One Door Morgan

I attended the Morgan Owners Club of Australia (MOCA) Diamond Muster in Bathurst at the weekend (60 years of the club). A mere 5,000 miles round trip from Perth WA. There was a super display of Morgans including this https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1904/44661266985_1d6912d565_z.jpg It's a ONE DOOR Mo...

Re: 1937 Morgan 4/4 back on the road after 47+ years

Message received from Colin with the above photos.....which I hope he doesn't mind sharing with you all. Hi John, I do have the car sort of back on the road although there are still a few things to do to finish it like getting the sidescreens fitted, the hood webbing done, having a tonneau and soft-...

Barrie "Whizzo" Williams RIP

I was shocked to learn that Barry "Whizzo" Williams had passed away yesterday when announced by Lord March at the Goodwood Revival. Series 1 folk maybe unaware that Barry drove Adrian Van Der Krofts Series 1 at the Silverstone Classic in 2009. They were competing in the the BRDC 500 pre war sports c...

2018 Goodwood SLR

Hi all I tuned into the Goodwood Revival live stream yesterday in time for the celebration of Goodwood past winners. I was tickled pink to see Keith and his SLR line up in exalted company. It made be wonder, how many times has a SLR won outright at Goodwood? https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3386/46128...

Re: Memories to Cherish

2006 was the 1st running of the TT won by Jack (in XOV) closely hounded by Billy in their 4/4 (0.12 behind) . There were 11 +4s racing and 2 4/4s. At the start, Jack took the lead followed closely by Keith (TOK), Matt Taylerson (VON) and yours truly (HPY). At the end, Matt had given Keith the slip t...

Adrian and XOV took the +4 handicap honours also finishing in 10th place but 16th on the road just behind John Emberson and Mike Bell. In Plateau 2 ...

Re: Le Mans Morgans Back to the Sarthe 2018

Great day and night racing from the three teams. Simon has done the maximum laps possible by a 1098cc Morgan and is leading the way on scratch and handicap. Simon was 8th on handicap after the first race and 11th during the night. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1765/41460914080_24cd58c599_c.jpg Than...

Re: LMC 2018

Day and night qually is now over. Leigh reports that his +4 Flat Rad (car 42) in Plateau 2 and all six +4s in Plateau 3 came through the day OK but Keith's TOK (car 28) was not classified (?) and Adrian's XOV (car 8) was unable to make the night session. XOV is reportedly undergoing an engine change...
