    Have to admit, after a while had assumed indifference :)

    Having debated whether or not to crop…crop won, so here's another one to whet your appetite.

    After the Le Mans win Gordon had the winning car brought back to the factory unwashed for a photo shoot with the trophies….some of us took advantage of the opportunity 

    Still holds true as far as I am aware. Two road cars and a GTR in Bahrain.

    Any word on cars that have paperwork problems or might be involved in lawsuits of some kind. I'm thinking of the Munroe car or similar problems that are rumored on some cars over the years.

    Munroe road car = #069 - for sale by McLaren themselves as of last year.

    Munroe race car = 27R - private ownership and back in 1997 Parabolica colours (all the better for it too)

    There's one chassis tied up in a quarter of a billion dollar legal complaint in the USA at the moment - not sure of the car's present location or when and how that might be resolved. Before that news broke this particular F1 had already been through a bit of bad luck, so whatever the outcome it won't be the most important historical point.

    The others that I'm familiar with that developed "legal troubles" have all come through clean on the other side. In fact with F1 069, the Munroe incident wasn't the only time it had an issue. After the recent sale that MSO Heritage brokered it is now onto its 5th owner and in very good hands.

    Here's an interesting story surrounding GTR 19R after it left the USA in 2009, offering a cautionary tale for any future buyers of high valued cars. If you scroll to the bottom they offer a .PDF of the judgement with more detail.

    Believe it is and history seems to indicate it probably won't be going anywhere else soon.

    F1 GTR chassis 11R still in northern Italy, sadly it's not driven so much, maybe it's not driven at all!
