Marshall Vaux­hall targets Good­wood

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

As­ton Martin racer Tom Alexan­der plans to race what is thought to be the ex-gerry Marshall/peter Brock Vaux­hall Mag­num af­ter buy­ing it for £82,000 at the Good­wood auc­tion.

Alexan­der says that the car is des­tined for his son James, 14, who is cur­rently rac­ing karts.

Alexan­der Sr said: “£82,000 is a bar­gain. It is re­mark­ably cheap for a car with enough his­tory to get into Good­wood when Capris and such­like sell for over £100,000.

“I know it’s a few years away but I’m hop­ing he will drive it in the Gerry Marshall Tro­phy race at Good­wood in the fu­ture.”

Marshall and Brock raced the Bill Bly­den­stein-built Dealer Team Vaux­hall car to sec­ond over­all in the 1977 Spa 24 Hours.
