There is only one Baz and I too was under the impression it had been auctioned and someone in the States had bought it. Never thought I would see it again, so was realy surprised to see it at Donington :o :D

I had suggested it should be refused an export licence, a procedure used to keep significant antiques and suchlike from being exported. It has happened to less worthwhile things. Perhaps the owner is keeping it in Europe for the moment to attend the various meetings of the "historic season"?

They are all a fabulous look back in time. I especially like the Ecurie Ecosse truck. There is another, actually. Available here :

And at a fraction of the price :D
