Graham Hill’s Shadow spotted at the NEC

Frustrated by a lack of results with Brabham in 1972, Graham Hill launched his own team in 1973 and bought a single chassis from the Shadow team to race in 1973. The car – DN1 – was on display and used in 12 Grand Prixs, but results were disappointing, with a lowly ninth place in Spa being the only season highlight. DN1 was kept by the Hill family after his death in 1975 before being sold to an American collector in the 1980s. Today the car is back in Britain and owned by Daryl Taylorin who also commissioned its ground-up restoration.
