There is no less than one month to go before the new historic racing season will kick off with the Mugello Classic. To already get you in the mood, we have taken a closer look at three relatively modern historic racing cars that we saw in action in 2021. First up is this TVR Tuscan T400R, which made its historic racing debut during the 2021 season finale at Estoril. The fourth of seven examples built, this particular example is a veteran of two 24 Hours of Le Mans races. It was acquired by the current owner in bits but he is fortunately the proprietor of marque specialist Str8Six, so chassis '1104' has been beautifully restored to its 2003 configuration.
Competing in the Endurance Racing Legends race at Le Mans was this Lamborghini Murciélago LP670 R-SV. Completed in 2010, it was the 16th and final Murciélago converted to race in the GT1 category. It was sold new to the Japanese Lamborghini Owners Club and raced at Le Mans in 2010. It was subsequently converted to road use while still in Japan but chassis LA01066 is now back to its full racing configuration.
A winner at the Le Mans race last year was this Riley & Scott Mk III C. One of five built, it was originally powered by an Elan-prepared V8 and raced at Daytona and Le Mans in period. Now in British hands, chassis 01-004 has already proven to be very fast.
