Description

Chassis 108 is one of approximately fourteen Lister Storms campaigned as racing cars. This example is presented in the configuration it last raced in which is perhaps the latest specification Storm of all. These phenomenal cars were the brainchild of Laurence Pearce who had revived the famed Lister marque in the 1980s. The Storm burst onto the supercar scene in 1993, though due to having a high price tag, just four were ordered. Chassis 108 was originally built as a road car and delivered to its first owner, Hans K Rausing in March 1996.

In 1998 it was converted to racing spec to be used as a works entry in both the 1999 British and FIA GT Championships. In 2000 it raced in the the Spanish GT Championship and in 2005/6 in Brazil's famous Mil Milhas race. In British GT the car wore race number 32 at Snetterton and Brands, then switched to being the number 41 entry (with different drivers) for the Silverstone GP support race. For the FIA GT Championship it wore race number 25 at Monza, Silverstone, Hockenheim, Zolder and Donington. The car was often at the very sharp end of the qualifying sheets, securing multiple pole positions, and scored 3 GT2 victories and 2 podiums during its career.

During its life 108 was raced by numerous famous drivers including: Julian Bailey, Jamie Campbell-Walter, Tiff Needell, Bobby Verdon-Roe, Tim Sugden, Andy Wallace, Tony Kanaan, Raul Boesel, Pedro Lamy, plus William Hewland, Thorkild Thyrring, Carlos Palau, Alberto Castillo, Alcides Dinis, Beto Giorgi, Pedro Gomes, Paul Evans. Eligible for both the Global Endurance Legends and Masters Endurance Legends series, these cars are rare, spectacular, great to drive and have real pedigree.
