  • The Canon-liveried 1984 Brands Hatch 1,000 km winner. Sold to Walter Brun in 1985 & won the Team World Championship title in 1986, ahead of the Rothmans Porsche and Silk Cut Jaguar factory teams.

    One of the seven early customer 956s built, sold new to Richard Lloyd and raced by his GTI Engineering team. 

    Originally in Canon livery, it enjoyed a chequered career over four seasons, its most notable result for 1983 being pole at Mugello, co driven by Derek Bell and Henri Toivenen, finishing 3rd and also finishing 3rd at the Silverstone 1,000 km and third on aggregate (first on the road) at the 1983 Nurburgring 1000km, this time being co driven by world F1 champion Keke Rosberg; the last time Group C cars, or any proper prototype sports machines, would race on the fearsome full Nurburging circuit. It came eighth at Le Mans that year helmed by Jan Lammers and Jonathan Palmer, two of its more regular drivers.

    It raced again in 1984, still in Canon livery but results were hard to come by in the early part of the season  , this time leading the works Rothmans cars at Silverstone by a lap before a water leak dropped them to fifth, and also securing a second place at the 200 mile Norisring round, 3rd at the Monza 1,000 km, fourth at the Nurburgring 1,000 km and two further  fifth places and an eventual retirement at Le Mans, after dicing and leading during the first four hours. 

    But at Brands Hatch it all came together beautifully with Lammers and Palmer achieving the pole, fastest lap and win hat-trick.

    The car was then sold to Walter Brun for whom it raced for two seasons in numerous liveries in the hands of the likes of Derek Bell, Hans Stuck, Jochen Mass, Gerhard Berger, Frank Jelinski, Thierry Boutsen, and many more – achieving many podium finishes and it’s final race seeing it home in second place at Mount Fuji, a result that ensured Brun won the 1986 sports car World Championship.

    Although it spent much the intervening time as a show car in Eterna colours, it has recently been returned to its original Canon livery.
