Re: Coro

I suspect that the Corona Virus is more scared of Peter R than he is of he virus itself. Being confined to barracks is not too different to my normal life, as a retired gentleman, I have little reason to gad about under normal circumstances, let alone during an official lockdown. Writing for MOG giv...

Re: Coro

I find it quite surprising what some of the drivers have been up to, since the Challenge was banned. I found this on the internet, can't imagine where it came from. :lol: https://www.jibjab.com/view/make/chicken_dance_easter/019fa8ea-7b9b-4eaa-8113-1bdffcb3db83?utm_campaign=2020_04_03_Chicken_Dance_...

You see many years ago I invested a sum of money in a hair cutting class for my lovely wife, Judith, this has paid handsome dividends over the years, and now, of course, still finds some small use on an annual basis. The foregoing may explain my appearance at certain events and functions.

Franz,
I found these in my collection, not much help with the FIA, but are part of the car's history.

Re: Coro

In view of the current situation it might be wise to keep on the right side (metaphorically) of our beloved Phill. I for one always thought him a jolly good fella, and a very fine driver.

Are you aware of the FIA historic database?

There is this limited info about the homologated Morgan.

Two photos found on Google, the second is listed as 1970 Morgan V8 FIA, and credits Richard Thorne racing. I presume that the engine must belong to Bruce's car if it was the only FIA registered Morgan.

Hope it helps

Re: +8 Group 4: fotos?

Motor Sport magazine may well be able to help, also Sutton Images. or Geoff Bloxham, would probably have been at those events. They are professional photographers, and would of course charge. If you need help contacting them let me know. Bob https://jeffbloxham.com/ https://nps.nikonimaging.com/memb...
