SAR 5 was the first Lotus 8 chassis built and was extensively raced by Chapman and others during the 1954 season. In 1955 it passed to Austen Nurse and he in turn sold it to Roy Bloxham in 1956. Bloxham crashed the car at Mallory Park and it was repaired with a much shortened tail, which is how we see the car here.
