Andrew, I'm a bit of a stickler for engineering attention to detail and what makes a GT40 appear "correct". In my opinion your car nails it perfectly. Well done!

Andrew, as I said to you years ago, your car will be a bit like "Frankenstein" but let me say Frankenstein never looked as good or sounded as sweet as your little monster. Perfection.....and Its Alive!

Re: P1001

I was a close friend of Bernard White and involved with his team’s antics with 1001 and its Ferrari 250LM and BRM 261/5. Jenkins referred to Innes Ireland towing 1001 on a Don Parker trailer with Bernard’s DB6 back from Zeltweg. We had a memorable dinner in Judenburg the evening before the race with Jenks, Innes and David Hobbs, one of the most hilarious nights I ever experienced. Acquiring 1001 followed the loan of FAV’s silver ‘demo’ car to Bernard. Hard to believe we actually had three of us in the car. Bernard also bought a road version, my memory is failing but I think it passed to Noel Edmonds. 1001 was sold to Sid Taylor, source of other hilarious encounters. I saw your car at the NEC, nice to be reminded of the bodywork on which I leant back in the day!
Frank Catt told me the story of the bodywork whilst I was at his shop. Frank has recently recommissioned my GTD 804AJB which he rebuilt and re-engineered as a racer around 1999. Very satisfying to know my car has a history with Frank, undoubtedly the primary source of all things GT40.

The car now has it's Historic Technical Passport and was invited to attend the Silverstone Classic Media Day on 2nd May. Here's a photograph kindly donated by a friend of the driver, Tony Gallagher.
