engines pushing out an astonishing 270 bhp. With wider rubber hidden under flared alloy wheel-arches, it looked meaner for gone was the slab-sided look. The 911 now had a much meatier look to it and even standing still it looked a lot faster than it did before. In 1972, the 911S/T dominated the new Group 4 European GT Championship to the extent that other manufacturers didn’t see the point in getting involved anymore. Porsches dominance did see the demise of the series in 1976, but it was hardly their fault, they delivered what was asked for, a race winning GT car you could compete with anywhere in any discipline you cared for. This gulf blue factory S/T (delivered w/ M491 option) is one of only 24 built with continuous history from new. Known as the ex-Bartels/Tebernum car with excellent in-period int'l race and hillclimb histo
Description: We are delighted to offer this exceptional 1967 Chevron B6, chassis DBE-3, for sale on behalf of its current owner. Chevron cars burst onto the British GT racing scene in 1966 with a dream debut for its B3, the very first GT car produced by Derek Bennett which won at Oulton Park in its maiden race. The B3 was followed by the BMW engined B4, essentially the prototype B6 which was raced by Derek himself, and the one-off BRM engined B5, which was numbered “DBE-1”. They were followed by the B6 of which seven were built and numbered “DBE-2” to “DBE-8”. Both the B6 and its closely resembling successor the B8, were more often than not powered by BMW's two litre four cylinder engine and went on to dominate national GT racing and enjoy much success in Europe from 1968 onwards. Both the B6 and the B8 shared the same space frame chassis with all independent wishbone and coil-spring over damper suspension, while its svelte and curvaceous fiberglass bodywork by Specialised Mouldings made it one of the prettiest GT/sports racers of its era. With its mid-mounted engine mated to a Hewland transaxle, it was duly built in the required numbers for homologation as a Group 4 Sports car in
Description: “Old Number 1”, the Iron Man of the Le Mans 24 Hours race • The single car that has taken more 24 Hours of Le Mans starts than any other in history • Entered 9 Le Mans 24 Hours races between 1978 and 1988 • Six Le Mans finishes with 2 podiums (third overall in 1980 and 1981) and 2 class wins at the Le Mans 24 Hours race • Competed in 19 races over 10 seasons, including Monza, Spa, Brands Hatch and Hockenheim When a 1972 rules change banned the Porsche 917, French manufacturer Matra won three Le Mans 24 Hours in a row, withdrawing after 1974. The 1975 race saw Cosworthpowered Gulf-Mirages and Lolas mix it up with Porsche Carreras. Then, two French entrepreneurs surfaced in 1976. Jean Rondeau, who had raced at Le Mans in 1972, ‘73 and ’75, and Peugeot designer Gerard Welter both planned to use the Peugeot/Renault/Volvo 2.7-litre V-6. This would have meant strong French support but Rondeau was convinced that the English Cosworth V-8 held more promise. He designed a steel space frame with aluminium box sections around the engine. His aerodynamic GTP cars weighed just 1,796 pounds, generating 415 horsepower at 9,000 rpm. The English engine eliminated local sponsorship, but

Description: We have the pleasure to offer for sale the ex-Riccardo Patrese 1980 Arrows A3 chassis #3. The Arrows Grand Prix International team, based in Milton Keynes (UK), was founded in 1977 by Italian financier Franco Ambrosio, Jackie Oliver, Dave Wass and Tony Southgate (from whose surnames' initials the team took its name) when Rees, Oliver, Wass and Southgate left the Shadow team together with young and up-coming Italian driver Riccardo Patrese . In chassis #3 Riccardo did the entire 1980 and 1981 F1 seasons and achieved the best ever race results for the Arrows team including (amongst others) 2nd overall at the 1980 US West GP, fastest lap at the Monaco GP and pole position at the 1981 Long Beach Grand Prix. During the 1980 season, A3/3 ran in its well known and fabulous looking gold Warsteiner livery (with Penthouse and Rizla as additional sponsors) while – for the 1981 season – a sponsorship deal was struck with Italian Ceramiche Ragno and Utili Beta of Milan. When Arrows moved on to the A4 design for the 1982 season, they sold three of the A3s to wheeler-dealer John harper and retained Patrese's car #3 for display at the factory. When Arrows was sold, the A3 passed into

Description: We are pleased to offer this magnificent 1967 Lola T70 Mk3, chassis SL73/109, for sale. SL73/109 was delivered new as a Mk3 spider to John Mecom, the US Lola importer, on the 21st March 1967 and then passed to Carl Haas, who was in the process of taking over as the US Lola agent. Delivered in plain white and fitted with a Bartz Chevrolet V8, it was sold to Moises Solana of Mexico. Entered by the Aztec Racing Team, Moises raced the car in the ’67 USRRC and also in Mexican track, road racing and hillclimb events over the next two years before letting his brother, Hermann take over the car when Moises switched to a new McLaren M6B. In 1969 SL73/109 was sold to Spurlock Taylor of Panama, Central America who raced the car for some time and won the Panamanian GP in 1970. It was later donated to the Indianapolis Museum where it resided for some years before being sold on. SL73/109 was then owned by Jeff Stevens in the mid-70s who did some minor club events with the car thereby crumpling its nose. Chuck Haines bought the car from Jeff complete and with a Bartz Chevrolet V8, repaired the nose, and quickly sold it on to Fernando Stirling of Mexico who in turn sold the car to Rol
Description: We are proud to offer for sale this beautiful 1965 McLaren M1B (chassis nummer 30-04) which took part in the inaugural 1966 CanAm championship while also benefitting from continuous ownership from 1965 up to the present (see below for the race- and ownership-history). Its prior owner actively campaigned this M1B in the CER race series up to 2014 where it always was a welcome and competitive entry. At that time, the car was in post-66, dry sump configuration. The current UK owner bought the car at the beginning of 2015 after which he immediately ordered a complete no-expense-spared recommissioning by renown preparer WDK Motorsport (all invoices are available). As such, this potent M1B has now been put back to its original, pre-66 configuration : a 5.7 ltre wet-sump SMB Chevy (freshly rebuild) mated to a new and fresh Hewland LG-500 gearbox and riding on 8” front wheels and 10” rears). After its complete overhaul, this CanAm "Big Banger" car made a successfull appearance at the Goodwood members meeting after which it was tested and sorted by Nick Padmore at Donington who was most impressed with the car's quality, riding and handling. More recently, this stunning M1B ran
