We are pleased to offer for sale this gorgeous and very quick RHD Lotus Elan S2 which was bought by the current owner in 2000 and was subsequently completely build-up to the latest 26R specification.
Upon completion, the car has been raced very successfully at both the national and international level up to 2012. The owner then switched to racing a 2 litre prototype which is why the Elan is now up for sale.
The engine has been built by John Smirtwait delivering 190 bhp and only has 10 hours of running since its last rebuild. The other specs are as follows:
The car comes with extensive spares which include a spare set of wheels and spare diff. with LSD 4.1-ratio.
Given that this Elan racer sat idle for a few years, the following would need to be done to bring it to race ready condition : go through the car with renewal of fluids and update belts and fire system.
A new, 2015 FIA HTP comes with the car (see 1st page below). Road registration can be easily done by its new owner as old title/registration document exists.
This excellent Elan S2/26R is located in Belgium where it can be inspected subject to appointment.
We are delighted to offer this genuine, factory built Cooper T49 "Monaco" for sale.
Introduced in 1959, the Cooper T49 “Monaco” with its 2-litre Coventry-Climax engine soon found favour with drivers both in the international and club racing scenes. A total of eight factory built cars were constructed with at least six other cars built up independently using un-numbered factory supplied chassis and component kits.
CM/6/59 was the sixth of the eight factory built cars and was delivered new to American car dealer Harry Blanchard of Connecticut. After a succesfull racing career in the USA until 1980 (see the History section below), the car was bought and imported into the UK by Stirling Moss. Stirling sold the car as a restoration project the following year to David Watson who commissioned Hall & Fowler to carry out a full restoration of the car. The restoration was overseen and invoiced through Stirling Moss Ltd. Despite having sold the car, Stirling was given the car to race at the curtain opener for the 1983 Monaco GP.
CM/6/59 spent another 20 years in USA where it was raced in the historic scene until it came back to Europe in 2000 where it has raced until today.
This genuine Cooper Monaco is in outstanding condition and is 100% race-ready. It has been fully sorted, always meticulously prepared by Martin Stretton Racing Ltd and proven to be a competitive entry in all races it has participated in such as Goodwood Revival, Stirling Moss Trophy, Donington Historics, etc..
CM/6/59 benefits from current, 2015 FIA HTP and comes with a fresh, spare gearbox and other good spares.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a genuine, "no stories" factory built Cooper T49 "Monaco" with excellent documentation and in fully sorted, race-ready condition !More...

We have the pleasure to offer for sale the ex-Tony Cicale Chevron B26. While Tony Cicale may not be that well known this side of the Atlantic, he is a legendary race and championship winning engineer held in high regard in the U.S.A..
Derek Bennett, founder of Chevron Cars Ltd. was a brilliant engineer who started to build race cars in the late 50ies in a shop in North England where he quickly developed a name for himself. He could develop a brand new car in a remarkably short time but he rarely found that a fresh design was really necessary. This was certainly the case in the middle of the 1973 season when the latest Chevron B23 was no match for the Lolas and Osellas. So, Bennett decided that a clean sheet design was needed to regain competitiveness. Shortly after he was found testing the brand new Chevron B26.
What set the B26 apart from its predecessors was the aluminium monocoque. Previous Chevron sports racers had used a reinforced spaceframe design that was first used in the B6 of 1967. The new monocoque type chassis of the B26 offered similar rigidity but weighed less. Just as on the earlier cars a separate front subframe was used for ease of maintenance or replacement in case of accident damage. Adapted to the latest low profile tires, the front suspension was carried over from the final evolution of the B23 while the rear suspension was derived from the B25 Formula 2 single seater. In addition, the B26 benefitted from a simple wedge-shaped body and an integrated rear wing.
This B26, chassis B26/74/05, has continuous history from new with just a few, mostly long-term owners. The current owner bought the car in 2008 from the USA and, once imported into France, commissioned a full rebuild of the car which has now been completed. Everything has been gone through and a new zero-miles Richardson Ford BDG has been installed. The owner has now decided to sell the car as, due to a lack of time, he has not had the pleasure to use this beautiful and very fast Chevron B26.
Everything on the car is current (seat belts, fuel cell, etc.) and it is totally race-ready for making its re-appearance on the US historic racing scene. If to be raced in Europe, the car would only need a correct B26 tail and FIA HTP papers.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a no-stories Chevron B26 with excellent provenance and in fresh, race-ready condition !More...
We are pleased to offer this gorgeous Abarth Osella PA1 chassis 08 for sale. The car has continuous history from new and is in excellent condition.
It was bought by the current owner in 2011 who had a complete rebuild done and a new, correct 2.0 Abarth engine fitted (instead of the FVC it had). The nose section was strengthened in honeycomb aluminium to provide additional protection. Despite this extensive work, the car has only been used once at the Barcelona Masters event in 2011 where it qualified on pole but DNF-ed in the race due to a throttle linkage problem. The engine was then rebuild and has zero hours !
As the car has not been used since, it still looks as new ! All it needs to go racing again is a re-commissioning service and updating with belts, fire extinguisher, fuel cell and a new FIA HTP.
The car comes with a spare set of wheels and miscellaneous running spares.
This no-stories Abarth Osella PA1 is simply stunning and will provide its new owner with lots of enjoyment in the many historic race events it is eligible for.

We have the pleasure to offer for sale this rare and exceptional 1967 Lola T70 Mk3 – chassis SL73/112 – which has been with its current owner for 20 years !
Only 15 Mk3 coupes were built in-period and of these only about 6 are top notch and without any stories. SL73/112 is one of these 6 and benefits from outstanding European and African in-period racing history (see below). In addition, this “Gullwing T70” has continuous ownership from new, originally being referred to as the “Epstein/Hawkins T70” after their first owners and racing drivers.
SL73/112 has spent the first 27 years of its life in England after which it has resided in France for the last 20+ years. Its current and long-term owner has always maintained this car with no expense spared while he raced it on the European historic racing scene where it has never been badly damaged and remains highly original.
The car has a fresh (only 1.5 hours) 5.9 liter small block chevy engine with rare side-draft 55” Weber carburetors and a new, fresh Hewland LG-600 gearbox. SL73/112 is sold in race-ready condition with 2010 FIA HTP papers (new, current HTP papers will also come with the car) and the following spares : one set of wheels plus another front and rear wheel, long and short gear-ratios and a very efficient exhaust silencer system.
