This 2-litre FIA race car was built in 2009 by Glynn Evans and sold to the current owner in May of that year. It carries the identity of chassis 300915 but has been re-shelled using a sound and complete SWB 911 chassis. The car has a correct, non-matching, 1965 type 901/01 engine and 1966 type 902/01 gearbox.
The car was first raced at the Goodwood Revival Meeting in 2009 by well-known Porsche Club member Jeff Moyes. The current owner then campaigned the car extensively from 2010 to 2015. He competed in some major events such as Le Mans Classic (2014), the Goodwood Members Meeting (2015), the GT & Sports Car Cup (2010, 2011, 2013) and HSCC Guards Trophy (2010, 2011).
The owner used well respected early 911 race specialists Steve Monk and Steve Winter for support as well as Sportwagen for minor bodywork. There are two bills from Sportwagen on file, one in 2010 for what is described as ‘pitlane damage’ and one in 2015 to correct what is described as minor corrosion in the front scuttle and bonnet.
The engine was rebuilt by well-known Porsche engine specialist Nick Fulljames at Redtek as a full race engine in 2016 and has not been used in anger since. A rolling road test at the time showed a power output of 170bhp. The engine drives very nicely with a wide power band and would be perfect for use in a road racing event such as the Tour Auto.
At the end of 2018, the car was given 40 hours of preparation by Andy Prill for service as a Course Car at the popular Goodwood Revival Meeting, a task it completed with flying colours.
