Re: 1966 Le Mans Morgan +4

Must see film doing the rounds - "Ford v Ferrari" with coverage of Hollywood's version of Le Mans in 1966. One can't help but wonder how a Morgan +4 SLR would have fared?? Very strong entry by Porsche with the 916 that year taking first 4 places in the 2.0 litre class. Shame that Eric Broadley, Lola...

Re: 1966 Le Mans Morgan +4

This '66 Morgan entry has intrigued me. I think Andy and co are correct, it was more likely to have been for a Morgan SLR, fitted with a TR engine and a Lawrence Tune cross flow head. But which one?

Qualifying saw Keith and Billy storm to 29th (quite apt really as racing with number 29) and 1st in class C2 and Simon and Mike Bell qualified 6th in class C2 and 59th overall. In the race, Keith and Billy c...

Re: Le Mans Morgans at Silverstone Classic 26-28 July 2019

Not a great weekend for the Series 1 mogs. This was Leigh's report:- "Big grid and much fuss for Bentley centenary so although based in old pits the race was held and pit stops in new pit area. Practice for me ok if a bit slow (although Peter hardly any better) not convinced about the engine that di...

To promote the car, Jem Marsh of Marcos cars wanted to get an entry to Le Mans, ...
