The actual car from that famous round of the British Saloon Car Championship is coming up for auction with a pre-sale estimate of £65-75,000.
You can see that race in the video above, it’s stirring stuff, but what a shame about the last lap!
The car is the 1968 ex-Bill Shaw Racing Camaro, as driven in its debut season of 1970 by former saloon car champion Roy Pierpoint and then subsequently by Martin Thomas, who was the fearless pilot in the big Chev at Crystal Palace in ’71.
The drivers he was up against? Mike Crabtree in the Ford Escort and of course Gerry Marshall in the Vauxhall Viva. We suspect Gerry would heartily approve if this particular Camaro one day made it to the grid of the race named in his honour at Members’ Meeting!
