Chassis: CRP1-77-002
Built following David Purley's monumental accident in the practice of the 1977 British Grand Prix at Silverstone with the first Lec, this car was intended to encourage a speedy recovery. Very badly injured, David Purley was ultimately not ready to drive the car until August of 1979, when it was entered in the Brands Hatch round of the Aurora AFX Championship. Purley retired from the race but a fortnight later finished 10th at Thruxton. This was the final contemporary outing of the car and it was subsequently displayed at the Donnington Grand Prix Collection museum alongside the wreck of the first chassis. On behalf of the new owners, it has now been completely restored to running order by WDK Motorsports. Its first outing came at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed, where Joe Twyman set the sixth fastest time. At the 2015 Festival of Speed both cars were run together in public for the first time.
