Re: 1951 Silverstone relay race

The year is certainly not 1951, it is 1952, when you look at the names on the pits you can see Aston-Butterworth, Cooper-Alta. these were not around in 51, but were in 52 when Formula 1 became Formula 2.the names would have been left over from the Grand Prix. I was there!

Re: Brakehorsepower forum

I would certainly miss being able to post puerile nonsense somewhere, and this seems as good a place as any to do that. I also find it useful for snippets of information such as mentioned earlier the BDC meeting. I don't even mind the occasional insult from Jack. :lol: It can also provide a place to...

I was hoping one of he plutocrats among the Challenge fraternity might want a 'Personal Photographer' along side their 'Personal Trainer', 'Driver Coach', and Physio.

Mike Bell

I am sure many here will be saddened to hear that Mike Bell has died recently. Mike had been suffering from cancer, which was not diagnosed until a late stage. A tribute site has been set up on the Ten/Tenths motor sport forum (Tributes) where there are many messages from a multitude of friends and ...

Re: 1985 Morgan Challenge

Diligence brings it's own reward, I have tracked down all of the results from 1985, and can produce a history of the 1985 season, however, I want it to be more than a list of events. I would therefore truly appreciate as many personal anecdotes, memories, stories, etc to make it come alive. No matte...

Re: 1985 Morgan Challenge

Please do Mary, I have to have submitted the article by the 15th, and will need a day or so to get it all together.
It is surprising how little info is available in the public domain.

Thanks,

Re: 1985 Morgan Challenge

If anyone has pictures from the time I could use, they too would be very useful, and credited as appropriate.
Bob.

NB; Before anyone responds. NO I was not taking pictures at that time.
