This Original Connaught Type-A, Chassis Number A6, was built in 1952 and raced by the Connaught Racing Syndicate during that year.  It was then displayed on the Connaught stand at the 1952 Motorshow.

It was purchased by Major E.G.Thompspn from the stand for David Murry's Scottish Racing Team Ecurie Ecosse and prepared by them for the 1953 season.

At the end of 1954 the car was sold on and eventually went into long term storage, a fact which no doubt contributed to its excellent degree of preservation. By 1989 chassis A-6 had been purchased by a Mr Burrell who initiated a major recommissioning and testing programme before entering it into historic races at Silverstone, Donington and Curborough over 1989-1991.

In 2005 it was fully restored and made race ready by JD Classics and then entered into some of the world’s most prestigious events including the Goodwood Revival in 2009, and Monaco and Goodwood once again in 2010.

The car is currently 'on the button' and ready for the new owner to add to its illustrious history
