Rare Mclaren set for Cas­tle Combe

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

The Mclaren M10B used by Peter Gethin to win one of only two For­mula 5000 races at Cas­tle Combe will re­turn to the Wilt­shire track on Satur­day to be demon­strated dur­ing the Au­tumn Clas­sic.

In May 1970, Gethin took the Sid Tay­lor-en­tered car to vic­tory and smashed the out­right cir­cuit record by nearly eight sec­onds.

Matthew Wurr will drive the same car this week­end at the Wilt­shire track on be­half of cur­rent owner Martin Long­more.

The pa­rade will also fea­ture a Fer­rari 250 GTO and 250 MM from Nick Ma­son’s sta­ble, while event spon­sor Ju­lian Bron­son will run his front-en­gined Scarab Grand Prix car.
