Hall of Fame
Classic racers under one roof
For 2015, the Motor Sport Hall of Fame will be on display at the London Classic Car Show with a celebration of the careers of each founding member and the cars that helped define them.
They include the Benetton B193, one of Michael Schumacher’s earliest F1 cars. Ayrton Senna’s first Grand Prix victory will be marked by the actual Lotus 97T he used to take the spoils in Portugal in 1985 (above), while Jackie Stewart will be represented by a Tyrrell 006.
Two Ferrari bygones will be on display: an Alfa Romeo P3 from 1934, and a 1952/53 Ferrari 500, Enzo Ferrari’s first world championship winner.
Two great British cars have been chosen to represent the careers of Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss: the BRM V16 and the actual Vanwall Moss shared with Tony Brooks to win the 1957 British Grand Prix. Completing the display will be a Lotus 25, the first F1 racer built around a complete monocoque chassis, which gave Jim Clark several GP wins in 1962 and his maiden title in ’63.
The London Classic Car Show takes place from January 8-11 at ExCel London.
