One of the most interesting cars to make its debut during this shortened historic motor racing season is the BR Engineering BR01 Nissan. The LMP2 machine's contemporary racing career spanned less than two seasons and it was eligible to compete in the Asian Le Mans Series until the end of the 2019 season. Funded by Russian billionaire banker Boris Rotenberg, it was designed by Paolo Catone of Peugeot 908 fame. While available to customer's it was ultimately raced only by Rotenberg's SMP Racing team during the 2015 and 2016 seasons. Eight BR01s were built and the featured example is one of three that was not used in period and one of five bought by British specialists BBM Sport. They had the car prepared to race in the Aston Martin Masters Endurance Legends series, which saw Jack Dex dominate with the Nissan-engined car at the recent Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort.
Another racer not used when new is this Lola T286. It was the fourth of four chassis built in 1976 and 1977 but the order was cancelled due to a change in regulations. Chassis HU10 did eventually compete in the 1985 Thundersports championship and has competed in historic racing ever since. Ahead of this season, it was restored to its 1985 colours by Equipe Europe and immediately driven to victory at the Dix Mille Tours.
