French for ‘Team Scotland’
Home to one of our favorite team colors out there. A quick history lesson:
Ecurie Ecosse (fr.Team Scotland) was a motor racing team from Scotland. Founded in 1952 by Edinburgh businessman and racing driver David Murray and mechanic Wilkie Wilkinson, its most notable achievement was winning both the 1956 and 1957 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Ecurie Ecosse were based at Merchiston Mews in Edinburgh; their cars were always distinctive in their Flag Blue Metallic paint…
The Team was accompanied by a 2-axle double-deck car transporter capable of carrying three cars (one inside and two on top) together with a support crew, and with mobile workshop facilities.
The transporter was built by coachbuilders Alexander, of Falkirk, Scotland. Based on a Commer chassis it is powered by a Commer TS3 three cylinder horizontally-opposed two-stroke diesel engine.
The transporter has been restored and is still in use (source).
