We have the pleasure to offer this 1973 “Team Archambeaud” Lola T292 (HU54) for sale.
This car benefits from a continuous history with only 5 owners from new. It is exceptionally well documented as the current, long term French owner is passionate about his car’s history and was a friend of team founder/owner Paul Henri Archambeaud.
The history file contains the invoice from Lola, purchase document of the engine from Schnitzer, customs and various other documents, race clippings and many in-period pictures including a “1973 Archambeaud-team” movie; all of which will go with the car to its new owner.
HU54 has been completely restored and has been very well taken care of since by Eric Wassermann, renown engine specialist and preparer. The BMW (M12/7) 2.0 liter engine has been refreshed in July 2014 with only 2 hours on it. The fuel cell is valid until March 2015. This nimble and quick Lola T292 has been a regular sight on the historic racing scene as it participated in CER from 2004 up to 2010 and LeMans Classic in 2006, 2008 and 2010 where it always did very well.
This car is in excellent condition throughout and ready to race. It comes with 2008 FIA HTP papers and a good spares package which includes spare bodywork, wheel sets, gear-ratio’s and running spares.
Its new owner will have the pleasure to enter and enjoy this iconic “team Archambeaud” 2 liter Lola prototype in all the historic races for which it is eligible around the world.More...
We are proud to offer this Nissan Group C car, built on chassis R90C-07, which is the only example of the type R93CK and represents the final development of the Nissan R89/90C line of which this car is the last of. Lola built 13 chassis for Nissan over two years of competition starting with six T89/10 chassis in 1989 built to R89C spec.
For 1990, seven T90/10 chassis were built, six of them to R90CK spec, with one tub, R90C-07 being set aside unbuilt as a spare. The very last of the 13 Lola tubs, it was built up in December 1990 by Nova Engineering of Japan to R90CK spec. Painted yellow with From-A sponsorship, R90C-07 raced throughout 1991 in the Japanese domestic series in the hands of A.Nakaya and Volkert Weidler who finished second first time out in the Fuji 500 Kms. They then finished second twice again that year, in the Fuji 1000 Kms and the Sugo 500 Kms. R90C-07's only race appearance outside Japan was in 1992 at the Daytona 24 Hours where Weidler, Mauro Martini and Jeff Krosnoff brought the car home 8th. It was the only time R90C-07 raced that year as Nova switched to their spare car, chassis R90C-06 on loan from Nissan, for the remainder of the '92 season and which was returned them at the end of the year.
In 1993 the car was uprated to R93CK spec, the only one of the thirteen chassis to be built or uprated to this spec. It raced once in 1993, finishing 2nd in the Suzuka 1000 Kms with Mauro Martini,and young up and coming German hotshot Heinz-Harald Frentzen. This would be the only race appearance for the type R93CK, for by then Group C racing was basically dead with the category collapsing after the cancellation of the World Sportscar Championship at the end of 1992. Apart from Japan, and Le Mans with its restricted boost and fuel allowance, there really was nowhere to race a Group C sports racing car.
After it was retired from active competition, R90C-07 was placed in dry storage until bought by McLaren/Trojan registrar and Supersports organiser Charlie Agg via Mike Gue of Essex Racing. Charlie raced the car in the new Group C Historic series both in Europe, and in the USA where Charlie took part in the HSR Endurance events at Daytona and Sebring in 2002, and at the Le Mans Legends in 2004. Charlie sold R90C-07 to George Purdie in 2008 whose son Andy took part in the Goodwood Festival of Speed that year and raced the car in historics until 2010 when the car sold to its current owner, who has raced the car sucessfully in Group C historics since then including a return to Le Mans for the legends event in 2012.
This Nissan R90CK is one of the few cars which - in the right hands - can beat the Sauber Mercedes. The car is well documented and is fully on-the-button with everything being fresh and current. It needs nothing and comes with an enormous spares package comprised of moulds, bodywork, several engines, etc..Enough to run the car without the need to buy anything for a good number of years !
This is a rare opportunity to buy one of the 3 Nissan R90's in private hands and to be at the front in the increasingly popular Group C racing scene.More...
Manufactured in 1963, this is not an ordinary Cortina but a genuine, factory supported Lotus Cortina Mk1 series 1 “S-frame” car to the correct specification.
Driven by Arthur Blank as a “Ford Switzerland” entry, it had factory support from Lotus which continued when it was run by the Scuderia Filipinetti team. It has further kudos in being the 1965 Swiss Touring car Champion.
This well documented Cortina with continuous ownership is ready to be enjoyed on the track or road (UK registered). After 45 years living in Switzerland, it was brought to the UK in 2008 after which more than GBP 40,000 has been spent on it. It was then used sparingly with 2 races in UK and the Tour Auto rally in 2010 for which new seats were fitted. The engine is freshly rebuild by Field Motorsport and has less than 1 hour running (dyno-tested at 160 bhp @ 6500 rpm and strong torque of 145lbs). New calipers, fire system and seat belts.
Having 2010 FIA HTP papers and a UK road registration, this Lotus Cortina with exceptional works pedigree is ready to give its new owner great fun on the race track or on the road !More...

This is one of the best prepared Shelby Mustang GT350 cars and the 2007 Spa 6hr overall winner ! Benefitting from long-term ownership, it was build-up from a bare 1966 Shelby Mustang rolling shell with all the best equipment and with an obsession to keep the weight as close as possible to its homologation weight of 1100kg. It has a fresh 400+ bhp 289 engine and a rebuild gearbox. New wiring loom and magnesium wheels.
The car is in excellent condition throughout. As it has sat unused since 2011, it will need nothing more than a go-through, a fluids re-fresh together with a new seat, fire extinguisher and fuell cell. SFM6S1695 comes with 2005 FIA HTP papers and 8 spare wheels. A spare engine can also be bought seperately.
This Mustang is ready to shine again on the historic racing scene where it will continue to be a frunt runner !More...
