Re: B D C

Blessed Mary, had I anticipated that you would circulate my Ramblings to a wider audiencew, then before penning said article, I would have consulted my well thumbed Fowlers Modern English Usage (that is if I could find it in the detritus of my study) and paid more attention to the grammar, structure...

Re: B D C

With such good cars and racing on offer it is understandable if there are no spares.
However, If there are any i would welcome one as the pretty red car is in the hospital and I had to withdraw.
my e mail is
ptrafter1947@yahoo.co.uk
In any case I hope all goes well with the weather and the racing

Re: B D C

Technical complications with the pretty red car means that I have had to withdraw from Silverstone next weekend. BDC have been supportive and helpful.
However if anybody has a spare ticket I would be grateful

for other meets e.g. MG there can be up to 4 passes
if you need tickets post a request here on line and if any drivers have spares then they can share

Re: Radio interviews about Morgan Challenge

Blessed Mary, this was in no way loose torque. Impressive. Complimente. You have covered all bases included drivers supporters and preparers. I do hope they suitably recompensed you ( a crate of Guinness or a few bottles of single malt Irish whiskey?) if so and they are not to your taste i may dig o...

Re: Circuit up-date

As an ever hopeful entrant in the Donington Rce I have received 4 electronic tickets. I don't have that many supporters even after discounting my disloyal family who prefer Sailing, Wild water swimming and Football.

Re: Racing News!

MSV are showing empathy with OZ and the lockdown in Melbourne and have excluded the Melbourne loop from this coming weekends race at Donington. Pity, it added to what is still a fine track. So must remember my panic breaking point on the Dunlop straight to make the Fogarty esses. The Loop will be th...
