GELSCOE MOTORSPORT’S PRE – 65 GT40
After obtaining the complete and original set of GT40 drawings a number of years ago, Gelscoe Motorsport set out on the long road to recreating the 100% perfect GT40. Still kept in the original FAV drawing cabinet, the thousands of detailed hand drawn plans enabled us to reach that goal. Never before has anyone been able to manufacture a Chassis, or in fact complete Car to the standards of the Gelscoe pre-65 example.
Ronnie Spain and John Etheridge, both leading lights in the GT40 world, declared the Car “perfect in every respect”. In fact on first inspection Ronnie Spain asked what Chassis number it was for his records !.
The FIA now look upon the Gelscoe Motorsport example as the official continuation GT40 Car, not only due to the 100% detail, but the fact the Cars are constructed from the original drawings.
All the Cars built by Gelscoe Motorsport have been granted FIA HTP Papers. Chassis one has been raced in the Masters Historic Race series.
Every single part of the Car is made within the UK. The Chassis is constructed by our own team within Derbyshire and has never been anywhere near South Africa!.
