Laidlaw Collection Chevron B16 For Auction

Irvine Laidlaw, the well-known enthusiast and owner of an incredible collection of historic racing cars, has taken the difficult decision to stop racing. His collection of remarkable sports racing cars will be auctioned by RM Auctions at their London sale in September. “I don’t regard myself as a collector. I am a car enthusiast and as an enthusiast I want to exercise my cars regularly, rather than gloat over them in the garage. So I have decided to sell the remaining competition cars and have consigned them to RM for auction as these are international cars, and RM is able to access buyers from all over the world. Having both bought and sold cars through their auctions in the past, I know that they present cars beautifully, while researching and reporting on history correctly. You know what you are getting when buying from RM.”

We’ll bring you more images from RM’s forthcoming sale, but this beautiful Chevron B16 is one of our instant favourites. 1970 Chevron B16, chassis no. DBE- B16-4 was raced in the Daytona 24 Hours is one of two Chevrons to be sold from the collection. More details of the other cars from the Laidlaw collection to follow.

If you love the sound of the Cosworth V8 as much as the V12 Merlin, the smell of Jet A1 as much as Castrol R and admire the late Ray Hanna as much as Sir Stirling, you’ll find you’re both on the same page. Neill's love of art deco buildings means that his ideal home would be a brilliant white, 1930′s control tower in Southern France, with crisply mown grass, biplane parked on the driveway and a Ferrari 288GTO in the garage. This is something that those around him tolerate, though it does concern them from time to time.
