Ecurie Ecosse Collection sells for £8.8million

Dick Skipworth's collection of team 'Ecurie Ecosse' vehicles has sold in the UK for £8.8m. The Scottish team won two consecutive Le Mans 24hr races in 1956 and 1957. The huge surprise on the day was the 1960 Commer TS3 transporter with a two-stroke engine which sold for £1.8m (over $AU3.2m or just a touch under $US3m).
