Re: +8 Group 4: fotos?

Well done Franz,

That is good news and thanks for letting us all know.

We look forward to you bringing the car to the UK for a race when that is possible so we can all see the result of your hard work - and cheque book!

Cheers,

Re: +8 Group 4: fotos?

Another thought...

Ted Walker at Ferret Fotographics.

He has a fantastic archive of racing photographs.

And he is a Morgan enthusiast too.

He has found some great photos of my car competing in the 1950's in some quite obscure competitions...!

Cheers

Re: +8 Group 4: fotos?

Well done with the sleuthing Bob. Just a thought... Did Miscellany or any of the contemporary weekly motor magazines (such as Autosport, Motoring News etc) ever photograph the Morgan hopefully under the bonnet...? Would Bruce remember if one of the motor mags ever did a 'piece' on the car? It was af...

Re: +8 Group 4: fotos?

Yes I was going to say exactly the same thing to Franz-Xaver Mary!

Especially as Bruce put a post up on For Sale and Wanted about my old engine very recently!

Re: Vnuk law

Hi Mary and Machiel, This topic reared its ugly head again at the Competition Day at the Bentley Drivers Club the other week. It was not given a great deal of time as we were led to believe that the powers that be in UK Motorsport had already received an exemption. However there was no discussion re...

Re: Bentley Win Bathurst 12 hour 2020

Many thanks for letting us all know John.

A great result for Bentley and I hope they let everyone know about it - even if (no surprise) the race cars are very different to what you can buy in the showroom.

Cheers

Hi John,

Hope you and yours are all keeping well and not getting too hot...?!

You won't be surprised to learn that Keith and TOK are also in.

Re: 1966 Le Mans Morgan +4

Like Andy and I am sure John, I too would be intrigued to know the answer - if there is one. Looking at the period photo taken at the Nurburgring of the Deep Sanderson 301 about to be passed by the Ferrari 250 SWB is that not the most ugliest of little cars being overtaken by possibly one of the mos...

Re: Spotted at the Chelsea Flower Show...

Wonderful. Do go to the RHS link too. There are some lovely photos of both the garden and the three wheeler.

The trouble they go to to construct these fantastic gardens in such a short space of time...
