This 1972 Abarth Osella SE 021, chassis number SE021/0020 was constructed for the 1972 season and campaigned by the Italian Scuderia Brescia Corse as a works entry in the championship to be driven by Arturo Merzario and Derek Bell when 'Little Art' was otherwise engaged.
Chevron had won in 1970 and Lola in ’71. In the first round Merzario, starting from pole had built up a 30 second lead before being forced to retire with a broken suspension mount. He went on to win at Dijon and again at both Silverstone and Enna, scoring a podium at Barcelona with Bell finishing with a win at Jarama.
Merzario won the driver’s championship and Abarth-Osella the Manufacturers title by some margin. For sales at Will Stone Historic Cars
