Silverstone International GT Race 1962-05-12 Dick Prior Steve Minoprio

The first Marcos to race at Le Mans, but mainly competed in the UK by Richard Prior.

Based on an earlier assymetrical chassis, as used on the last version of the Xylon

Note the forward hinged ‘semi gullwing’ doors (hinges on the A-post rather than the roof) and the extra headlampcover-retainers

Le Mans 1962

Unfortunately the Gullwing of Hine & Prior did not last 24 hours at Le Mans (picture above). Although it was a privately owned car, it was officially entered by the works.
