Re: supersports

FOJ is currently in the 'garaged, accumulating cobwebs' group but hopefully will be out again soon... FOJ and I raced against AR9 343 (DM Historics) at Le Mans Classic 2018.

Re: Quentin

sad news indeed. Quentin was a great supporter/enthusiast of anyone lucky enough to be racing a Mog at Le Mans Classic and definitely made the logistics a whole lot easier - hopefully we can raise a glass to him when we return in 2021

However, KKC 888 was not a member of the '51 Silverstone Relay Team? These were Jeff Sparrowe in the ex factory '...

Re: Mike Bell

Very sad news indeed. I didn't really know Mike, only ever having brief conversations, but very much admired his driving - more recently in last years Techniques trophy at BDC. I don't recall why Mike, driving Simon OG's +4, started down the grid (presume some issue in quali) but he certainly made u...

Re: Brakehorsepower forum

I hope BHP continues - it really should, for the reasons others have already stated. BHP has been a great reference and place for discussion over the years. At least today I can say I am a [small] contributor rather than more frequently simply a browser.

Re: +4 Supersport

Well done Ian - I guess your grandad would be equally delighted! Always nice to hear about other Supersports still out there.

Re: 1937 Morgan 4/4 back on the road after 47+ years

Colin, congratualtions!

What a super looking car. I hope you get the steering sorted to your satisfaction. After all the effort you've put into it to get it back to looking so good it would be a great shame if you can not go on to enjoy the rewards such a lovely car should bring.

regards,

Simon

Re: Annual Lunch

Hi John,

we've never needed to book the room previously, but out of courtesy we have always let them know we're coming. Unless you have already taken matters in hand I can give them a call.

Hi Bill, not been on brakehorsepower for a little while so only noticed the photo you had uploaded today. I almost feel guilty having changed how the car looks - but I'll get over it. What a great photo though and thank you for uploading it. Shame there's no date on the photo but DLJ looks to be in ...
