The 1972 FIA European 2 Liter Sports Car Championship for Makes was dominated by the new Abarth SE021. The Abarth team Drivers Arturo Merzario, Derek Bell and Tone Hezemans won both the Manufacturers and Drivers championship. The final race of the season at Silverstone, saw Merzario lap the entire field to win the drivers championship and clinch the manufacturer’s title for Abarth. Chassis number 0021 is Tony Hezeman’s, 1972 Vallelunga winning factory team car. Following a period of approximately 20+ years on display at the famous Rosso Bianco museum, a full bare chassis restoration was completed in 2008. The car still retains the correct, original Abarth twin cam engine which has been completely rebuilt. The restoration has been fully photo documented and engine rebuild is accompanied by dyno test results. Following testing at Buttonwillow Raceway and one club race at Laguna Seca the car has run at the 2008 and 2009 Monterey Historic Races. The car has been inspected by FIA representative Jeremy Hall and has been issued FIA Historic Technical Passport for participation in all international historic competition events.
