His treasured Ferrari was used in the Steve McQueen movie Le Mans in a crash scene, and also driven by legendary racing drivers Mario Andretti, Ronnie Peterson and Arturo Merzario. Its wreckage was lovingly restored thanks to Nick (65).
The car – which has 12 cylinders and is capable of 200mph – was driven around Cadwell by motoring journalist and racing driver Mark Hales to take part in a comparison test drive with a £2.4-million Porsche 917, owned by former racing driver David Piper.
Nick said: “I have raced with the Vintage Sports Car Club, which comes here regularly. I raced a Bugatti.
“It is a great circuit and it’s so nice to see the infrastructure looked after so well.
“The car is a fairly fierce bit of kit and was made for 1,000km races such as Le Mans.
“With a small wing at the back, it is particularly exciting to drive.”
