Recently confirmed cars restored by Classic Motor Cars

 

Lindner Nocker Low-drag Lightweight Jaguar E-type

Often considered the most beautiful E-type ever produced, it was raced by Lindner and Peter Nöcker at Le Mans in 1964 before being involved in a massive accident a few weeks later. During a heroic 7000 hours restoration by Classic Motor Cars, craftsmen managed to salvage 90% of the original metal so this stunningly beautiful car may be restored but is arguably one of the most original Lightweight E-types.

 

 

1954 XK120 SE by Pininfarina

 

The only XK120 Pin​in​farina ever produced make​s​ this a truly rare Jaguar. Classic Motor Cars spent over 6000 hours on a nut​-​and​-​bolt restoration matching tiny patches of original paint and leather to reveal a car looking just as it did at the 1955 Geneva ​M​otor​Show. Mechanically, it runs on an XK120 3.4 SE (C-​t​ype Head) straight-6 engine, with Double SU H6 carburettor and 180 bhp (134 kW; 182 PS) @ 5300 rpm.

1955 Jaguar XK140 FHC

 

Driven as a private entry in 1956 at the 24 hours of Le Mans by Roger Walshaw and Peter Bolton, this XK140 completes a trio of fine machinery from Classic Motor Cars. Another painstaking restoration, using as many original parts as possible, allowed a return to Le Mans in 2016 competing in the Classic. It is testament both to the car and the work done by CMC that this was the fastest XK140 with an overall finish in 13th place.

RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Flypast

CA-47 Dakota will fly over the XK70 site on Saturday and Sunday

 

The Royal Air Force BBMF operates from RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire.  The mission is to maintain the priceless artifacts of our national heritage in airworthy condition in order to commemorate those who have fallen in the service of this country, to promote the modern day Air Force and to inspire the future generations.

 

Flown by regular serving RAF Aircrew, the Flight operates six Spitfires, two Hurricane Mk 2Cs, a Lancaster and a C47 Dakota. HRH Prince William of Cambridge is their Patron.

 

The Douglas C-47 Dakota is, without doubt, one of the most successful aircraft designs in history.  It became one of the world's most famous military transport aircraft and saw widespread use by Allies during World War Two and subsequently by Air Forces and civilian operators worldwide.

Local Charity Partners - Midland Air Ambulance

 

MAA is the charity responsible for funding and operating three air ambulances serving the communities of six Midlands counties: Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and the West Midlands. This constitutes the largest air ambulance operating region in the UK. The charity also provides secondary cover to the surrounding areas.

 

Since 1991, the charity has responded to more than 49,000 missions, averaging 2,000 per year, making it one of the longest established and busiest air ambulance organisations in the UK.

 

The charity's three aircraft each carry a crew comprising pilot, two paramedics or flight doctors plus full life-supporting medical equipment. Operating from strategically located regional airbases, 90% of the region is within reach in eight minutes.

 

The rapid response of the WMAA is so vital in an emergency situation - if a patient reaches a hospital within the Golden Hour (60 minutes after their injury), their chance s of survival are dramatically increased.

 

the MAA received no Government of Lotter funding. Each ambulance mission costs £2,500 and in excess of £9 million is needed each year to keep the ambulance operational.
