Lotus Cortina Mk1 Onboard - Saturday Race, VRG Turkey Bowl 2012
Green flag drops at about 3:40! Check out my channel's other racing videos too! This is my second race of the weekend in my 1965 Lotus Cortina Mk1. I arrived to the grid late, so I had a lot of work to do to work through traffic. It was a lot of fun, and I advanced from 15th to 1st!





The aftermath - massive crash of an XY GTHO at Lakeside Raceway March 2012 - a tribute
This is a tribute to a very very nice Group Nc replica XY GTHO race car. It is sobering footage. The driver Keith came away very sore and bruised (even 2 weeks later) but is OK. He is going to rebuild it. LONG LIVE THE FALCON GT/GTHO!!!





Auction of 1963 Lotus Cortina 8515 UN
This Lotus Cortina was offered on Thursday 22 March 2012, by Dorset Vintage & Classic Auctions (http://www.dvca.co.uk/) at The Gartell Light Railway, Common Lane, Yenston, Templecombe, Somerset, BA8 0NB. Part of the sales brochure reads : "...this rare, early 'Extra Special Equipment' example was originally raced by Ford Main Dealers Messrs Francis Garage Ltd of Colwyn Bay, who were the first registered owners of the motor car. The Lotus Cortina was then purchased by the current custodian's uncle, who became the car's second owner. His wife found the competition clutch too heavy, so sold the Lotus Cortina to his brother, who in turn allowed his son (the current custodian) to learn to drive and ultimately pass his test in it. 8515 UN was dry stored from 1971 until it was inherited by the current owner, who moved the motor car into his own workshops. In 2001, the decision was made to carry out a brief, light renovation of the Lotus Cortina. However, as is usually the case with these situations, the light renovation turned into a major restoration which took four years; even the nuts and bolts were carefully cleaned with a toothbrush for originality...! We are told that the body was completely refurbished and the engine rebuilt; the gearbox and drive train were stripped and checked, and the steering was overhauled. The interior front seats were reupholstered (the rear seat remains in excellent condition), and a new headlining and carpets were fitted. The instruments and switches were all original and working, so did not require attention at the time, but at present the rev counter does not return to zero and the temperature gauge will require a new capillary tube. We are assured that the radiator has been replaced and a new battery fitted. At present, the motor car is fitted with Minilite road wheels, but the original steel wheels will be supplied with the motor car, together with some spare parts. Regrettably, the front quarter bumpers and brackets are missing. 8515 UN has been enjoyed since the restoration was completed in 2005. Regrettably, it has now become available due to health reasons. Documentation in the file includes the original RF60 registration book, the V5C registration certificate, invoices, photographs, correspondence, various workshop manuals, a Lotus Cars Ltd spare parts list and a quantity of MOT test certificates (including the current, which expires 28.2.2013), together with a Shell lubrication wallet, containing the running costs of the Lotus Cortina from 10.2.1967 until 10.9.1967. A rare opportunity to purchase an exceptional motor car, which has been in the current family ownership for forty-six years." Hammer price was £42,500 plus buyer's premium (plus VAT).





1965 Ford Cortina GT MK1
http://motoexotica.com/inventory/6050/1965_Ford_Cortina_GT.htm • Rarely Seen European MKI Ford Cortina GT! • Incredible Restoration! • 1.5L OHV Kent 4 Cylinder! • Manual Transmission The Ford Cortina is a car built by Ford of Britain in various guises from 1962 to 1982, and was the United Kingdom's best-selling car of the 1970s. The Cortina was produced in five generations (Mark I through to Mark V, although officially the last one was called the Cortina 80) from 1962 until 1982. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is thrilled to offer a rarely seen Ford from all the way across the Pond! This 1965 Ford Cortina GT comes to us from a prominent, private collection and has benefitted from an incredible, nut & bolt restoration. This is one of the coolest European cars we've had in our showroom in a long time and it's well worth a good look! Finished in Monaco Red, the paint is in absolutely breathtaking condition. We are hard pressed to find imperfections to the paint or even the body. The body is extremely straight and solid. The chrome and bright work is also in excellent condition. This Cortina shows very well and is sure to turn heads, not only because it's so incredibly restored but also because it's very rare that one sees a Cortina GT out and about! The interior is very clean and simple. The black upholstery is in beautiful condition and you will notice that there are late racing seats installed. The carpet, door panels and headliner are all in comparable condition. The color matched dashboard and dash pad are in wonderful condition, showing no signs of fading or cracking. The dashboard houses a set of Auto Meter Phantom gauges (Oil Pressure, Water Temperature, Fuel Level, Voltage) and the original Ford Cortina speedometer and tachometer. These all look awesome. There is also an aftermarket AM/FM/CD player as well. Under the hood, you'll find that the engine bay is fresh and tidy. The later model Mark II 1600, overhead valve, Kent 4-cylinder (casting #681F 6015DA) starts up easily and runs excellent! Upon the engine is what appears to be an original two barrel carburetor and headers. The main wiring harness has also been cleaned up by a Painless Performance kit. Matched to the engine is a manual transmission, making this Cortina a blast to drive! It has power front disc brakes and it sits upon a set of 13" 8-spoke, gunmetal Midland Wheels wrapped in a set of new 185/60R13 tires that look great. It's already very hard to find a Cortina GT; it's MUCH harder to find one in condition such as this! The VIN is 3A77EG79301 and the mileage currently shows 86,219. It is being sold on a clean and clear title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
