Dear John,
I would be very happy to see my eleven in your web,

This car is n.248 Le mans model as you can see in the book wrote by Graham Capel. The car has been sold in USA in 1956 and I'm tryng to have some information if the car raced in the past in USA. The car arrived in Italy in 1986 with the hard top and in bad conditions. It seems it have been used in the road.

It have been fully restored in Italy and prepared for vintage races. It won a lot of races in Italy in his class (targa florio, monza, imola)

In Vallelunga it arrived 4th absolute after have obtained the pole position in front at Ferrari and stronger Jaguar E type.

Now I own the car with Denis Cecchinato and we are thinking to start again with racing because the car is very powerful.

The engine is a FWE version with Weber and it has 126 horse power tested on the table.

I send you some other pictures that you can choose for your fantastic website.

Best regards
Roberto Camporese & Denis Cecchinato
