1993 Sauber C12A

1993 Sauber C12A

Lot # 101 (Sale Order: 1 of 24)

Nearly twenty-five years ago Sauber took its first steps in Formula One with the striking C12. Designed by Harvey Postlethwaite and Leo Ress, the car was driven by Karl Wendlinger and JJ Lehto, taking the team to seventh in the Constructors Championship with two highest place finishes of fourth at the San Marino and Italian Grand Prix.Looking totally realistic, Sauber 93.C12A.04 is one of five show cars built by the Sauber F1 team for its sponsors and partners. It is based on the 1993 C12 but is finished in the more attractive 'Tissot' 1994 livery and was constructed using original tooling and many original parts. The bodywork, front and rear wings, floor, suspension, steering and cooling appear to be original. The tub is of carbon fibre construction. The ILMOR 2175 engine and Xtrac semi-automatic transaxle are deliberately missing their internal components, and some hidden parts were not fitted.This stunning car would make a fine addition to any collection, as a display piece in an office reception, as a basis for a realistic simulator, or just something to hang on your kitchen wall! NB The car has been inspected by F1 engineers who concluded that the car is an exhibition car only and not suitable to be made into a running car.

1968 BMW 2002 Ti

1968 BMW 2002 Ti

Lot # 102 (Sale Order: 2 of 24)

As sales climbed for BMW throughout the 1960s across Europe, their attention started to focus on Motorsport and their desire to create "The Ultimate Driving Machine". The first model to reflect this was the 2002, introduced in 1968 and their high-performance version, the 2002 Tii, quickly followed in 1970 with a more powerful engine giving 120bhp, a 5-speed gearbox and uprated suspension and brakes.This beautifully finished 2002 Ti was delivered new to Italy at the beginning of '02' production and was raced by its first owner as early as 1968. Copies of the original Italian paperwork show the car finished 1st in class in the Coppa Primavera in 1972 and went on to race at numerous events such as Vernasca, the Coppa Petrobelli, Trofeo Lombardini and the Giro D'italia to name a few. The car was raced predominantly by Italian Roberto Torelli up until 1977.This 2002 was originally registered in Italy with the registration RE206609 and has copies of various sets of old FIA passports, including its CSAI logbook. The car today is presented in good condition with bright silver paintwork with blue stripes. The engine bay is in excellent condition and the interior presents well.Prior to use in anger, this BMW will require a spanner check, however, the car is in running condition and we welcome pre-sale inspections. This charming 2002 would make an ideal entry into historic racing or road-rallies. However, the fact it can boast period continental race history will ensure this little 'Beemer' stands out from the crowd.

1966 Mini Cooper 'S' Spec.  FIA HTP

1966 Mini Cooper 'S' Spec. FIA HTP

Lot # 103 (Sale Order: 3 of 24)

The Mini Cooper soon established its credentials as a rally and race winner, and the stage was set for even faster versions. The first of these - the 1,071cc Mini Cooper 'S' of 1963 - took engine development a stage further and provided the basis for the 971 'S' and 1275 'S' of 1964. The ultimate Mini of its day, the 1275 'S' pumped out 76bhp while remaining exceptionally flexible, and was good for a genuine 100mph - an astonishing performance at the time. This little Green Mini racer started life in 1966 as a 998cc Mini Cooper and for the next 49 years did the things that Mini Coopers do. In 2015 it was chosen as a basis to build a full-race 1275 and during 2015/2016 it was completely restored and prepared to Cooper 'S' racing specification.The restoration and build are now complete and the car is in effectively 'new' condition throughout and ready to race. The rebuild was carried out to a very high standard by Verbaas Preparations of the Netherlands; all the engine and clutch components were bought from Nick Swift Tuning, and since completion, the car has been driven only once, at the Zandvoort circuit. Specification highlights include a lightened and strengthened bodyshell; racing suspension (including Koni dampers); welded-in roll cage with certificate by Verbaas Preparations; full race engine incorporating numerous Swiftune performance components; close-ratio straight-cut gearbox; Salisbury Powr-Lok differential (3.9:1); aluminum foam-filled fuel tank; Lexan windows; lightweight race battery; Stack rev counter; Sparco seat (valid until 2020); and a QSP harness (valid until 2020).Accompanying paperwork consists of the original title document, roll-bar safety certificate, Netherlands registration papers, FIA Historic Technical Passport (Class CT7), and a BMIHT certificate. The Mini's original 998cc engine is included in the sale.This very competitive race car is ready to go, and with its HTP to hand, is eligible for many of the most prestigious historic events such as the Spa Summer Classic, Silverstone Classic, Goodwood Revival, etc.

1976 March F3 763-16

1976 March F3 763-16

Lot # 104 (Sale Order: 4 of 24)

The Italian Formula Three series had emerged in the mid-1970s as perhaps the most important in the world along with the principal British championship. The Italian economy had proved more resilient than most, in the face of economic recession, and there was money to sponsor enough cars to make for a very competitive series. Accordingly, March sold eleven of its total 763 production of sixteen cars in Italy. Raced in period by 'Gimax' (a mysterious but evidently wealthy Italian businessman who didn't take himself too seriously), Alessandro Cinotti, and Francesco Campaci, this March had mixed success with some handy qualification times but no race finishes during its nine competitive outings, with budget pressures preventing it from undertaking more events. Such was the annual influx of new cars to Italy for the domestic series and the European title chase that cars owned by the more prosperous teams, such as Pavanello, often had short racing lives. Unless they were adopted and modified by an impoverished privateer, cars typically ran for only one or two seasons. This was the case with 763-16 which seems to have been abandoned in the Pavanello workshop by the middle of 1977 after only nine events.Long since discovered, and very recently comprehensively rebuilt by expert craftsmen in Italy, Chassis #16 has fully restored aluminium panels, rebuilt drivetrain, is FIA HTP papered, fully in date and ready to race. Eligible for the Monaco Historic amongst other blue ribband events, #16 which had previously been prepared by 'F1 Storiche' is a fine and competitive racer. #16 has a continuous chain of ownership from new, supported by CSAI documents from the mid-1980s onwards. Interested parties are welcome to request a copy of the full 12-page Old Racing Cars Dossier which tells the full story of this March F3.

1985 Toleman TG185 Formula 1. ' Rolling Tub'

1985 Toleman TG185 Formula 1. ' Rolling Tub'

Lot # 105 (Sale Order: 5 of 24)

In the 1970s, businessmen and motorsport fan Ted Toleman began his involvement in various car racing formulae in the UK. Toleman's entry to Formula One was announced in November 1980 and the Toleman teams' debut was in the 1981 San Marino Grand Prix. Over the next two years, their original Rory Byrne-designed TG181 car was extensively developed as it had proved overweight and underpowered, however, in 1983 the new car T183B showed improved form. The budget increased as Toleman's current sponsor - Italian white goods manufacturer Candy - was joined by Iveco brand Magirus and BP. Noted driver, Derek Warwick achieved Toleman's first points finish in the Dutch GP and scored again in the remaining three Grands Prix. These results placed Toleman 9th in the constructors' championship standings.The driver line-up changed completely in 1984. Warwick's performances were rewarded with a Renault contract and his place was taken by Grand Prix debutant and future three-time World Champion Ayrton Senna. Senna quickly made an impression on Formula One in his TG184 car and achieved Toleman's greatest result. In a rain-soaked Monaco GP, he finished in a close 2nd place behind Alain Prost. The torrential conditions forced the clerk of the course (Jacky Ickx) to stop the race after 31 of the scheduled 78 laps. It was a controversial decision that stirred up a conspiracy theory and resulted in much debate about whether Senna would have won. In May 1985, Toleman acquired major sponsorship from the Benetton clothing company. During the 1985/86 off-season, the knitwear firm purchased the team and it was renamed Benetton Formula prior to the 1986 season. Offered for sale is a "United Colours of Benetton" liveried Toleman TG185 rolling tub. This tub, according to our vendor, is understood to be chassis number TG185-01 the last built by Rory Byrne for Toleman Group Motorsport in January 1985. Chassis TG185-01 was purportedly driven in period by Stefan Johansson, Teo Fabi and tested by John Watson with notable results at Monaco and in Germany. In later years we understand the car raced in the Euro Boss Championship with a DFV engine fitted in place of its original Hart unit. TG185-01 is now for sale as a rolling show car without an engine and other ancillary parts such as brake calipers.This is a rare piece of Formula 1 history and at this reasonable guide would make an interesting centrepiece in a showroom, as part of a collection, or as the basis for a full restoration to a useable single-seater.

1995 Mini Cooper Safari Rally Car

1995 Mini Cooper Safari Rally Car

Lot # 106 (Sale Order: 6 of 24)

Very occasionally a competition car becomes known internationally by its nickname, think in terms of 'The Breadvan' (250SWB Drogo), 'Moby Dick' ( Longtail Porsche 935), John Cooper's 'Twini', the 'Blue Train Bentley', 'Big Sam" (240Z Samurai), Gerry Marshall's Vauxhalls 'Old Nail and Baby Bertha', and Dave Brodie's Escort 'Run Baby Run'. To this list can certainly be added the little car on offer here, known throughout the world of motorsport as 'The Safari Mini', so named after competing in the grueling East African Safari Rally, not once which would have been remarkable in itself, but 5 TIMES!!!This amazing little rally car named 'Du Du' (Swahili for little insect) had been in storage since 2004 after returning from Africa in Zebra colours and its last attempt on the Safari in 2003. It was recently purchased by Malcolm Huxley and his lady co-driver Anne Sealand (Annemal Motorsports) and returned to circulation. They took the decision to restore the mini to its former glory, pretty much as it was for its first Safari attempt in 1997 when it was sponsored by Corgi Models. Built originally in 1995 by Robert Plant Engineering (RPE Motorsport), Q290 HBV is a fully-documented 'Group A Rally Car'and was put together for the '95 'Network Q Rally of Great Britain' starting in Chester. Amongst others, it competed on theRAC Network Q; 1995Perth Scottish; 1996East African Safari; 1997, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003Monteburge Rally Sprint, Belgium; 1998 (2nd in class)Goodwood Festival of Speed Rally Sprint. 3rd fastest stage time driven by Robert Plant.The details of its recent restoration and bare metal respray are with the volumes of history that accompany this little car. During the rebuild, it was felt that, whilst the car was quite capable of being rallied again, it was unlikely to be so, and given its likely usage at Goodwood, Race Retro, Cholmondeley Pageant, for example, the original engine was too precious to be used for short demonstrations and cold starts etc. The engine currently fitted is a highly modified 1275 MG Metro Turbo unit and there is a full A4 page in the file with its build spec. There are similar full pages of details on the 'Running Gear', 'Interior', 'Body', and 'Gearbox and Diff'. We understand that the gearbox alone would cost around £2,800 to build from new. Since its rebuild, we understand that Du Du has covered less than 30 road miles.The original 'Safari' 1380cc engine with manifold and throttle body is available to the car's purchaser by separate negotiation. ('Around £1,500'). Corgi Heritage Centre produced scale models of this car in 1997 and 2000, and in different variations with Land Rovers and trailers.Q290 HBV will be accompanied by its SORN details, original FIA papers, spec sheets and one of the thickest photograph albums we have ever seen. A PDF document with full details of every aspect (including its original engine) is available from Guy Lees-Milne at Silverstone Auctions.To do the Safari once in a Mini would be regarded as foolhardy by anyone who understands the destructive nature of the terrain, but five times!!. This little car is a British Motorsport Hero and an important part of Mini history. Rally enthusiasts all over the country are looking forward to seeing 'The Safari Mini' back in action.

1990 Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evolution Works Group A Rally Car - Ex Juha Kankkunen

1990 Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evolution Works Group A Rally Car - Ex Juha Kankkunen

Lot # 107 (Sale Order: 7 of 24)

Few cars encapsulate the drama and excitement of World Championship rallying more effectively than the Group 'A' Lancia Delta HF Integrale. From its introduction as a replacement for the Group 'B' cars in the 1987 WRC to the final year of competition in 1993, the Lancia Delta reigned supreme, taking 46 world championship rally wins, and claiming the Constructors Championship for Lancia a record six times back to back.The car presented here is a true rally legend and a piece of WRC history. This wonderful Lancia Abarth Delta was registered 'TO 23905P' (Abarth internal number 045). Abarth was, and is, a part of the FIAT group and this car was campaigned as an official Lancia Abarth works rally entrant in the 1990 World Rally Championship, piloted by the four-times World Rally Champion Juha Kankkunen. Adorned in the celebrated Martini Racing colours, and with Pironen at his side, they achieved 5th position in 1000 Lakes Rally (bearing race No.2)Its second triumph in 1990, was as a Jolly Club car, being driven by Cerrato/Cerri, this time in FINA livery, achieving a 4th position in the San Remo rally (bearing race No.4). Finally that year, again as a Jolly Club entrant, Droogmans/Joosten steered the car to 10th place in the RAC Rally (bearing race No.17).These results are documented in Paolo Alessi's Lancia Rally Historic Registry. On the 22nd March 1991 the car was transferred to HF-Grifone SRL (with an accompanying invoice) and, now in ESSO colours, was driven by Tabaton. As confirmed by accompanying invoices from CECOMP and HF-Grifone SRL, during March 1992, the car was converted from 16v to HF Evoluzione (Deltona) specification. CECOMP Spa is an Italian automotive company that specialises in developing prototypes and models for car manufacturers and, at the time, prepared the official cars for Lancia Abarth. Interesting, as this was the first car to be updated, it bears chassis number CECOMP '0001'. These EVO modifications effectively gave the car superior handling qualities, enabling it to travel significantly faster over both tarmac and gravel rally stages. On the 2nd February 1994, the car was sold to Deila SRL (with an accompanying invoice) and then again on the 27th December 1994 to renowned Lancia/Fiat specialists 'Walkers Garage Ltd.' of Yorkshire (with an accompanying invoice). It was campaigned by them, whilst being driven by Steve Smith, achieving three top finishes in the 1995 – 1997 National Rally Championships. In 2000, the car was bought by our vendor, who competed in the 2000 Wales Rally GB and Silverstone Rally Sport events. During his ownership, our vendor decided to continue to have Walkers Garage Ltd. maintain the car, as they held it in such high admiration and knew it so well. The current specification of the car remains Group A with R090 transmission, IAW 90 engine electronics, and the latest specification Magnetti digital dashboard. In recent years it has covered little mileage and has enjoyed some fresh paintwork. The car has not been modified from original specification, except to satisfy UK RACMSA Rally regulations, and is now in good condition, finished in the classic Martini colours, and set up for tarmac. The car remains on its original Italian registration TO 23905P and is accompanied by its Italian Rally Logbook. This is a real opportunity to acquire a rare example of a legendary rally car from a very special era, which could prove a worthy addition to any collection or an extremely capable participant in the historic rally scene. The car is accompanied with a spares package (please enquire for details).(The majority of the photos seen here and used on any associated social media are credited to renowned publication 'Auto Italia' magazine - used with thanks)

2005 Fiat Abarth Punto Super 1600 Ex-works Rally Car

2005 Fiat Abarth Punto Super 1600 Ex-works Rally Car

Lot # 108 (Sale Order: 8 of 24)

Super 1600, also known as S1600, is a rally car formula that is primarily used in the Junior World Rally Championship, as well as various national championships. It was devised by the FIA in 2000, with competitive racing commencing in 2001 and still runs today. Super 1600 is intended to provide a young driver's entry point into international rallying, and the World Rally Championship in particular.Like most FIA-approved rally cars, there is a process of homologation in which a suitable production road car design is modified within the limits of a formula's technical regulations. In the Super 1600 formula, 'suitable' is defined as a passenger car that has one driven axle (two-wheel drive) and a 4-cylinder engine that is of naturally aspirated configuration with a maximum volume of 1640cc. At the time of homologation, the car must currently or have previously been in serial production.The production car's standard gearbox is replaced by a sequential manual gearbox with a maximum of six forward ratios. The engine may be modified to produce a maximum power output of 230hp and the exhaust is subject to a noise restriction of 100dB at 4500rpm. Super 1600 requires a production-standard body shell that is made safe for competition with the addition of a roll cage. Certain other modifications can be made to increase the width of the bodywork and improve its aerodynamic efficiency. The weight of the competition car is reduced to a minimum of 980kg, with a lower minimum weight of 920kg if an engine with only two valves per cylinder is employed. In most cases, this is approximately 50 to 100kg less than the weight of the production car version.The car presented here was built and used by Fiat for six events, five in 2005 and one in 2006. and during that period was run by the Italian team N-Technology. In December 2007, our UK-based vendor bought the car from N-Technology, collecting it directly from the legendary Chivasso factory. He has since done a total of 18 or so events with some success, notably 2nd in Class A6 in the ANCRO/MSA Gravel Championship in 2008 and 1st in class A6 in the REIS/MSA Tarmac Championship in 2011. During our vendor's ownership, the car has been prepared by Lancia/Fiat specialists 'Walkers Garage Ltd.' of Yorkshire, who have maintained the car thoroughly and know it really well. The Punto remains in exactly the same 'Super 1600' specification as when it left Fiat, benefiting from a recent respray along with new front bumpers and skirts.(The majority of the photos seen here and used on any associated social media are credited to renowned publication 'Auto Italia' magazine - used with thanks)

1980 Ford Capri Group 1 FIA

1980 Ford Capri Group 1 FIA

Lot # 109 (Sale Order: 9 of 24)

The Ford Capri was a dominant force in Saloon Car racing during the early 1970s, driven by legends such as Gordon Spice, Stuart Graham and Brian Muir. Easily adapted and set up for racing, it was a popular choice for the professional and club driver alike. Certain 'names' would come up on a regular basis when 'winning' was being discussed, names like. CC Racing run by Dave Cook and Peter Clark, Neil Brown engines, and Gordon Spice. Fortunately, the performance developments they originated are widely available today.This particular 1980 Ford Capri 3.0S Mk III was purchased by Capri aficionado Dave Thomas some years ago. Like many older race cars, it had lain idle for a while, but the quality of the components used and wiring for multiple lights bore testament to its long distance race history. Many such cars were built in the UK and raced abroad, with the 3 car family sponsored Belgian Team Willeme being a prime example. Their cars competed in the 1980 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps finishing 11th overall driven by French pairing Jean-Pierre Jaussaud and Jean-Luic Therier and it is these colours that the car bears today. Its first confirmed UK racetrack sighting was at the Willhire 25 hour race in 1989 in the hands of Alex Rogan who raced extensively in that era.The car was fully rebuilt by Dave Thomas to Appendix K Group1 specification with Goodwood in mind. (c/r gearbox, LSD, modified suspension, etc etc).The FIA Historic Technical Passport expires 31st December 2024. Potential buyers should satisfy themselves as to the legality and currency of all the safety equipment in this car including the race seat, harnesses and fire extinguisher.In recent years the car has been used at the Goodwood Members Meeting, Grand Prix L'Age D'Or in Dijon, other Peter Auto run events, as well as a number of Classic Sports Car Club rounds in 2015. This car presents a wonderful opportunity to own a racing Capri and be part of next year's Gerry Marshall Trophy.

1992 Porsche 911 (964) Turbo

1992 Porsche 911 (964) Turbo

Lot # 110 (Sale Order: 10 of 24)

964' is Porsche's internal designation for the version of their 911 manufactured and sold between 1989 and 1994. Designed by Benjamin Dimson in 1986, it featured significant styling revisions over previous 911 models; most prominently in the way that the bumpers, spoilers and wheel arches blended cohesively into the bodywork. It was the first iteration of the 911 to be offered with Porsche's 'Tiptronic' automatic transmission and all wheel drive as options. Porsche chose to re-use the 3.3-litre, turbocharged engine from the 930 with several minor revisions that made the engine smoother, less prone to turbo lag, and more powerful with a total output of 320bhp at 5,750rpm. The sleek silhouette of the 964 was indicative of Porsche's new design philosophy and is regarded in hindsight, as one of the prettiest 911s ever built and certainly, in period, was one of the most powerful.This Porsche 964 Turbo began life as a 3.3 road-registered car and was finished in Rubystone Red. The mileage is reading just 55,000 miles but unfortunately, the car was subject to a Category C insurance write off a number of years ago. However, this led the owner to create the car that you see today. It has been completely rebuilt to a high standard and represents a superb opportunity to race or track-day this very special and very fast Porsche.The car was fitted with a fully welded cage, GT2 spoiler, racing seats, uprated brakes, fire extinguisher, extended wheel arches and treated to a bare metal respray in Rubystone Red. In addition, the engine has been rebuilt and a bespoke aluminium intercooler has been fitted. All this work was carried out within the last 1,000 miles and so the car today presents very well indeed. We encourage pre-sale inspections on this incredible track weapon and prospective bidders should contact the office for further information.

1965 Lotus Ford Consul Cortina

1965 Lotus Ford Consul Cortina

Lot # 111 (Sale Order: 11 of 24)

From its inception, the Ford Cortina Lotus was designed as a quick, modern road car, however, its 'raison d'etre' was undoubtedly Motorsport. It appeared in its first race a mere nine months after its introduction in January 1963 and only a few weeks after becoming generally available, announcing its arrival by taking 3rd and 4th place at the Oulton Park Gold Cup meeting in September of that year. Whilst based on a production two-door Ford body shell, Lotus Cortinas were far from standard and featured uprated engines, brakes, suspension and lightened bodies. Other visible exterior changes included the factory colour scheme of Ermine White with a Sherwood Green stripe and the fitting of front quarter bumpers and discreet Lotus badges.Over the course of the next few years, many famous drivers including Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Peter Arundell, Jacky Ickx, Jack Sears and Sir John Whitmore would achieve notable success driving the works Cortinas of Team Lotus. In addition to numerous victories in individual races, Jim Clark won the 1964 British Saloon Car Championship outright and Jack Sears achieved a class win the following year, however, one of the greatest successes was achieved, not in a Team Lotus works car, but in one of the Alan Mann Racing cars when, in 1965, Sir John Whitmore won the European Touring Car Championship with an incredible eight class victories and six outright wins from nine starts.This, well presented, 'Lotus' Cortina started life in 1965 as a left-hand drive Ford Cortina 1200 and was delivered new to Denmark where it was registered and used for many years as a road car. The fact that it had a Danish Registration Certificate would ease the process of registering the car here in the UK should a new owner prefer to use it on Road Rallies etc. The owner before our vendor was a well known Danish saloon car racer in the past and had competed at the Roskilde Ring and other Danish circuits in Minis, an Escort BDA, Chevrolet Camaro, Ford Capri and others. He had not been looking for a Cortina but, at the time, was working as a salesman at a Ford dealer and this Cortina came in as a part-exchange against a new car. It had obviously been cared for, and it seemed a shame to 'trade' it, so he purchased it for himself to use as a 'Sunday' classic.However, with classic saloon car racing going from strength to strength in Denmark (as it was throughout Europe) the racing 'bug 'returned and it was decided to prepare his Sunday car for the circuits. With our vendor's help sourcing parts from the UK (they were old friends), the Cortina was initially prepared as a 1500GT in 2001 and they went racing and sprinting with our vendor looking after the mechanics. The engine was later changed to a Lotus Twin-Cam and the car prepared, pretty much, as a 'Lotus Cortina'.In 2007/8, the car was purchased by our vendor and he decided to invest in a bit of a rebuild. The plan was to race it in Denmark and Sweden as part of a three-car team and, as the other two Cortinas were finished in their team colours of Venetian Red with a Silver stripe, it was appropriate to paint this car in these colours.The all-steel, 168bhp, twin-cam was rebuilt by respected Swedish tuner Roger Svensson in Halmstad and has only been used for two sprint races since. The power is fed through a Quaife close-ratio gearbox with alloy bell housing and on to a Salisbury limited-slip differential with a 4.44 CWP. The suspension is mainly Leda with adjustable shocks on the rear. The front brakes are Lotus Cortina with a Cortina GT set up at the rear. The fuel tank is legal and in date but is fairly small and only suitable for sprints, however, it would be easy to change. Please note that the seat and harness are now out of date and will need replacing before the next outing. Basically, the car has been built to comply with FIA-Appendix K regulations, Period F, Class TC8 and has a current DASU (Historic Vehicle Identity Form) which will enable it to run in a number of championships, however, an FIA HTP will be required to run in U2TC. The Cortina is supplied with four original Lotus steel wheels and four Minilites all with tyres and is fitted with a transponder and an AMB in-car display for accurate lap timing.Competition Lotus Cortina prices continue to climb and, at this guide, this well presented and carefully built car looks like a very sensible way into sixties saloon car racing.

2003 Porsche Boxster

2003 Porsche Boxster

Lot # 112 (Sale Order: 12 of 24)

This, Porsche Boxster racer, was built in 2016 by Birmingham-based EMC Motorsport. The basis of the car is a 2003, 986 road car that originally had a 2.7 engine, so was not fitted with the traction control or PSM systems that can confuse the ABS on some later 3.2 cars. EMC Motorsport built a new 3.2 race engine in 2016 and at the same time fitted a newer and lower-ratio five-speed gearbox. Our vendor enjoyed racing the car last year in the CSCC Modern Classics and CSCC Open Series. He informs us the car could also be eligible for a number of other series at club level including the Porsche Club Championship, Toyo Tyres Porsche Championship, CSCC Modern Classics, CSCC Open Series, CSCC New Millennium, 750mc Club Enduro, 750mc Roadsports, Welsh Sports & Saloons, CNC Heads Sports/Saloons Championship, Northern Saloon & Sportscar Championship, and the MSV Track day Championship. In terms of the car's specification, the 3.2 engine is reported to produce 270 BHP and has been mapped by 'Superchips'. An X51 sump and breather isolation kit are fitted along with an updated map to the ECU. The flywheel has been lightened and a lightweight 'Red Top 30' battery, along with Anderson plug, fitted. A full FIA multipoint roll cage has been welded into the car and the six-point harness and Cobra Suzuka Pro seat are both in-date. The OMP steering wheel has a quick release boss and the interior of the car has been painted to match the outside. The suspension has Gaz Gold adjustable coil overs, front and rear Eibach adjustable anti-roll bars, a Kaaz LSD is fitted, and a full geo-alignment and chassis setup have been completed by Centre Gravity. The five-speed gearbox is from a 40,000-mile standard road car fitted with a 'quick-shift'. New catalytic converters are fitted along with a stainless steel exhaust rear box. Retardation of this rapid Boxster is helped by GT3 brake ducts on the front and there are additional front and rear brake ducts directing cooling air on to the callipers. Included with the car are three sets of spare wheels and tyres (vendor values around £2.5k) and a very useful 'VBOX' system (vendor values around £800) making this a very affordable package with little additional expenditure necessary before you can 'go racing'.This cracking little Porsche offers an excellent entry into motorsport and would be eligible for at least a dozen championships, so no matter where you live in the UK, a weekend of tremendous fun could be just down the road.

1991 BMW E30 M3.  Ex-Tim Harvey

1991 BMW E30 M3. Ex-Tim Harvey

Lot # 113 (Sale Order: 13 of 24)

In 1991 the British Touring Car Championship regulations changed from multi- class, 'Group A' regs to the new 2-litre formula in the hope of building up the grids and providing closer racing. It was very successful, attracting many more manufacturers and providing the competitors and viewers with some of the closest racing the series had seen in many years.In order to comply many of the BMW teams altered their existing Group A cars with ballast and a reduction in engine capacity to two litre. This was not the case for Vic Lee Motorsport as they completely re-engineered the most successful touring car of the Group A period to fully take advantage of the new 2-litre formula regulations. The Vic Lee built BMW E30 M3s boasted a range of modifications that, in today's parlance, involved 'thinking outside of the box'. For example: the fuel tank was relocated to optimise the car's centre of gravity, a flat floor section was used as was a side exit exhaust. Although utilising BMW Motorsport's latest rear suspension components, front uprights and in-car adjustable anti-roll bars, the VLM cars also benefited from a host of geometric alterations (thanks to engineer David Potter) and also utilised a Hollinger 6-speed dog engagement gearbox, all adding up to produce the most competitive BMW and the 'car of the season' with Tim Harvey's teammate, the legendary Will Hoy winning the 1991 championship.We are excited to offer this ex-Tim Harvey, Labatt's sponsored, 1991 BMW E30 M3 - one of the five built by Vic Lee Motorsport for the '91 British Touring Car Championship. Tim took this car to one outright win in the series finale at Silverstone, and two podiums, en route to claiming 8th place in the championship by season end.We're informed that this wonderful piece of 90's Touring Car history has retained its original livery throughout its existence and has been part of private collections since 1992. More recently it has been persuaded from retirement, race prepared, and has been doing battle in the HSCC Super Touring Car Challenge running alongside other BMW M3s whilst mixing it with later generation machinery. This iconic E30 M3 offers a gateway into numerous historic championships and as demand rapidly increases for genuine examples of these dynamic machines, finding a competitive car with this level of provenance will become increasingly difficult. Genuine period Group 'A' BMW M3's are now becoming recognised as an excellent investment, particularly as the FIA has now recognised the period and created a class in which the M3 is fiercely competitive.

1989 Ford Sierra RS500  Ex-Tim Harvey

1989 Ford Sierra RS500 Ex-Tim Harvey

Lot # 114 (Sale Order: 14 of 24)

With the Cosworth RS500, Ford transformed the humble Ford Sierra into a proven race winner, completing 500 in order to homologate the model for 1987. The actual build was outsourced to Aston Martin's Tickford operation and all 500 cars, based on the three-door Sierra, were sold in the UK. Under the bonnet Cosworth's YDB engine had a stronger block, Garrett T31/T04 turbocharger with a bigger intercooler and fuel pump, uprated oil and cooling systems and better induction. The model won the 1987 World Touring Car Championship (in fact it proved so dominant the series was cancelled!), managed no less than 40 straight victories in the BTCC (a record that still stands) plus consecutive wins at Bathurst in 1989-1990.Tim Harvey.A prolific racing driver from Farnborough, Tim was highly successful in touring car races during the 1980s and 1990s driving for seven different manufacturers, winning the British Touring Car Championship in 1992 with BMW, and amassing 16 wins and 48 podiums.He later drove for Spice in the World Sportscar Championship, before enjoying half a dozen successful seasons in the Porsche Carrera Cup from 2004 until 2010 finishing second in 2004, 2006 and 2007 before triumphing in 2008 and topping that with nine wins out of the first ten races in 2010 to dominate the championship again that year. He remains the Porsche Championship's most successful driver with 35 wins and over 150 podiums.Amongst a number of BRDC, Charity and Media commitments, Tim remains a household name for his knowledgeable and witty commentary for ITV covering the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.This Car.Built by Andy Rouse Engineering and raced with Labatt's sponsorship by Tim Harvey, this car has a good BTCC history (finishing 7th overall in 1989 and 3rd overall in 1990) and won outright at Thruxton and Donnington in '89. It was continuously updated and fitted with a Getrag 5-speed gearbox, viscous LSD and more. In late 1990 the car, which is believed to be the only Labatt's Sierra surviving in original BTCC specification, became part of Martin Johnson's private collection of ex-race Sierras before eventually being sold in Australia in September 2008. It was never raced there but used for the occasional demonstration, including the Muscle Car Masters at Eastern Creek, but was kept fully maintained, before being purchased by Paul Smith and returned to the UK with an eye on the developing Super Tourer Championship.The dream was to come true in 2013 when Paul persuaded Tim to form a team to contest the two rounds of the Super Touring Car Trophy during the Silverstone Classic in July. Having not driven the car for over 20 years, Tim was given a brief chance to reignite his passion for the iconic winged wondercar during a days testing the 560bhp machine at Silverstone.'It's absolutely as it was after my final race,' he reported. 'It must be the most original Cosworth Sierra still out there right down to the switches and stickers.He obviously became comfortable with the car quite quickly as the team qualified third and Tim placed his old chariot second in the race on Saturday with the fastest lap to boot.During 2014, the engine was fully rebuilt by David Mountain's Essex based 'Mountune', leading motorsport engine builders.The car has been maintained in a 'race-ready' condition and is offered for sale at Silverstone Auctions pretty much on-the-button. We at Silverstone and the vendor are so confident about this wonderful RS that, included in the sale price, is an entry for Saturday's Super Touring Car race (29th July) and should the car's new owner not be able to oblige, Tim Harvey has said he will happily be reunited with his old racer.A remarkable opportunity to own one of the most recognised and admired Touring Cars in motorsport's history and spend a day with one of motorsport's nicest guys.

1997 BMW 320 (E36) STW McLaren

1997 BMW 320 (E36) STW McLaren

Lot # 115 (Sale Order: 15 of 24)

The Super Touring E36 was BMW's replacement for the legendary E30 M3. It was introduced in 1992 and was an instant success. This E36 BMW was built by McLaren in 1996 and was used as a spare car by Schnitzer in the 1997/98 season. In 1999 the car was given to BMW Italy and was known as the 'CiBiEmme' car driven by Fabrizio de Simone in the Italian Super Touring Championship. It won 2 races outright in that season with 8 podiums. In 2000, the car was run by the Cristy's Team in the European Super Touring Cup and driven by Stefano Gabellini. In 2002 chassis 008 was sold to Hungary and raced in the local Hungarian Touring Car Championship, winning the championship outright in 2004.More recently, the car was purchased by Jim Whelan in 2013 and brought back to the UK, where it competed in the 2014 HSCC Super Touring Car Championship. Following a brief shake-down at Donington, the car was rebuilt and returned to its original 'CiBieEmme Castrol' livery. Purchased by our vendor in 2015, he has prepared the car to his exacting standards and it is currently in stunning/museum-quality condition throughout.The paintwork is better than on most road cars and the engine bay and interior are a joy to behold. The car is on the button and ready to be raced by its next owner. We encourage pre-sale inspections and welcome prospective bidders to contact the office for further information. This E36 is an absolute show stopper and would be welcome at the very best Super Touring events across the world.

1967 Ex-Works Hillman Imp

1967 Ex-Works Hillman Imp

Lot # 116 (Sale Order: 16 of 24)

The works homologated the Rally Imp as a 'Group 3' car for 1966. Badged as Hillmans, Singers or Sunbeams, the Rally Imps boasted 998cc twin-carburetor engines, servo-assisted brakes, better engine cooling and competition suspension among many other improvements. Driving a works Imp, Rosemary Smith won the 1965 Tulip Rally (a handicap event) outright and went on to secure numerous Coupes des Dames and class wins, while other prominent Imp exponents included Peter Harper, Roy Fidler, Andrew Cowan and Colin Malkin.During the next 1967/68 season the competition department came under Chrysler control and the works Imps (those that were prepared by Rootes' Competition Department to be used in rallies by the works drivers, such as JDU46E), used a 998cc engine. This was achieved by boring right out, and re-sleeving, on selected blocks, to a bore of 72.5mm. Wells Rings. Stroke remained unchanged at 60.4mm. It had a Smiths Tachometer, Lotus Cortina calibrated speedo, and ancillary gauges in a cluster behind the steering wheel. Its suspension was altered significantly with stronger springs and shock absorbers and the cars were fitted with a full rollover bar and harnesses, Halda Twinmaster, Smiths/Heuer Mastertime, and stopwatches. They had bigger radiators and an oil cooler, high-lift camshaft, twin SUs or Strombergs, larger valves, double valve springs, special Aston Martin exhaust manifold, and a compression ratio of 10.5 to 1. A small front mounted radiator accompanied the small rear header tank and they were joined by red-painted water pipes running straight through the inside of the cars. The specification also included body air scoops to feed the engine, competition suspension, Ferodo Brakes with VG95/1 anti-fade linings, vacuum servos, a Triplex heated windscreen with large plastic anti-mist rear windows. GRP Bonnet and Boot, Alloy Fuel Tank with wood dip fuel gauge, and Steel Wheels with Dunlop SP44 radial 'Weathermasters'. At the end of this season, with the introduction of the Mk1 Escort to the Rally scene and the Imps inability to compete on power, the Rootes Competition Department switched from preparing works cars to supporting private teams and drivers, and in 1969 Chrysler withdrew from official rallying. JDU 46E COMPETITION HISTORY Driven by Peter Harper/Robin Turvey the car debuted in the 1967 Monte Carlo Rally with the allocated No 170 and finished 2nd in the Group 3 Class and 46th overall and awarded the Challenge Trophy. Not bad for the gruelling, 3,400-mile event.Driven by Peter Harper/ David Pollard went on to compete in the 1967 Tulip Rally with the allocated No 89 and achieved its best international rally result coming 2nd in class and 10th overall.Driven by Roy Fidler/Alan Taylor competed in the 1967 Alpine Rally/Coupe des Alpes with the allocated No 83 but retired due to head gasket problems.The car was also used as a service car by Des O'Dell the Rootes Competition Manager in the Circuit of Ireland Rally and Scottish Rally in the same year. JDU 46E was prepared for the November 1967 RAC Rally to be driven by Rosemary Smith/Val Morley and allocated No 5. Due to the outbreak of 'Foot and Mouth' and the movement restrictions put in place, the 1967 RAC Rally was cancelled at the 11th hour leaving many disappointed Teams, Drivers and Spectators already in situ. To overcome this understandable disappointment, the Rally organisers, using nearby MOD land not affected by the restrictions, put on what has come to be known as a 'Rally Cross' and this was the first rally cross event to be televised, and JDU46E driven by Rosemary Smith was a proud entrant. In 1968, the car was converted to a 'Group 6' spec, which is how it remains. In 1969, after Chrysler withdrew from official rallying it is believed that JDU 46E was kept on by Rootes for a number of years as a Service Car before been sold for private rallies. Years later, it was discovered by an avid Imp fan being used amongst other cars in a grass track racing business. He approached the owner and bought it and kept it very much private in his collection for years until our vendor was lucky enough to purchase it. The paintwork is rather flat and carries numerous battle scars from its competition life and it could not by any means be described as a show car, however, the engine has been verified as being the engine prepared for Rosemary Smith, and its patina, provenance, and the fact that it was piloted by the legendary Rosemary Smith, the talented, glamorous and witty 'Queen' of the sixties rallying scene, mean that this little rally car fits very neatly into the annals of British Rallying History.Our vendor has generously agreed to include in the sale, the original Monte Carlo and Tulip Rally finishing awards and papers along with the DVD footage, original photographs, and further related automobilia from the 1967 season.

1961 FIA Jaguar MKII 3.8

1961 FIA Jaguar MKII 3.8

Lot # 117 (Sale Order: 17 of 24)

This 1961, FIA MkII 3.8 Jaguar has been subject to a full restoration over the past five years with a full photographic record which is included in the history file. The car was built with the specific intention of racing in the annual Spa Six Hours endurance race but, having been put together strictly in accordance with FIA Regulations, it will obviously qualify for several other race series, both here and abroad, that take place under the auspices of the FIA. All work carried out to the car was done with the vision of creating an 'appreciation' of the 'works cars' as raced by Hill, Salvadori, Hulme, Moss, Clark and others in the early 1960s, and the car does indeed look the part with the exception of those changes made to meet modern safety requirements.Exact details of the appropriate spec were gathered from a number of well-known Jaguar experts, including Peter Wilson (ex-Jag Competitions Dept and author of 'Cat Out of the Bag'), the legendary Norman Dewis, and ex-Jaguar test driver Peter Bell who is a mine of information on the Mk II and the son of Ken Bell formerly of Coombs. Power comes from a 3.8 built to the correct 'homologation spec' using new components with all engine machining carried out by Chesman Motorsport in Coventry. The components include: 9.1 competition pistons, high-lift cams, flowed head, and larger valves, all fully balanced and lightened as required. The fuel is supplied by a couple of SU HD8s and exhaust gasses are dealt with by a bespoke system from 'Ecosse Motorsport' in Girvan. A high-torque starter motor gets everything spinning and a 'Kenlowe' fan aids engine cooling, The gearbox is an early Moss, non-overdrive example and the brakes use new BG calipers with slightly larger bores to meet homologation requirements.The front suspension is as standard with Poly-bushed components and one-degree negative-camber. A standard anti-roll bar is fitted but the car is supplied with a thicker Harvey Bailey bar along with a short-ratio steering rack for events where these parts are allowed. Furthermore, there are lowered coil springs with increased poundage (Coombs spec), adjustable Spax shock absorbers and a Chris Adams wheel bearing adjustment kit, which we're informed helps to reduce brake knock-off. The rear suspension has lowered springs, strengthened components (as per the 'Works' cars), adjustable Spax shock absorbers, Polybushes, reinforced Panhard Rod fittings, a Thornton 'Power Lock' LSD and strengthened half-shafts.The fully fitted roll cage can be removed if required, and the fuel tank holds 30 Gallons with twin SU fuel pumps. A number of bodywork modifications have been undertaken replicating the original works cars and the side windows are 'Lexon' polycarbonate. Both front and rear screens are heated, a Lifeline fire system has been fitted, and the seat and harness are reported to be in date.Supplied with new wheels with Dunlop M section tyres, the aforementioned history file, a dyno set-up sheet (Aldon Automotive. December '16), and a valid MOT, this lovely old Jaguar certainly looks like a very effective historic racer and may well offer exclusive access (regulations permitting) to a number of prestige Historic Motorsport events around Europe.

1951/2 Tojeiro-Jap

1951/2 Tojeiro-Jap

Lot # 118 (Sale Order: 18 of 24)

Looking like a cross between a mechanical grasshopper and a fairground ride, "The Asteroid" was responsible for ensuring that the names of Brian Lister, Archie Scott-Brown, John Tojeiro and Don Moore will always remain in the annals of motorsport history First registered on 21/04/1952 and intended for race, hill climbs and sprint use, the Tojeiro-JAP was notable as (a) the first car to bear a BHL' (Brian Horace Lister) chassis number, (b) the second Tojeiro made and (c) the machine that put Archie Scott-Brown on the map. Inspired by an Autocar article in which J. Onslow Bartlett had extolled the virtues of mating a modified Jowett Jupiter four-speed manual gearbox to the well-proven JAP 1100cc air-cooled V-Twin, Brian Lister chose a similar drivetrain for chassis BHL 1. Bodied in aluminium (except for the fabric covered tail), and wearing simple mudguards to comply with contemporary sports car regulations, the Tojeiro-JAP boasted an excellent power-to-weight ratio and low centre of gravity.Nicknamed The Asteroid' by its creator, the two-seater proved quick with Brian Lister aboard but nigh on unbeatable once Archie Scott Brown took the wheel. Part of Lister's circle alongside renowned engine tuner Don Moore, Scott Brown won some eleven races or classes aboard the Tojeiro-JAP during 1952 - 1953 at Snetterton, Silverstone, Prescott and Thruxton.Keen to acquire a car that would be dominant in its class, Peter Hughes - another of Brian Lister's friends - began campaigning The Asteroid' from the summer of 1953 onwards. Having progressed to the Tojeiro-JAP via a Delahaye and Allard, Hughes extended its winning streak at Shelsey Walsh, Prescott, Charterhall, Bo'ness, Crimond and Barbon etc. Although, arguably his most impressive result came during the Daily Record & Newcastle Journal International Race Meeting at Charterhall on 6th August 1955 when he piloted the two-seater to fourth place overall against larger-engined Connaught ALSR, Lotus and Elva opposition.A sometime 'Ecurie Ecosse' driver, Hughes was tragically killed in a road accident on the return journey from Le Mans where he had been assisting the team as a timekeeper. Thereafter, the Tojeiro-JAP is known to have passed through the hands of G.M.G. Oliver, Alistair Dent Hutton, Northern Sports Cars Ltd, Peter Jones, W. Richard Heylings, John Pacey, Richard Procter, John Baker, Jeremy Wade, Jonathan Bradburn and Frank Gourlay before entering the current ownership during late 2009.Discovered in a barn minus much of its original bodywork and drivetrain (the latter having been modified or replaced over time), the Tojeiro-JAP was extensively restored over the next few years. Still carrying its original BHL 1' stamping, the chassis was refurbished to original specification as was the suspension.Road registered as 3 DPT' (the last of its period number plates which was issued in September 1959) the Tojeiro-JAP is capable of road as well as race use. Powered by an authentic JAP 1100cc V-Twin allied to an equally correct Jowett Jupiter four-speed transmission, it remains a truly invigorating drive with more performance to come if the engine were to be set-up for methanol. Rewarded with a 1st-in-class upon its return to the Bo'ness hill climb during September 2012, the two-seater claimed another 1st-in-class at Shelsey Walsh last May and enjoyed an outing at Castle Combe.A historically significant motorcar, chassis BHL 1 is offered for sale with an interesting history file (including a copy of its first buff logbook) and the MSA Historic Technical Passport.

1971 Lola T212  (HU37)

1971 Lola T212 (HU37)

Lot # 119 (Sale Order: 19 of 24)

Created by British designer Eric Broadley during more than four decades at the helm of Lola Cars, the T212 was a very successful sports car and went on to win races at all sorts of venues and international 'Blue Riband' events.In 1958, with the help of his cousin, Graham Broadley, Eric built a sports-racing car, powered by a Coventry Climax engine, around a tubular steel space frame chassis of his own design. The creation was immediately quick and in 1959 it proved itself to be a serious rival to the, previously unbeatable, Lotus Eleven. Following a crash at Goodwood that resulted in a trip to hospital, Broadley then made the decision that his future lay in the design and fabrication of racing cars, rather than driving them.The Lola T212 offered here was constructed in 1971 and designed for 2-litre sports car, 'Group 6' competition. This car is Chassis number HU37 and was the very last 212 built by Lola (1 of 36). HU37 was sold new to Canadian brothers Maurice and Roger McCaig in 1971, however, probably due to the distance between circuits in the USA and Canada, it appears they did not compete in many events. There is some evidence showing them classified 9th at the Daytona 6 Hours, a race which was won by Andretti and Ickx in a Ferrari 312PB. They also competed at Sebring and Watkins Glen in the 1972 Championship.The car was then sold into the Baker family collection and raced by Duncan Baker in the late 80s and early 90s in historic events. It continued to be maintained in this collection without being raced for a number of years until it was offered for sale when the Baker's father passed away and his sons had lost interest. In 2006, the car was purchased by David Gathercole in the U.K. He fully restored the car in 2006 from the ground up, using the original chassis frames but re-skinning the tub. The engine frames have the original Arch Motors numbers on them. The car was fitted with a brand new Richardson FVC (Ford Cosworth 1790cc) in 2007. Following this complete re-build, HU37 was purchased by Anthony Hancock(U.K.) in 2007. The car won at Donnington and the Silverstone Classic "World Sports Car Masters" in 2008, and they also competed in the Le Mans Classic in 2008. The Hancock family completed only 1,800 miles with the car whilst in their ownership. The current owner acquired the car in 2009 following an engine refresh (Geoff Richardson) and has only competed in a small number of events including the World Sports Car Masters at Brands Hatch in 2010. The little Lola has also enjoyed a few outings in Irish Historic races in recent years and the engine currently has covered 650 race miles.The car comes with a good history file, a full set of slicks, four spare wheels with wets fitted, its Historic Technical Passport, and is race ready. Superbly prepared and attractively finished in Cream and Blue, this fabulous Lola T212 is well known in historic circles and naturally would be made very welcome at the world's most prestigious sports car events.

2010 Chevron B8 #CH-DBE-100

2010 Chevron B8 #CH-DBE-100

Lot # 120 (Sale Order: 20 of 24)

The hugely-successful Chevron B8 first appeared in 1968, usually with BMW 2-litre engines but also with the Ford FVA, FVC and occasionally the Lotus-Climax. It was homologated into FIA Group 4 Sports Cars from 1 March 1968 on the basis that 50 were built (reduced to 25 in 1969). To help Chevron Cars achieve the required number (on paper), every rebuild was listed as a new car - a habit that would continue into the B16, B19 and even the B21 and, no doubt, was a practice common to other builders of limited production racing cars. In the end, 44 of the original cars were completed.Often described as one of the greatest racing cars of all time, the B8 was fast, forgiving and delightful. In common with the Lotus Elan and the BMW E30 M3, it was one of those cars that would not punish you for a temporary 'loss of talent' and would quietly sort itself out whilst you were considering 'Plan B'. As now, it was capable of humiliating the top GTs in period at short circuits like Crystal Palace or Brands Indy where dicing with GT40s was a regular occurrence.Offered here is a "Continuation" Chevron B8 completed in 2010 by Vin Malkie of Chevron Racing Ltd. and powered by a new BMW M10, built and supplied by L.H.Owen. The gearbox is a Hewland FT200 supplied new in 2010 and in total it has only covered eight hundred race miles, competing most recently at Spa in 2014. The car has current FIA/HTP papers, signed off in 2014, endorsing its conformity to the original specification. It's in race ready condition having been prepared by Crossle Racing cars with all the safety items in date, and there are four spare wheels with new wet tyres.This beautiful little Chevron B8 looks fabulous in Banana Yellow and is nicely detailed throughout. It would be equally at home at Sprints or a Hillclimb but is undoubtedly the most cost effective route into Historic GT racing around the UK, or is a passport into the world's finest events. Either way, they are competitive cars and the B8's predictability and excellent manners can turn even an average driver into a winner.

1985 Toyota Supra Group A Touring Car (ex Barry Sheene)

1985 Toyota Supra Group A Touring Car (ex Barry Sheene)

Lot # 121 (Sale Order: 21 of 24)

This is a very rare ex-Works 'Group A' Toyota Supra and is chassis number 00056255, which was raced by the late, great ex-Motorcycle World Champion, Barry Sheene, in period. It features a 2759cc, straight 6, DOHC 'Group A' Toyota engine and was raced by Barry in the 1985 BTCC, known then as the Trimoco RAC British Saloon Car Championship.Two years prior in 1983, Toyota UK had first entered a Supra in the BTCC, prepared by Hughes of Beaconsfield and driven by the legendary Win Percy. Their early successes included 6th at Silverstone GP support and 3rd at Donington Park. Win carried on as the official Toyota works driver as the car was developed for a second season in 1984, which resulted in a pole position and win at Brands Hatch, and a pole and second position at Donington Park.By 1985, the future champion and future star of Group C and Le Mans, Win Percy, was moving on from Toyota. However, Hughes of Beaconsfield were still running the car for Toyota UK with Gordon Mayers still as Team Manager. At the same time, Barry Sheene was retiring from professional motorcycle Grand Prix racing and won the hotly contested Toyota works drive, following outings in the BTCC with the smaller Corolla and also following a specific test at Goodwood where he was just 0.4secs slower than Win.A fine fifth place at the opening Silverstone round was a good start, then a DNF at Oulton was followed by an impressive 3rd place at Thruxton. However, following Donington Park the next round, also at Thruxton, was to be eventful. A first lap six-car crash left the car badly damaged and it had to be hastily re-shelled for the next round at Silverstone only two weeks later where it impressively achieved 3rd place overall in the hands of Sheene. Chassis number 0056255 is this re-shelled car driven by Barry for the remainder of the season, regularly achieving top six results.Vehicle registration records show chassis number 0056255 was finally sold on 1st February 1987 by Toyota GB Ltd to Diamond Motorsport and it still carries a current SORN V5. Since 2012 a thorough restoration by our vendor has included major overhauls of the suspension, braking system, clutch, and fuel system. It is currently fitted with an original casing, close ratio, 5-speed 'dogbox' and a 204bhp engine using DTA mapped injection which has been dyno'd by renowned engine builder, Ric Wood. The car has been validated by Gordon Mayers who was Team Manager in period. Last year the car was invited to the 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed as part of the Barry Sheene Tribute. Film footage of the car being driven on the hill each day is available on the Goodwood website at:https://www.goodwood.com/grrc/event-coverage/festival-of-speed/2016/7/fos-2016-full-day-videos The times in the footage are at: Friday - 2:29:04 and 6:39:49Saturday - 52:50 and 4:40:37Sunday - 2:54:33 and 6:07:10Included with this Lot is a wide range of used and new spares including differentials, strut inserts, suspension springs, suspension arms, subframe, manual steering rack, driveshafts, propshaft, brake discs, clutch plates, an assembled bottom end, head castings, race cams, Group A airbox, and various engine parts. Today it represents a very rare opportunity to own an iconic Group A Touring car with exceptional provenance and a significant motorsport background.

1971 Ford Capri Works Replica

1971 Ford Capri Works Replica

Lot # 122 (Sale Order: 22 of 24)

The Ford Capri was a dominant force in saloon car racing during the early 70s, driven by legends such as Gordon Spice, Stuart Graham and Brian (Yogi) Muir. Easily adapted and set up for racing, it was a popular choice for the professional and club driver alike.This left-hand drive 1971 Ford Capri was built in Cologne, Germany and sold new to the USA. It spent some time as a road-car and was later converted to a national oval racer. In 2011, the vehicle was imported to the UK and purchased by our vendor as a rolling shell in September 2012. The shell was found in remarkably rust-free condition and he set about a painstaking 5-year restoration.As a life-long Capri racer and enthusiast, the vendor's idea was to accurately recreate one of the three Capris that raced at the Le Mans 24 hours in 1972. Specifically, Number 52, the Dieter Glemsar, Alex Soler-Roig car that finished 11th overall. The restoration was managed by our vendor using many Ford specialists and was finished by Tickover Classic Ford in Dartford. The finished article is a joy to behold and must be seen to be appreciated. The bodywork, paintwork and livery have been completed to a high standard and significant time has been spent ensuring period details are all present and correct, such as badges, trim and chrome.The specification is as follows: John Toovey 2.9 Cologne V6 race engine, producing 255 BHP, downdraught Weber Carburettor, race clutch, alloy bell housing, 52 inch Atlas axle fitted with Quaife semi-floating half shafts, rear disk brakes, new German ZF limited slip differential, 3.6 ratio (Gartrac built), adjustable top mounts, Gaz coil over front struts, and disc brakes at the rear. Additional features include solid-mounted rear race leaf springs, Koni shock absorbers at the rear, Gaz coil over shock absorbers at the rear (Watts Linkage if wanted to be fitted at a later date), race radiator, Image bolt-on BBS style wheels, period FIA Recaro seats, period Britax belts, and an FIA-spec roll cage. A photographic album documents the entire build and is included in the sale.This Capri is now ready for use and would make an ideal circuit or road-rally companion in the right hands. It can be UK registered for road-rally use or if the new owner were to obtain FIA papers, it would be eligible for some of the world's biggest circuit events. Equally, it would make a superb museum piece. The vendor informs us that: "the car is on the button and requires very little in order to race... it also sounds awesome!"We welcome pre-sale inspections and encourage prospective bidders to contact the office for further information. This faithful homage of the iconic Works Ford Capris would be a welcome addition to any collection.

1964 Crosslé 7S C7/S64/18

1964 Crosslé 7S C7/S64/18

Lot # 123 (Sale Order: 23 of 24)

This is a rare opportunity to acquire one of Dr John Crosslé MBE's earliest and most celebrated sports racing cars during the 60th anniversary year of the company he founded.Developed from the earlier 5S sports racer, the 7S had revised suspension geometry, wider magnesium wheels and Girling aluminium brake calipers. As noted in Rosemary Crosslé's hand-written order book, C7/S64/18 was completed in December 1964 with a Cosworth-Ford Twin Cam 1600 and Hewland 5-speed gearbox. Three more 7S' were built during 1965. The exploits of this car and its first owner Mervyn Wingfield, 10th Viscount Powerscourt, are recounted in 'Hidden Glory, The Story of the Crosslé Car Company' and several French books. Wingfield and teammate Jim Cooney were the first Crosslé drivers to compete in continental Europe against top drivers and constructors of the day. Cooney's car, C7/S65/25, was driven by road and ferry from the factory in Northern Ireland to its first race at Solitude near Stuttgart, where the pair finished 6th and 9th on 18 July 1965. At the Coupes de Paris on 19 September 1965 at the Autodrome de Linas-Monthléry, Wingfield set the fastest lap and finished second to Robert Huber in a field that included Lotus 23, Elva BMW, Porsche 904 and Ferrari GTO. Photographs in 'Les Instantés de Monthléry, 1963-1970' include the Viscount in his road-taxed 7S pre-race, while wonderful race film appears at www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvyFJS5ChxE.C7/S64/18 was restored in 2014 at the same factory where Crosslé built this chassis fifty years before. Bodywork and many parts were renewed, non-period modifications removed and a new FIA HTP obtained, valid from November 2014.A new Twin-Cam 1600 was supplied by George Wadsworth of Racing Fabrications and used only for a handful of track days (under 4 running hours). Detailed invoices for the engine and full details of the Crosslé restoration work are part of a comprehensive documentation package, which includes 'carte grise' road registration and other documents from recent decades in French ownership.Currently fitted with 'Mag 8' split rim alloy wheels and Dunlop historic tyres, the car will be sold along with the cast alloy wheels pictured here and additional bodywork. The Crosslé factory can supply every part for the 7S to original specifications, often from stock, along with technical and historical support from unique factory archives.Smartly finished in a distinctive 'Smalt Blue', C7/S64/18 is in excellent condition and ready to race. The Guards Trophy with HSCC is an obvious option, where younger sister C7/S65/25 has taken class wins at the Oulton Park Gold Cup and other events.In 1966, five Crosslé 7S and 9S sports cars entered the Lavant Cup at Goodwood, and C7/S65/25 raced in the Madgwick Cup at the 2016 Goodwood Revival.This car has a rich and colourful history, unassailable provenance, and an ongoing association with the Crosslé factory since 1964. It is a rare and distinctive alternative to ubiquitous English products, with period results that underline its potential in historic racing today.

1963 Lotus Elan SI GTS (FIA Appendix K)

1963 Lotus Elan SI GTS (FIA Appendix K)

Lot # 124 (Sale Order: 24 of 24)

According to Lotus Archives, Elan S1, Chassis Number 26/0308, left Lotus Cars on 9/12/1963 and was shipped to the Ecurie Shirlee Distribution Corp. in Manhattan Beach, California. Run by the legendary character and racer, Bob Challman, Ecurie Shirlee were Lotus dealers and distributors for many years and played a major part in the success of Lotus on the West Coast. We have no further information about the Elan's history for the next few years, but imagine that a smart little British sports car in Southern California in the Sixties would have enjoyed an interesting life.We move forward to late 2009 when 26/0308 returned to the UK and was registered on 11/11/2009. It was now the property of Paul Tooms and formed part of his plans to compete in UK motorsport and the HSCC-Historic Road Sports Championship in particular. The car was entrusted to Witchampton Garage in Wimborne to be race prepared. There are box files of information regarding the car's initial build and ongoing development, obviously far too much to list here, but details of all this will be available from our Documents Office at the time of the sale, or prior to that by contacting Silverstone Auctions.Over the next four years, 26/0308 (now BPR 559A) was campaigned with unparalleled success in HSCC -Historic Road Sports-Class 'C'. In the hands of Paul Tooms it won this championship outright in 2011 and 2012 before the car was sold to Roger Waite who was also a talented 'pedaler' winning outright at Thruxton, Silverstone International, and Silverstone Finals during 2013, and winning the HRS Class 'C' in 2015.At the end of 2015, the decision was taken to sell BPR but not before all the paperwork had been brought up to date. The FIA-Historic Technical Passport was renewed (FIA Class-GTS10) and is valid until the end of 2025, and the car has a current HSCC Identity Form for 'Period F- Class C'.Now the property of Ginetta racer, Patrick Ward-Booth, BPR did not run in 2016 but was subject to a total rebuild and, once again, the history file contains all the details, but to summarise;All-steel Smirthwaite engine- built and maintained by John Smirthwaite-Less than three hours runningRecently rebuilt Gearbox by Competition TransmissionsBrand new genuine Lotus Chassis (£1,595)Body completely restored and resprayedThe Elan is accompanied by the aforementioned Passports, its V5, acres of invoices, correspondence with Lotus and the DVLA, and, most importantly, lots of detailed running instructions, set-up sheets, operating instructions, lap times etc. Currently on SORN and the last MOT expired in March 2016.There is an old adage that says that "Motor Racing is not expensive, it's Winning that's expensive" and whilst that's true, winning cars are often the cheapest to run. It's the years of changing components, trying different set-ups, frequently going the wrong way, the occasional corner-removing spin chasing the right balance, and testing, testing, testing, that puts stress-fractures on your credit card. This little Elan is ready to go; open the notes, check the best tyre pressures and likely fuel consumption at Brands, quick spanner-check, torque-up the wheel nuts, jump in, and if you are a reasonably quick driver (and why would you go motor racing if you didn't believe that was the case), stick it on the front row.We, at Silverstone Auctions, look forward to being there on that day.
