Motor Sport News - - Historics -

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.
