We were saddened to hear of the passing of Gordon Spice last week. He was a hugely successful driver, winning the Spa 24 Hours outright in a Ford Capri and then turned to building his own Group C cars. In addition to fielding and driving the Spice Group C machines himself, he also sold the car to customers. Chief among them was Chamberlain Engineering, who campaigned this Spice SE89C with great success. It was the first example built ahead of the 1989 season and won eight rounds of the British C2 Championship that year. It was also raced at Le Mans twice and also clinched the FIA Cup in 1992. Now restored to its 1991 Le Mans livery, chassis 001 has returned to the track in recent year.
British specialist manufacturer Caterham have introduced the first new model since it was acquired by a Japanese conglomerate. Dubbed the Seven 170, it is the lightest and smallest Caterham Seven yet. The 170 is a reference to the hp per ton the new Seven boasts. This is the result of a combination of a turbocharged 660cc Suzuki engine and a weight of just 440 kg. Available as a kit or a complete car, the Seven 170 is also available in the 'S' stripped back or 'R' track focused versions.
Four leading British companies operating in the automotive field have used the period in lockdown to create this all-electric Aura Concept. Revealed yesterday, the compact sports car serves as a proof of concept and a demonstrator of what the four companies are capable of.
