Lola, Porsche and Maserati sports racers that starred at Barcelona ...

During last week's Espiritu de Montjuic there were many familiar machines in action at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. To make things interesting several cars were campaigned that we had not seen on track before. One of the most interesting was this Lola T600 Cosworth that was raced in the Classic Endurance Racing 2 group. Built in 1981, it is one of the first sports racing cars with full ground-effect aerodynamics and as such provided a first glimpse of the new Group C cars that followed the following year. Powered by the Cosworth DFV and later DFL V8, it won two rounds of the sports car championship in 1981. Fully rebuilt over the winter, the T600 is definitely one of the fastest cars eligible in CER2.
In the CER1 race, we were treated to a very special Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 2.8, which was reunited with its original driver Jacques Almeras. Sold new to France, it was driven to the Group 4 French hill-climb championship by Almeras before it was fitted with the 'Mary Stuart' tail with the help of the factory. In this guise the 911 Carrera RSR 2.8 placed twice overall in the Tour de France.
After being owned for over two decades by Dire Straits singer Mark Knopfler, this Maserati 300S made its debut in the hands of the new, Spanish owner. The car has had an interesting history, first in Brazilian and later Australian hands. Beautifully prepared, the 300S was the only Maserati in action during the weekend.
