This is a fully developed FIA race car which has achieved excellent results in high-profile races in the hands of John Davison, the most recent of which was 2nd in class in the Masters Touring Car race at the Silverstone Classic. Two years of development by Ricketts Racing assisted by Ed Morris and Eugene O’Brien, this is a fully set-up, ready-to-win, race car with four sets of wheels and a spares package available. Built as a left hand drive to give extra room in the footwell, and with the suspension optimised by Nigel Rees, this Lotus Cortina has the absolute best of everything and is immaculate.
The Car was completely rebuilt over last winter and is in perfect race trim, the Lotus twin cam engine is a development version from George Wadsworth and has only done dyno and 2 hours total racing. This is a genuine turn-key opportunity to go racing and win in a proven car with good history. Full FIA papers and set-up information available, as would be race support if required. Everything is in-date, or new, including the paint. We are only selling this car to concentrate on our successful team of 2 x Lotus Elans and our Pre-63 GT Elite for next season, plus another secret Lotus project.
The car will be advertised elsewhere for £75,000 to allow for the haggle-merchants. Non negotiable price to Historic Lotus Club racing member will be £65,000. Please contact Mike Loughlin at Ricketts Racing. Wheathampstead. 07714 246270.
