Mansell’s Crossle to join Fford dis­play

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

A re­cre­ation of the Crossle 32F raced by Nigel Mansell in 1977 will join the HSCC dis­play of cars from five decades of For­mula Ford at Au­tosport In­ter­na­tional at the NEC (12-15 Jan­uary).

In 2017 the Crossle Car Com­pany will mark 60 years since John Crossle built his MKI.

Crossle won the in­au­gu­ral Euro­pean FF1600 Cham­pi­onship in 1969 with its 16F, and is the last orig­i­nal For­mula Ford con­struc­tor still op­er­at­ing.

Nigel Mansell drove a 32F to win the Sil­ver­stone-based Brush Fusegear Cham­pi­onship in 1977 and the car on show will be fin­ished in Mansell’s pe­riod liv­ery.
