For­mer works Chevron will com­pete in His­toric F3 with Wag­gitt

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

John Wag­gitt will race what is thought to be an ex-works Chevron B15 in the His­toric F3 Cham­pi­onship this sea­son.

The 1969 B15 is be­lieved to be the ex-reine Wisell car and one of only two cars sup­plied in red when new.

The car that French­man Rene Ligonnet has owned since new is the other red car and Wag­gitt bor­rowed that ma­chine to help with the re­build.

“The car came from France where it ran with a Re­nault en­gine in the 1980s. The in­for­ma­tion we’ve got points to it be­ing the Wisell car,” said York­shire­man Wag­gitt, a for­mer hill­climber. It has been re­built in Wisell’s pe­riod liv­ery.
