Spa “Six Hours” – So close and yet so Spa…

Posted by Wilkinson

The Spa Six Hour meeting is seen as the pinnacle of historic motorsport; M & C Wilkinson had three E-Types competing with one in Pre 63 GT, one in Masters Gentleman Drivers and finally one competing in the infamous Six Hours!

M & C Wilkinson had high aspirations for Chris’s E-Type XAN 555 in the Six Hours against an incredible field of the world’s best Pre 66 GT cars; Matt Nicoll-Jones set an outright lap record for an E-Type/Pre 66 GT car in qualifying! Thus putting us sixth overall in the middle of ten GT40’s on the starting grid, some 2.5 seconds quicker than the closest GT car and 4.8 seconds quicker than the nearest E-Type!!
