Bought new by Doug Shierson, this was the B24 entrusted to Peter Gethin during the 1973 season. It was used by Gethin to score his historic win in the Race of Champions. At the end of the season, it was sold to the United States, where it was raced for many more seasons. Fitted with a full-width body, the B24 served well into the 1980s as a single-seater Can-Am racer. It was eventually restored to its original configuration. The current owner acquired the car in 2011 and extensively raced it until the B24 was heavily damaged by a fire in his workshop. Fortunately, just enough survived of the car to have it completely restored by Chevron Racing. The historic Chevron was back on the track late in 2013 and in 2014, it was demonstrated at the Goodwood Festival of Speed by the owner and Peter Gethin's son Nicholas.
