Chassis: CRP1-77-001
Constructed in the after hours at the Lec Refrigeration company, this is the first of two CRP1s built. It was raced at select events during the 1977 season by David Purley, who finished sixth in the Race of Champions and briefly led the Belgian Grand Prix in this car. Its competitive career came to an abrupt end in the practice for the British Grand Prix but it did save David Purley's life. As a testament to its formidable strength, the remains were displayed for many years in the Donnington Grand Prix Collection museum alongside the sister car. In more recent years, it has been acquired by two enthusiasts, who had specialists WDK resurrect it to full running order. At the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed both cars were run together in public for the first time.
