This is the first of the two Ian Walker Racing Fastback Elans built and the car intended for Le Mans. Following its contemporary racing career, it disappeared off the radar until it was acquired in 1977 by Lotus enthusiast Pail Matty. At the time the unique machine was in pretty tired condition but it was eventually restored to its former glory. In more recent years, the current owner had it restored once more, this time with the help of the late-Ian Walker and his former chief engineer John Pledger. It has since been raced at historic events, highlighted by a victory in the Fordwater Trophy during the 2012 Goodwood Revival.
