It is the Lambda owned and raced by the late John Vessey, who died recently. Here are some photos of it at the LMC AGM in 1980.

Thanks for the replies, I have updated the Lancisti thread, out of interest was John the creator or did he buy it as is?

He was the creator - and very good it was, too! All Lambda owners will miss John.

This is another picture of it on the 2012 Sliding Pillar Rally. John is in the passenger seat.
