Centre stage for the displays at Race Retro will be taken by Porsche 956 chassis 001, the Rothmans car piloted by Jacky Ickx and Derek Bell on the model’s debut race at Silverstone in May 1982. The car will showcase the event’s celebration of 30 years of the 956 Group C car and its 962 derivative.
Porsches will also feature prominently on the live rally stage in the grounds of Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire during Saturday and Sunday of the February 24-26 event.
Graham Hill’s BRM P57 will be on display to commemorate the 50th anniversary of BRM’s first world championship title in 1962, while two ex-works racing MGBs will help mark that model’s 50th year. The 1963 Sebring 12-hour car of Christabel Carlisle and the MGB GT later raced at Sebring by Paddy Hopkirk and Andrew Hedges will be on show.
