Re: What chassis number is this car?

So It sounds like gt-40 replicas are raced at goodwood? either a superformance or Gelscoe as long as they have FIA paperwork. It also sounds like they have let other cars in as well. I suppose its up to the race chair.....................

This info copied from the H&M website today (1/18/2018):

| Holman & Moody Mark II |

"Now with FIA Chassis type approval our new Mark IIs are being sold with
FIA vintage passports for racing in Europe."

That oughta start a new brawl!

Nothing said about Mark Is...

Cheers!

Re: What chassis number is this car?

I always wondered how it was possible to see so many GT40's each year at the Spa6hrs.
Every year, more and more GT40's on the start grid. Thought it where about 14 GT40's at the start of the Spa 6hrs endurance race 2017.
Made me thinking, how many mk1 GT40's realy where build in the sixties.
How many mk2 are build in the sixties.

I Always wondered how it was possible to see the cars back on track after they crashed very bad at the Spa 6hrs race.
I have seen the green GT40 roadster crash so hard it was almost impossible to repair with a twisted chassis and bits of the chassis broken of. Next race event ...it was there again ??

So somebody must have a an infinite stock new genuine parts like chassis and components and even bodyparts, or.... somebody is just re manufacturing them and if so, why not complete cars... There must be some VIN numbers unused from the sixties somewhere Ill guess.

IMO, I don't care as I realy like to see the GT40's race. The more the better.
Best races I saw where those of the small block GT40's against the big block Lola T70's mk3B years ago at the Masters.

Re: What chassis number is this car?

That photo looks like the Springbok/Angola car. If it is then there is A big convoluted story about how they got that car out of the country. People died.
