An old friend. I saw this ex Works MG Lola battle for the honours at Le Mans in 2002. Whilst ultimately unsuccessful due to poor reliability the car was quick. In the hands of an American privateer with a new reliable engine the car went on to win back to back class victories at Le Mans. But by then MG were no more..

Ronnie Peterson’s 1971 March 711 F1 car. Sponsored by STP, the car was at the show as part of an STP promotional campaign. Sadly its appearance practically coincided with the death at 90 of the man who made STP one of the global motoring brands of the 60’s and 70’s, Andy Granatelli.
