Date Result Event Driver # Reference
1965/apr - Ecurie Francorchamps, B  
1965/apr - repainted in Belgian racing color, yellow. Pininfarina badge on right front fender behind the arch.
Removable bar over gearbox, enabling removal of engine with gearbox in one.

Important Disclaimer:

Ecurie Francorchamps was also racing second 250 LM, s/n 6023, however that other car had a single wiper spindle only.

Travel carnets were required for unregistered cars to cross borders. If whichever car originally intended for a particular race was not race-ready, the chassis tags of 6023 and 6313 would be swapped as needed, to match any previously-obtained travel carnet. Consequently, racing records have to be reconciled against photographic evidence to determine which of the two cars was racing where, and/or with which race number!

Important Note:
After the right rear tyre blew, repairs to the engine cover necessaried twin weld lines where new sheet metal was inserted. Those remained evident, serving to authenticate s/n 6313 in subsequent years, up until late 2002.

1973/apr - David Piper, GB
Important Note:
Coming out of David Piper's ownership, 6313 carried the chassis tag of 6023 (also owned by him at that time), and had engine 16/LM from 5909 installed, however the latter also stamped 6023.
These altered numbers caused 6023 and 6313 to be mis-identified for one-another for nearly 30 years, although the aforementioned two wiper spindles and twin weld lines in the repaired engine cover always reliably distinguished 6313.
The tags in both cars, and the engine stamping, would finally be corrected around 2017.
