Ralt RT3 at auction

Post by andrewcliffe »

I notice a 1982 Ralt RT3 went for £ 113,300 at Silverstone Auctions in May. Provenance because it was Senna's car.

That's funny because I seem to remember when he was in F3 Senna drove a white Ralt with 'Pool' written on it. I think he may have only driven this recently sold car once...
Mind you every RF82 ever put up for sale in UK has been driven by Senna and of course all Formula Renaults for sale have been driven by Kimi.
Since the discovery of the Higgs Boson and the strengthening of the The Standard Model it is now clear that we live in several or perhaps an infinite number of parallel universes I can now confirm that my car has been driven by Jim Clark, James Hunt, Tazio Nuvalari, Mario Andretti and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Does it make it worth £113,000? If so offers please.

The white 'Pool' car was 1983, blue in 1982.

I think it may have been the bellhousing that i supplied for that Ralt that made it worth the £113,000

This was an ex Mono car, once the property of John and Linda Elmes and more recently of Geoff Pashley. It is the car tha Senna drove at Thruxton at the end of '82. Not to be confused with my ex Trott car that was raced by Senna at ulton in August '83.
