Ex-al­boreto Tyrrell to make rac­ing come­back

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

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.
