Description

LOTUS EUROPA chassis, modified class car built sometime pre-1987 and previously owned and raced by Gavin Scott in England. Championship winning car, has led flag to flag at Brands Hatch. This is presently a roller that comes with a low-use 13b Bridgeport rotary engine built by Louie Rivera of The Mazda-Honda Shop in Denver CO. and one other spare rotary engine. Modified Europa chassis with alloy shear panels and trick suspension. Suspension was designed by Geoscan, and was built to win. And it did. Plumbed in fire suppression, Lexan windows, full cage, bagged fuel tanks, MANY spares!!! Needs a Hewland Mk.9, FT 200, Mazda Star Series transaxle or what have you, depending on the final HP applied. I purchased it from a fellow in Los Alamos several years ago and was going to make a wild street/race car out of it, but have 10 race cars and do not have time for this one, at present. Would be a fun project for someone for track or street use. Trick Europa Chassis with two engines for $7,200... A deal....

History

Statement by previous owner. I never finished the car myself. Never drove it. Didn't ever receive the detailed history from Gavin Scott short of a newspaper clipping from the flag to flag win at Brands Hatch. Gavin sold the previous owner the car in 2002, and its been stored indoors ever since. He was the European importer of Red Line Oil last I talked to him. I imagine he could still be reached for confirmation of the car's history . The bodywork he did is not pretty, but the chassis work is all there. Put your own modified Europa body ( or something else) on it, if desired. Again, this is a full race machine built on the Europa chassis. Everything hand built around the center channel.
