Re: morgans at Goodwood

At this years Members Meeting, no Morgans alas, but several racers, with strong showings , Olly Bryant, Billy Bellinger and the lovely Sharlie Goddard who also bagged a TV clip. Did Malcolm Paul race?
Sharlie was in a Sunbeam Rapier. I expect to see her in a Ford Capri next.
