Her­metite Capri to race at Sil­ver­stone Clas­sic

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

A recreation of the fa­mous Her­metite-liv­er­ied Group 1 Ford Capri will com­pete this sea­son in the hands of pe­riod driver Hol­man (Les) Black­burn.

Black­burn and Mike Crab­tree raced the orig­i­nal Her­metite Team car in Bri­tain and Europe in the 1970s.

David Weir worked with the squad at the time and has been re­spon­si­ble for the recreation, which ap­peared in pub­lic for the first time at a Good­wood test ear­lier this month.

Weir sourced a Capri Mark 2 and Ric Wood has pre­pared it to 1974/1975 spec­i­fi­ca­tion, with help from some of the orig­i­nal team.

Weir and Black­burn will share the Capri at the Sil­ver­stone Clas­sic and two his­toric Spa meet­ings.
