Description

Completed in 2014 by top historic racer John Young, to European FIA specification, class GTS and period F, 1962-1965. John developed the car into a competitive FIA car, running it at the 2016 Members Meeting and Donington the same year. Its 289 Ford V8 engine was initially built by Knight Racing Engines and has since been developed and most recently refreshed in December 2018, with no race miles since. The rest of the car was rebuilt in early 2018 with a view to competing later in the season, only for plans to change. Current HTP with the car, and road registered.
