For Sale – Spitfire Vintage Racer and Motorhome

My friend Russ Moore hung up his helmet for the last time this year, and is selling his immaculate Spitfire race car and the motorhome that towed it. Well known to Triumph racers from the east, this is an opportunity to hop into a well sorted race car and proven tow vehicle.

Asking $16,000 for the Spitfire racer, and $15,000 for the motorhome/tow vehicle. Contact Russ at
