Lancia Aurelia B20 GT

This car was in the Paddock at the VSCC's Hawthorn Memorial Trophies meeting at Oulton Park in June 2008.
It's a 1954 Lancia Aurelia B20 GT and I took the photograph because it's a car that you don't see very often, even at historic race meetings. It has a 2½ litre V6 engine, and what's particularly special about this one is that it was once owned by the 1958 World Champion Mike Hawthorn himself. You can read about Mike and the car in this Mike Hawthorn tribute site.
