Ex-alboreto Tyrrell to make racing comeback
The ex-michele Alboreto Tyrrell 010/3 will return to racing this season after spending 34 years in the ownership of the Alboreto family.
The car has been in the family home in Italy since it retired from the 1981 Austrian Grand Prix. As well as being raced by Alboreto, it was also driven by Derek Daly and Eddie Cheever.
The Tyrrell has been rebuilt by Colin Bennett’s CGA team and will race later this year in the hands of new owner Mike Cantillon.
Bennett said: “It stayed in the Alboreto home after Michele’s [fatal] testing accident as it didn’t have a particularly high value. But with Loic Deman’s success in the sister car we rebuilt, its value increased and it was sold.”
Cantillon hopes to debut the car at Brands Hatch in May but will also race his Wolf Williams FW05 again this season.
