Known as the 'Academy' series it features very close one make racing and has managed to appear on the calendar of both the Goodwood Revival in 2016 and the Silverstone Classic in 2017. Quite an achievement! This is the ultimate Austin A35 built for the former star of 'Dragons Den' and very successful businessman, Theo Paphitis. He simply required the very best and most solid Austin A35 road car which was acquired for him and then fully professionally built to full HRDC Academy Regulations. This included fitting fibreglass panels, racing safety equipment and a fresh 1275cc sealed Academy engine. The car has been successfully raced and developed in the main series as well as appearing at the Goodwood Revival in 2016 - when Theo was teamed up with Le Mans legend, Tom Kristensen. Additionally it also raced at the Silverstone Classic during 2017 and ended up finishing both races well and in one piece, no mean feat when considering the closeness of the racing Priced very realistically to sell today at a fraction of its original cost and offered, ready to race, in the Academy series which continues to run for these great little historic cars at circuits across the country.
