With historic motorsport restarting slowly, we have had the opportunity to see some cars in action that we had not seen before or not for a while. Among them is this Ford GT40, which competed in a historic race during the recent Grand Prix de l'Age d'Or for the first time in many years. It was raced in period by likes of Chris Amon and Jochen Rindt, and competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966. Chassis GT40P/1017 changed hands recently and is now in French ownership.
Also in action at Dijon in June was this Lotus Elan 26R. The Series 2 machine was delivered new to the United States where it was raced in SCCA events under the Lotus Southwest banner. Until 1998, it had just two owners and the more recent custodians had the Elan beautifully prepared for historic racing.
Of an altogether more newer vintage is this Aston Martin DBR9, which was campaigned last month at the Historic Racing by Peter Auto meeting at the Le Mans Bugatti circuit. It was raced extensively between 2006 and 2008 as can be seen in the 37-shot gallery in a variety of liveries. Its most recent, and only second owner decided to have DBR9/4 painted in the colourscheme used at Le Mans in 2008.
