Chassis: B26-74-07
Ready in May of 1974, this was one of several B26s supplied to Roger Hire's Forge Mill Racing, which was the de facto works team. This car was entrusted to noted Chevron proponent John Lepp. At its debut, at the Silverstone Interserie race, it was driven to seventh overall and third in class by Lepp. He continued to race this car throughout the 1974 season, finishing second overall at the Hockenheimring and eventually placing fifth in the European Championship despite missing the opening round. Lepp then placed the car in dry storage and, still bearing its original Domecq Sherry livery, was sold to South African Donald Mercer in 1980. Mercer sold the car back to Lepp in 1989 after a testing accident. Fully repaired, it was then sold to and raced by German Fred Laufer during the mid-1990s. Following a spell in the United States, it returned to British hands in the early 2010s. He raced the car during the 2014 season at several Peter Auto events. Through Belgian dealer RMD, it was sold during the second half of the 2010s to a Swiss historic racer.
