The competition number at BDC in 1978 would help a lot.

Hallo Mary,

Eddie singleton promised me to come back as soon as possible, but after Wednesday. He has the photos of that event.

Let's see if this brings more light in the historical darkness.

Thanks for your help,

Machiel.

Hello Eddie, Machiel has shown me the pictures - Thank You.

It transpires that the car was 'spectating' at BDC, Curborough etc. so perhaps an interested sporting owner rather than a competitior.

Good morning Andy,
Pleased to note you received the pictures of the car via Macheil. Very much in road going trim when I photographed it. I would be interested to know if you have any idea of the date/year when the car was photographed with its hardtop/spotlights/mirrors etc and GB sticker !!
By the way, I live in the wonderful county of Lancashire.
Cheers, Eddie.

I am trying to track down a very early TR2 engine number X540 once fitted to a 1953/4 Plus 4 but removed at some point early in its life before the car was exported to Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe).

Does anyone have any info on the engine or know where it might be now?

I had a very enjoyable meal with Phil Brown in a very hot Perth W.A. As the beer and wine flowed the conversation turned to Hugh Braithwaite's article in Miscellany December 2019 - "Racing Holiday 1962". Hugh was racing his +4 5266 MM at Spa but crashed it. Despite this he was classified 13th and last! Great article BTW.

Does anyone know what became of the car, I think Mary may know, and Phil said something about it but the drink overpowered me!!

cheers

Hallo John

Good to hear from you! Well, the car is in Germany. Was at Assen in 2012 during the celebration of 40 years MSCC holland. The current owner is Klaus Weiss.

Hope this was a help,

Machiel Kalf.
