Description

Built by Crossl in Northern Ireland in 2013 for Nick Ledger and raced for three seasonsAcontinuation car built in the same factory as the original and successful 1960's race carsAcquired in 2016 and used for occasional track days. Meticulously maintained sinceDunnell-prepared, 2-litre Ford Zetec producing 220bhp,Hewland Mk 9 gearbox and LSDTubular steel spaceframe (as the original 1966 design) incorporating anintegralroll hoopSix-section bodywork inlightweight self-coloured fibreglass. Comprehensive spares packageThe 9S was regarded by many in the sixties as one of the most rewarding race cars to drive as well as one of the prettiest cars of its era a claim that can justifiably still be made today. In 2005, when the FIA decided to permit the original manufactures of racing cars to produce continuation models to comply with the new HTP regulations, the opportunity for many historic racers to experience these values once again became a reality.#C9S 66 66 is a late runcarbuilt by Crossl in Hollywood, County Downin 2013 for Nick Ledger and raced successfully for three seasons. The build of this particular car is featured in a really excellent nine-minute video here. See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aK_LYqhNqbAIt was purchased by our vendor in 2016 but he has never raced it, only using it for occasional track days. We understand that the total running time during 2016/2017/2018 is around 16 hours(full details available). The car has been maintained throughout our vendor'sownership by an ex-race mechanic and remainsin excellent condition. It'swell known to the Crossle Race Drivers Club (CRDC) and according to their Chairman, Eammon Ledwidge, "The car is one of the best available and meticulously maintained".Superbly finished in white with a green stripe and graphics, the car is powered by a modern and extremely reliable 2-litre, 220bhp, Ford Zetec engine prepared by Dunnell Engines, giving long-lasting service between rebuilds. It's supplied withtwo sets of Minilite wheels,three sets of tyres (slicks, intermediates and wets) and a fitted car cover. It has a long-range tank but currently, this has been replaced by a passenger seat with a new Schroth harness fitted in 2017for Track Days.The full technical spec of the 9S can be found herehttps://crossle.co.uk/9SSportscar.htmlWith the appealing classic shape of sports racers designed in pre-downforce days combined with safe modern mechanicals and the support of a particularly friendly Drivers Club, this seems to tick, pretty well, all the boxes.
