This GT40 was built up alongside the previous owner’s original GT40 #1009 while 1009 was being restored by renowned GT40 expert Mark Allin at Rare Drive/Precision Auto Restorations in New Hampshire.
It is an absolute tool room copy and has been issued with FIA HTP papers.
Since new the car has been race prepared by Simon Blake at Historic Automobiles and is fitted with a correct Mathwall 289 engine, since rebuilt by ICE, and a correct RBT ZF gearbox. There is a small spares package with the car.
As you can see from the results listed below the car has had a very successful competition history.

2012 leading with 15 mins remaining, gearbox failed
2015 Donington 4 Hours: Winner
2016 Brands Hatch 3 hours: Winner
2012 Le Mans Classic race 1: Winner
