Mansell’s Crossle to join Fford display
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.
