Motor Sport News - - Historics -

For­mer GT racer Matt Man­der­son raced the unique Fred Davies Spe­cial in the Can-am cel­e­bra­tion races at Sil­ver­stone in the car’s first com­pet­i­tive out­ing for more than 20 years.

Fred Davies was a Bri­tish en­gi­neer who worked in Amer­ica in the 1950s and ’60s for Sadler Rac­ing Cars. He built the Chevro­let V8-pow­ered car on his drive in 1962 and raced it with the SCCA.

The car later came to Europe and was re­stored by Peter Denty but had not been raced since the mid-1980s. It re­tired from the first race.
