B-Series: Middlehurst (Lotus) equals Graham Hill!

Five wins in Monaco. Just like the late Graham Hill, who lends his name to this B-Series at the 14th Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, Andy Middlehurst has won again in the Principality. And this for the 5th time: 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018 and now 2024, in a 1962 Lotus 25 which won several Grands Prix in the hands of the great Jim Clark. It’s a well-born single-seater whose record of achievements continues to grow. In this series reserved for F1 cars from the early 1960s, with 1500cc engines, Middlehurst, who started from pole position, had to hold off ‘Joe’ Colasacco, a winner here in 2004 and 2022, until the 10th and final lap. Thanks to the qualities of his 1964 Ferrari 1512 (ex-John Surtees and Lorenzo Bandini), the American got off to an excellent start, jumped from the second row of the grid and then kept up the suspense right to the end, finishing only 7 tenths behind the winner. The podium was completed by another Briton, Mark Shaw, in another Lotus, ahead of the venerable Brabham BT7 of Lukas Halusa and the Cooper T71/73 of Christopher Drake. This did not look like a B-Series at all!
