London Classic Car Show – Trophy presentation (in memory of Colin Pool)
Le Mans – ‘Spirit of La Sarthe’ Trophy presentation on TIGOSE Partner H&H Classics stand:
H&H Classics hosted the Presentation of the ‘Spirit of La Sarthe’ Trophy to racing driver David Clark during the London Motor Show weekend.
The trophy is awarded each year to the highest placed British team in the Le Mans 24-hour race.
A magnificent futuristic trophy designed by Julius Thurgood, the ‘Spirit of La Sarthe’ features the iconic Dunlop Bridge that spans the Le Mans track.
David Clark was a Director of McLaren Cars F1 road car and race programmes from 1994-1998. He is a celebrated historic car dealer and racer, with a lifelong involvement in the historic car business and modern motor racing. In the past 20 years he has raced worldwide at all the historic motorsport blue riband events with considerable success.
The Trophy idea was dreamed up by Colin Pool and TIGOSE Founder Michael Scott before Colin’s untimely death two years ago. Michael’s aim was to honour his friend and BRDC member Colin Pool who was secretary of the Club de Pilotes du Mans (an exclusive club of those drivers who’ve competed at Le Mans), of which he was a Director.
