Clas­sic For­mula Fords go on show

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

For­mula Fords raced by Michael Schu­macher, Emer­son Fit­ti­paldi and Jody Scheck­ter will head­line the cat­e­gory’s 50th an­niver­sary dis­play at Autosport In­ter­na­tional at the NEC (Jan­uary 12-15).

The HSCC will show eight iconic cars in­clud­ing a Lo­tus 51, the car that made up the bulk of the grid for the in­au­gu­ral race at Brands Hatch in 1967.

One of the most suc­cess­ful Mer­lyns is the ‘Magic’ Mer­lyn Mk11a first raced by Emer­son Fit­ti­paldi and then by Jody Scheck­ter. The car is now owned by Scheck­ter.

From 1977 is the Royale RP24 raced by the late David Les­lie. From the 1980s is the ex-michael Schu­macher Van Diemen RF88 loaned by Derek Hood of JD Clas­sics.

The new Me­d­ina Sport JL16K will also be loaned by its cre­ator John Loe­bell.
