Autotune MD Anthony Taylor recently gave his Chevron B24 F5000 car its first race since its lengthy restoration. Bought from America in terrible condition several years ago, the car has undergone a major rebuild including a completely re-skinned chassis.
The car is believed to be the famous Race of Champions winning car, driven to victory over the F1 cars at Brands Hatch in 1973 by Peter Gethin. The car was later raced in centre seat Can-Am in the USA before being brought back to the UK to be restored to F5000 spec.
Anthony drove the car in the Chevron Anniversary Race at the Oulton Park Gold Cup meeting, despite no time for any testing beforehand the car ran very reliably and is now ready for more testing and development for next season.
