What a beauty!!!
Colin Chapman and Frank Costin were consultants to Vandervell Racing in 1956 and this was the result.
Stirling Moss won the International Trophy at Silverstone but 1956 was a lean year.In 1957 it was developed a little and driven by Stuart Lewis-Evans and Roy Salvadori but it was seriously under-developed and the body was put away never to race again. The chassis though received a more normal body setting fastest lap in Italy driven by Tony Brooks, Stirling Moss won that race in a VW5.
