Shaw seeks Guards Trophy success in Elan 26R
Experienced Road Sports racer Peter Shaw will race in the Guards Trophy next season in a Lotus Elan prepared to 26R specification.
Shaw, who already races an Elan in Historic Road Sports and a TVR Tuscan in 70s Road Sports, acquired a 1964 Series 1 road car which had only two previous owners.
Last summer, Shaw entrusted the car to marque expert Iain Daniels for conversion to race trim.
The fresh car made its debut recently at the Oulton Park Gold Cup, when Julian Barter shared it in the two-driver race.
“It had not turned a wheel until it got to Oulton Park,” said Shaw after they took a class victory in the 40-minute race.
