Re: Brakehorsepower forum

This is indeed great news. Chris has done so much for the Morgan community despite in recent years living in France and not having a Morgan any more. It was great to see him at Pau a couple of years ago. Thank you Chris. Andy should be a great successor and I am sure will maintain high standards in ...

Re: Brakehorsepower forum

This is an excellent forum for learned and erudite debates. It allows more in depth discussion than Facebook. It would be good if were to be used more by competitors. Long may it continue.

Re: Web site updates 2018

The leading contenders for the Morgan Challenge Championship are a very moral bunch. My phone his neither rung to encourage me to enter, nor for that matter, rung to discourage me from entering. Do the leading contenders not have 'whips' working for them?

Bob
This is a brilliant idea. I too am 'a survivor' of the 1985 season. My life really did change from the day I arrived at Castle Combe for my first race. I would be happy to ransack my memory to help.

Re: Pomeroy 2017

Tony I thought the best 30/98 drivers started the event and then would find a nice pub just after the start. This winning technique worked very well on the Measham. There is probably a nice pub on the Hanger Straight. Pity the Pom is not at Donington before they knocked down the Redgate pub. Still, ...

Re: 2015 'Holly' Birkett 6-hour Relay

As ever the Birkett was a great event. Morgans For Fun lived up to our name. The constant rain somehow added to the excitement. It was a great pity to see Paul's car injured and a pity that cooling system problems struck two of our team. Jack was magnificent in the wet. Unlike in most races, with th...

Re: Limits of the track

"You cannot be serious. The car was not off". John McEnroe used to be just a tennis expert but after the Olympics he is now an expert in synchronised swimming, beach volleyball and motor racing. I think we will need a 'Hawkeye'.

Re: British Grand Prix

Would not like to predict a winner, but Ferrari do lok strong here There is no such thing as a free lunch. Even the best journos have to say the right thing after some corporate hospitality. Still if Morgan up their game from Le Mans to Grand Prix racing there will be a tipster backing them straigh...

Re: TYRE PRESSURE

I normally set my tyre pressures at about 23 all round. On a cold day I may put them up a little more. These settings are chosen with the intention of getting the tyres up to about 28 once warm. You have to drive hard enough to generate the heat in the tyre. If you are going a little more gently the...

Re: Local News Please.

"Hearts, Beds and Bucks" stories. This sounds more like 'kiss and tell' from Hollywood or from footballers' wives. Bob I am astounded that an esteemed journalist, even one who 'is not proud', could stoop so low. I have always thought you were more of the Woodward and Bernstein school of journalism. ...

Re: Kelvin Is OK

Thank you for your thoughts. Even without delving into the details of Laurence Pomeroy's complicated formula I was unable to prove this year that a Morgan Roadster is the ideal touring car. Mind you the way it aquaplaned means that it may make a good boat. Many thanks to Bob Bull, Graham Turner and ...
