Happy Sunday! On this week’s Motorsport Prospects Last Lap I look at the new Gordon Murray T.33 Supercar, a road-going version of the KTM GT2 XBow, the “Laps for Laguna” charity race, a lap of the Nurburgring with Derek Bell in a Rothmans Porsche 956 and more!

  • The Classic Sports Racing Group (CSRG) published its 2022 racing schedule in mid-December and the May 21-22 race date will be of interest to a much wider audience than historic racers. “Laps for Laguna” is a new event, the joint creation of both the CSRG and non-profit Laguna Seca Raceway Foundation (LSRF). The late-spring unrestricted-sound (no mufflers!) vintage event will feature CSRG run groups and a whole host of off-track special events celebrating many of the enthusiast and marque clubs in the Salinas Valley and Monterey Peninsula, with all proceeds going to the non-profit 501c3 LSRF. Sounds like it will be a fantastic event.
  • If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to lap ‘old’ Nurburgring in one of the fastest race cars ever built and with a World Champion driver, now’s your chance to find out! In 1983, Duke Video put an in-car camera in a works Rothmans Porsche 956 with Derek Bell, giving you a terrific driver’s-eye-view as he takes you round the old Nurburgring circuit at up to 220mph! Watch the video below.
  • Finally, watch M-Sport build a Rally Car from scratch in the video “How to Build a Rally Car” below.

That’s it for this week’s Motorsport Prospects Last Lap. Have a great Sunday and stay safe!
