Description

Gelscoe Motorsport build GT40s to the original factory specifications from the original drawings from which the cars were fabricated and therefore indistinguishable from the originals. As such they are accepted by the FIA and qualify for HTP papers.

Chassis number GEL 009 is one of 10 Mk1's produced to date, and was completed in February 2016. Full build photos are available. It was built to full Mk1 1965 specification and has recent FIA papers as a Period F (pre 66) car. It is fitted with a superb 4.7 litre 289 cu engine by Tim Adams producing 470 bhp (dyno sheet available).

This stunning example was prepared and run by Gelscoe throughout the 2016 season, achieving the following results:

Goodwood Members' Meeting March 2016

DNF owing to throttle linkage

Donington Masters 3 hours May 2016

1st overall

Silverstone Classic Masters July 2016

3rd in Class behind a Lola T70 spider and McLaren

Spa Masters September 2016

4th in class behind the Lolas and McLarens

Jarama Masters 3 hours October 2016

1st overall

Gelscoe have maintained a detailed log of the car's performance. It has never been over-revved or sustained any body/chassis damage. They have subsequently fully prepared it for the new season with an engine inspection and test, new discs, tyres, pads, bearings, rebuilt calipers and seals.

Complete with spare wheels including 6"magnesium wheels and tyres for 3 or 6 hour races and spare 8" and 10"magnesium rims for pre 66 sports car races.

This is a beautifully prepared, fast and reliable GT40 which is genuinely completely ready for use in the coming season. A proven winner in the right hands.
