Tyzack un­veils rare Kel­li­son sportscar

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

For­mer BMW racer Richard Tyzack has ac­quired a rare Kel­li­son J4R sports-racing car and gave it a de­but run at Sil­ver­stone last Satur­day.

The US built car dates from the mid-1950s and was the work of for­mer fighter pi­lot Jim Kel­li­son, us­ing Corvette parts in­clud­ing a 4.6-litre Chevro­let en­gine.

It was more re­cently re­built and raced by Al­bert Ot­ten, in­clud­ing at Good­wood, and is thought to be one of only seven such mod­els built. Only one other is likely to still ex­ist.

“It’s a mid-life cri­sis,” said Tyzack of the car, which he will share in the GT and Sports Car Cup with Nick Tay­lor.
