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