Brands Hatch in brief

The Ferrari 312B2 that Jacky Ickx used to win the 1972 German GP returned to racing in May, driven by James Hanson in the Grand Prix Masters event at Brands Hatch. Not raced since the ’70s, the Ferrari has been completely rebuilt.

Lola T70 Spyder, chassis 11, has returned to racing in Europe in Sports Racing Masters events. Owned by Leo Voyazides, the car is thought to have spent 40 years in a barn after being originally bought by Carl Haas.

The Grand Prix Masters event marked the return to Europe of the McLaren M23 that Denis Hulme used to win the 1973 Swedish GP. The car is now raced by owner Phil Mauger.
