Cologne Capri with spare GAA (How much for that )
Capri RS2600 (Classic Le Mans eligible)
Sierra Cosworth RS500 GpA (There will be race for them sometime!)
Ex works Mk1 Escort rally car
A Gp B car- probably factory 205T16

Road cars? Pre War Aston for starters. A Gordon Keeble, early Pantera, Triumph 2.5pi or Cortina Savage Estate. Peanuts I know, and need also to complete my set of Ford AVO cars with a Twink and Mexico. Then would spend time and money building a collection of as many road going 'Homologation Specials' as I could. Starting with Mk1 Louts Cortina, unless anyone can suggest an earlier car that was produced for same purpose? Maybe need two of each- one standard and one as used in competition.

Plus of course somewhere to keep them all, a big rig to haul them about, and a second base in warmer climate....
Nice list Mike,what will you do with the change?

I would be quite happy with a scratch-card win big enough to turn my Spitfire into a proper race car and run it in a few races.... however.

Oh, and this for getting to and from the circuit, although I suspect JR will have me hung drawn and quartered at the front gates.

You can't exclude foreign ownership of Remus, especially given its original ownership (Chula) and driver (Bira).

...but he still can't have it because I'm front of the queue for ownership of the car, along with Romulus and Hanuman and ....

Firstly, 15M, pah! Forget the Saturday draw, I'd have the Friday draw......

And with that (about 60M) .......

Prise the lease for Donington from the hands of the administrators for 5M, restore the circtuit for racing, though continue with one plan that the muppet had - the original Melbourne Loop - bring that back in to play.

Then with the rest.





And finally -

I'd buy Rockingham Motor Speedway (the one in Northamptonshire), and restore proper racing to the oval, and encourage some more on it too - like our own Indycar series..... perhaps with a historic section for things like:

Right, lottery has been won and I've emailed my wish list to a wonderful company in Argentina who say they have nice original examples, with full history, of all the cars on my list.

Shipping is being arranged

Hi, It's good to see some people wanting to spend a small part of their fantasy winnings on a Crossle 9S. Just to clarify a misconception, all Crossle Sportscars are real just as Eamonn said about his own. I'm still working for Crossle after over 20 years, it was John Crossle who instigated the "Late Run" cars shortly before his retirement in '97. Under Arnie Black's ownership the 9S has been very successful in terms of sales and results. They've been built to a single spec using Dunnell Zetec power, originally for an Irish one make series, now they're mostly raced in SR&GT and also in Switzerland.
A small number of Continuation Historic HTP spec cars have been constructed by us for selected historic events. All Crossles are built with the same level of skill & dedication today as they have been for over 50 years, believe me, they are all real.

We have been here before.A new Crossle or Late Run,Continuation,Re created,Replica etc,etc is or should be cheaper than one with a traceable History as I see the bloke with the V8 engined car wants 100 k ish for it.I have been offered a Twink car with History for 85 K today.

I am sure the new cars are built same as the old things but they are NEW!

Refer to previous threads as the B8 man,The McLaren man ,Lola T70 man and all the other replica builders make the same point but with 14 million I would have an old one with History.

Pays your money and takes your choice.

Best of luck but it seems we are buying the old one and know we can get all bits should we need them from you in N.Ireland.

Welcome to the Crossle fold, please contact us at the factory if you get the car so we can keep our records up to date.
For the record, I would go for the Rodriguez Brands Hactch 917, plus a few Crossles of course.

There's nothing I would want more than a 1970s Grand Prix car and/or F5000.

Lotus 72D would be a definite:


Brabham BT45D would be my chosen car of the mid-to-late 1970s:


F5000...anything with a real meaty look about it...Lola T332 probably:
