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:
- 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.
- 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!
- 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. (Note to Editors: a picture of the bike is
