Pittard and Wolfe Engineering Elan 26R reunite to defend Spa6hr Title

Pittard and Wolfe Engineering Elan 26R reunite to defend Spa6hr Title

David Pittard and the Wolfe Engineering Lotus Elan 26R owned by Graham Wilson, will return to one of the historic racing highlights of the year, the Spa 6hrs on September 15th. He will partner again long term driver Olly Stirling and British GT driver and International GT Open champion Shaun Balfe.

On his debut in the race in 2017, David qualified the Elan on class pole position, 17th overall and with the help of co-drivers Graham Wilson and Olly Stirling bought the car home 1st in class and 7th overall in a top class field of the best drivers and car preparers in Europe.

The race that starts at 16:00 Saturday afternoon starts in the daylight and finishes at 22:00 in the darkness, is for pre66 GT cars that attract cars like Ford GT’s, Jaguar E-Types, and AC Cobras and is one of the highlights of the Historic racing calendar 1 week after the Goodwood Revival.

“It’s awesome to have been asked back to the Spa6hr, a huge thank you to Graham for the invite. It was one of the highlights last year, starting the race in the day and going into the evening. Especially in the mighty giant killing Lotus Elan 26R owned by Graham and prepared by Andy Wolfe which has a fantastic pedigree at this event. It is a great shame that Graham has to miss the event this year, but to have such a successful driver like Shaun added to the line-up is very confidence inspiring for the race!”

The Wilson Elan has won the Spa 6hrs 4times in the past 5 years, and the team hope to make it 5wins in 2018.
