daytona cobra at silverstone
These brutal evolutions of the AC Cobra roadster have become a favourite Sixties sportscar to recreate, and there are some of high quality examples that race competitively in premiere classic motorsport events like the Silverstone Classic. This striking white example is campaigned by Paul Pochciol and is pictured during testing at the 2019 Silverstone Classic Preview Day. with James Hanson at the wheel. The livery is significant in that it recreates the only time CSX2300 was repainted in the French Tricolore to race in the 1965 Nurburgring 1000km. Straight after the race it was returned to its original blue & white.
