The Classic Sale At Silverstone Festival 25th - 27th August 2023

The Classic Sale at Silverstone Festival 2023 Cars 52 A superb example of this rare, alloy-bodied Elva Mk II finished in white with blue stripes running front to rear with motivation coming from a Coventry Climax FWA 1,100cc. A well known Elva that comes with period racing history, most notably from the US, where it raced at Laguna-Seca in the hands of Dan-San Abbott as well as additional outings at Sonoma, Monterey and Virginia International Raceway. Moving on to more recent times, the Elva has been maintained and prepared by Ian Nutall at ‘IN Racing’, and we are advised by the present owner, that the car is on the button and ready to race. It has its FIA/HTP ‘Class TSRC2 - Period 1947 to 1960’ valid until 31st December 2027, offering eligibility for such race series as the Stirling Moss Trophy or even the possibility of appearing at the Goodwood Revival. More recently, the Elva has undergone and passed an MOT inspection to allow for an application to be presented to the DVLA for road-registration which is expected to be confirmed in the near future and prior to sale, opening out the opportunities to compete in additional events throughout the UK and Europe. An enjoyable and compliant 1950s race car that could provide its next custodian with numerous possibilities to explore its capabilities to the full and as intended. A lovely, late-1950s, sports racer, FIA-papered, on the button and ready to go.
