The short-lived Peerless marque will compete at Le Mans this year for the first time since a one-off works entry splashed Its way to an unlikely 16th in the wet 1958 24 Hours.
British pairing Celia Stevens and Ian McDonald have secured an entry for the Le Mans Classic in their Peerless GT Phase 1, a similar car to the near-standard model that was raced in France by Peter Jopp and Percy Crabb. It was the only four-seater car in the race and was driven back to the UK afterwards.
“It’s completely unmodified. It’s got the original TR3A engine in it with a fast road cam, but otherwise it’s had nothing done to it,” said Stevens. “I just cannot believe we’ve actually got there. It’ll cost an arm and a leg, to be honest, but it will be worth it!”
