Chevron cars had burst onto the GT racing scene in 1966 with a dream debut for its B3, the very first GT car produced by the talented Derek Bennett, winning at Oulton Park in its maiden race. To racing driver John Lepp, observer at the Chevron's first track test at the same venue, this came as no surprise having already seen the GT put in a lap no less than six seconds under the GT record.
Its closely resembling successor, the Chevron B8 - more often than not powered by BMW's two liter, overhead camshaft, four cylinder engine - went onto dominate national GT racing and enjoy much success in Europe from 1968 onwards. The B8 used a space frame chassis with all independent wishbone/coil spring suspension, while its svelte and curvaceous fiberglass bodywork 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 homologated for the international Group 4 class, and it too proved highly successful: the car made its race debut at Cadwell Park on March 3rd 1968 and just over three weeks later, an example, driven by John Silverstone, took an outright win in the GT race at Silverstone; John Lepp then went on to take overall honours in the 1969 RAC Sports Car Championship. By the time production ceased in 1970, Chevron had only built 44 B8 models of which 34 with the BMW 2.0 litre engine. Whichever power unit was fitted, the B8 remained a superbly effective racing car and highly competitive in international racing, thanks to its combination of superb agility and outright speed. The situation is no different today in historic racing where the Chevron B8 and Bolton's best is a regular podium finisher in sports and GT car events .
We are proud to offer for sale the ex-John Lepp, 1969 RAC National championship winning Chevron B8. CH-DBE-75 was built by Chevron and supplied to John Lepp in 1969. Although the build record does not show exactly when it was supplied it was certainly one of the earliest 1969 cars and it certainly was the car used by Lepp throughout 1969.
CH-DBE-75 benefits from a documented, continuous ownership history (see below) and has undergone a full, no-expense-spared restoration in 2010 by renown race preparer Simon Hadfield. Its BMW engine was rebuild by specialist Lester Owen. After its restoration and race-preparation, this magnificant B8 has hardly been used and therefore is still in fresh and race-ready condition. It comes with an extensive spares package (a 2nd fresh, Lester Owen BMW engine is also available by seperate negotiation) and has current FIA HTP papers.
This pedigree Chevron B8 is truly one of the best examples and is eligible for all historic race events such as LeMans Classic, Masters WSM, CER, etc. where it will continue to be a competitive and very welcomed entry.More...

This is an opportunity to acquire a well documented and historically significant Championship winning Lola from the great era of the early 70’s Sportscar Championship, which it dominated in period. With 2.0 Sportscars rapidly rising in popularity amongst collectors wishing to compete at the front end of historic racing events, such as The Classic Endurance Racing Series, Le Mans Classic, HSCC Martini Trophy and V de V European endurance series HU55 has the potential to return as a front-running and highly desirable historic Sportscar.
