Rare Lister Costin re­turned to the United King­dom and will race at Mem­bers’ Meet­ing

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

A fa­mous Lister Costin sport­srac­ing car has re­turned from the US and will con­test the Archie Scott Brown Tro­phy at next month’s Good­wood Mem­bers’ Meet­ing with new owner Chris Mil­ner.

“It’s the most orig­i­nal Lister Costin, built in 1959 and first raced by Mike An­thony with an en­gine out of a US Mil­i­tary ve­hi­cle,” said Mil­ner.

An­thony raced at Good­wood in pe­riod and the car was later sold to Mike Pendle­ton.

When owned by Ge­of­frey Marsh in the early 1980s, it was raced by Gerry Mar­shall in the Lloyds and Scot­tish His­toric Cham­pi­onship. More re­cently, it has been raced by Ja­son Min­shaw and Ju­lian Bron­son be­fore be­ing sold to the USA.

“We flew it home on Christ­mas Eve. It’s just awe­some,” said Mil­ner, who had Nigel Green­sall shake the car down at Don­ing­ton Park last week.
