Goodwood, 23rd March, 2020

In light of the latest developments regarding COVID-19 and the Government guidelines, the Bonhams Goodwood Members Meeting Sale, due to take place as a ‘closed auction’ on Sunday 29 March, has been cancelled.

All Lots Listed Still Available for Sale


However, all lots listed in the Sale catalogue are still offered for sale and interested parties should contact the Bonhams UK Motor Car department by telephone on +44 (0) 20 7468 5801 or email: ukcars@bonhams.com.

..........

The 78th Members’ Meeting at the legendary Goodwood Motor Circuit recreates the atmosphere and camaraderie of the original closed-to-Club BARC Meetings held at Goodwood from 1949 to 1966. As a founding sponsor, Bonhams is privileged to present another exceptional sale of Sports, Competition and Touring cars at 1 PM BST on 29 March 2020.

This Lister-Maserati was the works-entered sports-racing car campaigned by a hugely admired, enduringly well-respected and – perhaps above all – much-loved motor racing character of the 1950s: the unique, the quite extraordinary, Archie Scott-Brown.

During the latter part of the 1955 racing season, Brian Lister had completed the design of a brand-new works car for 1956. He and Archie had always been impressed by the evident power and torque of Salvadori's Maserati engine. Now he was determined to combine those attributes with his provenly effective tubular chassis design, which was considerably lighter than the standard Maserati's.

The car resurrected the identity of a previous works Lister, chassis 'BHL 1', combined with its UK road registration number 'MER 303'. The Lister équipe's engine development and preparation partner was an engineer named Don Moore. He had found a model of Colonel 'Goldie' Gardner's famous record-breaking MG 'EX179', and having great regard for the Abingdon-built record-breaking cars, Brian Lister adopted a similar body form for his new Lister-Maserati:
"We modified the shape to fit the chassis and engine we had to use and to comply with the regulations"
.

Frontal areas was exceptionally low with an overall body width of some 4ft 7ins and a scuttle height of just 2ft 3ins – a 20 per cent frontal area reduction from the original Lister works body. Weight was claimed to be less than 10½cwt, and adoption of 10-inch diameter Girling disc brakes (instead of drums) alone saved 40lbs. The disc brakes were carried outboard at the front and inboard at the rear.

Archie Scott Brown was to achieve three 1st place finishes with the Lister-Maserati, plus 2nd places at Brands Hatch at Oulton Park. Archie's utterly spectacular driving style, with 'MER 303' shimmering around circuits on the absolute limit of its tyre adhesion, dancing, twitching and sliding through every corner, remained a crowd-riveting delight.
