    The Machines..........

    Visitors to the International Historic Motorsport Show at Stoneleigh Park on 24-26 February 2006 will have a rare chance to examine such exceptional specimens from the world of racing, rallying and motorcycling as:

  1. The Lotus 49 Formula 1 car used by Jim Clark to win the 1968 South African Grand Prix at Kyalami. It was to be Clark's final Grand Prix - he was on pole position, set the fastest lap, and won the race. The car was never updated to 49B spec and remains exactly as it was at Kyalami. Visit Crash.Net's Autocourse/Rallycourse/Motocourse stand for a close look at this historic racer.
  2. The Richard Burns East African Safari car, loaned to the Show by Prodrive. The car will form the centrepiece of a special stand dedicated to the memory of Burns, the first Englishman to win the World Rally Championship, who died so tragically last year. Other rally cars on show will include the Healey 3000 which Pat Moss used to win the Liege Rally, the ex-works Graham Hill RAC Rally Mini Cooper S - and, of course, the cars in action on the Group B rally stage!
  3. The only Ferrari motorcycle ever built - the Ferrari 900cc four-cylinder dohc motorcycle built by Kay Engineering with full written sanction from the Ferrari company as a tribute to Enzo Ferrari. Five years in the making, this unique one-off engineering masterpiece is totally unused. Engine casings are all cast magnesium, with cam-covers featuring the unmistakable prancing horse symbol cast into the end caps. The bodywork is made entirely of hand-beaten aluminium finished in Ferrari racing red. This machine will be displayed on the Phil Cotton's Motorcycles stand - and offered for sale at a non-negotiable price of 250,000.
