Well said Simon. I am sure we will be one of many raising a glass to Quentin at Le Sarthe next year.

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

Re: 2 LITRE FORD PINTO ENGINE & GEARBOX FOR SALE

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.

Cheers,

Mark

Re: +8 Group 4: fotos?

Another thought...

Ted Walker at Ferret Fotographics.

He has a fantastic archive of racing photographs.

And he is a Morgan enthusiast too.

He has found some great photos of my car competing in the 1950's in some quite obscure competitions...!

Cheers

Re: +8 Group 4: fotos?

Well done with the sleuthing Bob. Just a thought... Did Miscellany or any of the contemporary weekly motor magazines (such as Autosport, Motoring News etc) ever photograph the Morgan hopefully under the bonnet...? Would Bruce remember if one of the motor mags ever did a 'piece' on the car? It was af...

Re: +8 Group 4: fotos?

Yes I was going to say exactly the same thing to Franz-Xaver Mary!

Especially as Bruce put a post up on For Sale and Wanted about my old engine very recently!

It was not given a great deal of time as we were led to believe that the powers that be in UK Motorsport had already received an exemption. However there was no discussion re...

Re: Bentley Win Bathurst 12 hour 2020

Many thanks for letting us all know John.

A great result for Bentley and I hope they let everyone know about it - even if (no surprise) the race cars are very different to what you can buy in the showroom.

Cheers

Hi John,

Hope you and yours are all keeping well and not getting too hot...?!

You won't be surprised to learn that Keith and TOK are also in.

Will we see you at Le Mans too?

Cheers
