We recently had the pleasure of making a special delivery. For the last 15 years, 904-085 has been off the radar in a private collection and we are thrilled that our good friend and client Todd Blue has become its new owner and caretaker. Chassis 904-085 makes a fine addition to an already breathtaking collection and is certainly in good hands.
904-085, was first purchased by Don Moore of Don Moore Racing. Don partnered with well-known and accomplished gentleman racer Mike De Udly to race chassis 904-085 from 1964 to 1966. In its first outing, Mike won third place overall at the Goodwood circuit in 904-085 at the 29th Royal Automobile Club International Tourist Trophy.
Mechanical issues prevented 904-085 from finishing at the punishing 1000km races at Monza and Nürburgring, but on July 4th, 1965, Mike De Udlly and Paul Hawkins drove in top form to finish first in class and sixth overall in 904-085 at the grueling 12hrs of Reims. Shortly after, he claimed a fifth overall result during the German Sports Car Championship at Solitude.
On November 6th, 1965, after 291 laps and 1,192 kms around the fabled Formula One track, Mike De Udly finished 4th overall and 1st in class at the 9hrs of Kyalami in South Africa.
