Ford GT40

I photographed this car in the paddock at the SeeRed meeting at Donington Park in September 2006, but there's no record in the programme of the car having taken part in any of the races at that meeting.
FAV 216C is a 1965 Ford GT40, and although two GT40s were entered in the Sports Racing Masters race, neither of them was this car and there was no number 25 due to take part in that race. It's apparently chassis P/1005, but I can't find much information about the car or who owned it in 2006, only that it was apparently destroyed in a fire in 1974 when owned by Salt Walther. I've seen another website that says the P/1005 identity has been passed to P/1127, a GT40 replica built by Safir Engineering Ltd, so that is presumably what this car is.
