Reflecting on this year's Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show theme 'Built to Last', Motor Sport Magazine's stand is set to impress with their focus on Britain’s contribution to competitive longevity.
The display features several fascinating cars – including the oldest surviving racing Bentley. Built in 1921, and with Brooklands racing pedigree, this 3 litre car has been developed as a recreation of one of the 1922 Tourist Trophy team cars, and most recently appeared in an episode of the TV show, Downton Abbey.
The other star exhibit is an Aston Martin DB2, which was entered for the 1950 Le Mans 24 Hours… but did not start after driver Jack Fairman suffered an accident on the public road while making his way to the event. Racing for most of its life, chalking up several notable victories in sprints and time trials, it scored yet another memorable success earlier this year when Aston Martin driver Darren Turner, won the Fordwater Cup at the Goodwood Revival Meeting.
Visit the Motor Sport stand (1-430) as they take great pride in uncovering these legendary classics at the show.
