Re: Fathers & Sons

I recall three generations of Morleys were in the same Bentley race at Silverstone a few years ago.

I must diarise that for ten years time :)

Re: My First Race (Morgan Challenge or other)

Bob – people pay to read my ramblings ?

I am not looking for any employment thank you – although to digress I did once go to a young lady’s party and only later find out that her father was one of the heroes of motor sport journalism.

I will e mail you

Re: Morgans & sports cars in competition

If you scroll down at the bottom there is a heading called ‘Thoroughbred Sports Cars’ which I think was from the days when the race day usually included both a Morgan race and a mixed sports car race under the heading of ‘Thoroughbred Sports Car’ Series and for a few years some drivers (particularly...

Re: My First Race (Morgan Challenge or other)

Good article John & Bob and thanks to Bob the mag is becoming the Morgan race magazine with his analysis of past winners, an article by Mark Shears, and a competition by Bob and Peter Cole. Also a reference to Jeremy Holden rolling his Mog at Donington – and driving home in it after. And an article ...

Re: who what where when

I have quite a few pics of 1974 relay and mainly London team including showing Rob Wells, Gyp & Jane Shaw, Malcolm Hayward and partner who had a Polish name (?), and a curly haired chap who maybe worked at Libra Motive holding a pit board which for some reason says ‘Herb’. On reflection maybe Terry ...

Re: My First Race (Morgan Challenge or other)

June 1969 in my immaculate new 4/4 I entered a Morgan Club sprint at Santa Pod with such ‘names’ as John Lindsay (Mr Mary), Rob Wells, Chas Smith. There were over 20 Morgans including three +8 cars which looks odd on entry list as they enter under Morgan 4/4 Club (as its name was then). Then Sep 197...

Re: who what where when

Kelvin – do you have a results sheet from that 1985 race as when I looked I couldn’t see Dave Sapp on it, whereas he is down for 1986. Which is why I think it is 1986

Re: who what where when

I recall someone showing me a photo that apparently they had shown to Peter Garland just before he went up the hill and rolled it. I will elaborate more in person. But there should be a ‘Role of Honour’ or a ‘Roll of Honour’ listing those who rolled their Mog and still drove it home Mr B from what I...

Re: who what where when

I didn’t look at the programs to see if there is a description of the cars. But surely Andy Garlick only raced MOG 615. There is a ‘short list’ of people who have rolled a Morgan and driven it home and I feel they should get a special trophy. I always tease Jeremy Holden when I see him as I remember...

Re: who what where when

Right I have delved into my archives. As I said (and happily repeat) in the 1985 Castle Combe Mog race I was 4th and Mary 5th. Jack 8th and Barry 10th. But no sign of Dave Sapp. So moving to 1986 there is a bigger grid and the winner was Grahame Bryant, followed by Jim Deacon, TMT (of the trophy), D...

Re: who what where when

Just (re) discovered this report and I like the account of the 1985 Morgan race where I was 4th and Mary was 5th . Those were the days. But no help with Jack’s photo. If that is me at the back I will have the results sheet in my archives https://www.morganchallenge.co.uk/Images/History/Morgans_at_Ca...

Re: who what where when

Why ? Only time you have been in the lead ? And why are you in John Milbank’s car – he is always no 15. If that is me I have the big wing mirror on so probably early 1980s but would need to delve into my archives. W reg came out 1980. Looks like about to be lapped as spectator looking to left. Looks...
