Bequet Delage

This car took part in the Vintage Seaman Trophy Race at the VSCC's SeeRed & Richard Seaman Memorial Trophies meeting at Donington Park in September 2007.
It's Alexander Boswell's 1923/17 Bequet Delage, which started off life in 1923 as a Delage 2LCV with a 2 litre V12 engine. When Maurice Bequet took possession of the then engine-less car he decided to mate it with the 12 litre V8 Hispano Suiza engine from a 1917 World War 1 SPAD fighter plane. The car was later acquired in a sorry state by Nigel Arnold-Forster who restored it in 1980.
