Huge gathering of Ecurie Ecosse classics set for Edinburgh

Published 03 June 2015

The largest ever gathering of Scotland’s famous Ecurie Ecosse racing team will take place in September. It will be the centrepiece at the Concours of Elegance, which is held at the Palace of Holyroodhouse from 4-6 September.

Ecurie Ecosse was formed in 1951, having been started by David Murray, Wilkie Wilkinson and Iain Stewart.

They claimed victories in the 1956 and 1957 Le Mans 24 Hours races. And Its iconic metallic blue livery was also seen in Formula One and Formula Two.

On display at this year’s Concours of Elegance will be a notable selection of the team’s most famous cars throughout the years, including three C-types and two of the team’s hugely successful D-types. Best of all, the legendary 1959 Commer Transporter will be on display.

Ecurie Ecosse team patron Hugh McCaig said: “Ecurie Ecosse has such an incredible history and the beautiful cars that raced under its name are rightly revered by Scottish motor sport fans. Seeing some of the historic icons of this team next to our modern-day racer is going to be something really special.”
