Re: supersports

And to put Andy's comment in to perspective YSK was sold by Bonhams at their Goodwood Revival sale only a couple of years ago for £68750.00

Re: supersports

Hi Peter,

Good to see you again the other week at Donington.

The Morgan for sale at auction (again!) is the ex: Richards and then Jeff Stowe car.

It is owned by Sam Thomas at present.

Not a genuine Supersports (obviously!) but Jeff was always competitive in YSK...

Cheers,

Re: Mike Bell

What a lovely obituary for a lovely guy.

I didn't know Mike well but when we met one another at a circuit somewhere, we greeted one another like old friends, just because we both loved the same things...

Cheers Mike.

Re: Brakehorsepower forum

Hi all, I won't repeat my post from the Morgan Challenge Forum but suffice to say Andrew has summed it up perfectly! And Ian illustrates why it is so important to keep it going. I am sure between Ian and Machiel there is the makings of an interesting story to be aired on brakehorsepower! Cheers, Mark

Hi Jim,

Hope you are well.

Yes it is a 5 speed box albeit 38 years old.

You have been pipped to the post I am afraid!

However if the box doesn't go I will let you know.
