When I write a story for #privatemotorclub it's only half done. Its then up to the wonderful editor and founder of the journal @thetimhutton to find locations, cars and world class photographers (and a model in this case!) to bring the whole thing to life. In Issue 7 we tell the tale of one of motor racing's forgotten heroes, Helle Nice, a works Bugatti driver who was accused of being a Nazi spy. Espionage, racing and lovers, it's one not to be missed!

Quite simply the most successful racing Bugatti of all time, the Bugatti Type 35 took the Grand Prix World Championship in 1926 after winning 351 races and setting 47 records in 1924 and 1925. The 35 proved to be particularly handy at the Targa Florio, winning the Sicilian race for five consecutive years from 1925 to 1929. The Type 35 was still so relevant in 1929 that William Grover-Williams drove one to victory in the first Monaco Grand Prix to be repeated in 1930 by ReneDreyfus. Our highly detailed and slightly weathered 1:8 scale replica is of Bartolomeo ‘Meo’ Costantini’s victorious stead as raced at the seventieth running of the Targa Florio in 1926, where Bugatti dominated with a 1-2-3 victory.
