Lotus 19 Monte Carlo Recreation - Goodwood 'Whitsun Trophy' For Sale
2016 Goodwood Whitsun Trophy Winner
Superbly built by Tolman Motorsports
Invites to future Goodwood Memberís Meeting & Revival
The subject of several magazine articles, the remarkable story of this car starts with 19 boxes of bits purchased from the estate of racing driver Roy Lane and culminates, just over three years later, with a victory in the 'Whitsun Trophy' at the Goodwood Revival in 2016.
Pivotal to its success was Chris Tolman and his team at Tolman Motorsport, and the heroics of former World Touring Car Champion Rob Huff who took the chequered flag in the wet.
The original Oldsmobile engine and Hewland transaxle from the Lane collection, was the starting point and 'role model' for the recreation of Chassis 19-965 - one of four machines that had been shipped (minus engine and transmission) to the States, and John Mecom Racing, whose drivers were AJ Foyt, Augie Pabst and Walt Hansgen.

Built in 12 months and then developed over 3 years of selected competition in the Masters Historic series, gaining podiums in class, this success story culminated in the car winning the 2016 Goodwood Revival Whitsun Trophy.
Invited to the Goodwood 75th Memberís Meeting and the 2017 Goodwood Rival this superb car is also eligible for the Masterís Historic Series.
