I hope BHP continues - it really should, for the reasons others have already stated. BHP has been a great reference and place for discussion over the years. At least today I can say I am a [small] contributor rather than more frequently simply a browser.

Hello Mary and all the other Racers out there.
I am one of the silent many, but mainly because I don't do the circuits. As some may be aware I have been competing in hillclimbs and sprints for many years. I am a regular viewer of the site and it would be a great shame if it stopped. Seeing this as an invite, I may start posting.

I do wonder where morgan competitors (race & speed) exchange information/sales as this site doesn't seem as active as I am sure the competitors are. Is there another "secret" forum / Facebook page where you exchange information and sell bits to each other?

A couple of thoughts about the site:
You have a 4 cylinder area, but not one for 6 & 8 - worth adding?
To widen appeal, how about inviting the speed community, and creating a tab for them?
I may post a question on How Do I? asking about what is required to start circuit racing as the last post was Oct 2018.

I hope Donnington goes well, I'm out at Shelsley (hopefully) on the 25th July.

Regards
Mike

This is an excellent forum for learned and erudite debates. It allows more in depth discussion than Facebook. It would be good if were to be used more by competitors. Long may it continue.

Gentlemen, your comments are all very welcome and very positive. I think it would keep the forum alive if more people posted now and then just to keep it current and relevant so that others are not shy about posting.

I am very hopeful that I now have an excellent candidate to take it on from Chris Acklam who has so kindly continued to administer it despite no longer having a Morgan.

Any suggestions about the format and topics are very welcome.

The point that Mike Meredith makes about the Speed series is valid because although there is a private section for speed members I am sure there is a wider community who would enjoy the opportunity to discuss and comment more general issues.

Dear Ladies & Gentlemen,

I agree with Mary for 100%. If we all do a little bit more the BHP website will give us all a lot of pleasure. On top of that I know that my friend Andy Downes has a good idea, but's up to him to launch it!

Take care,

Machiel.

Surely the request for information about the Willhire is an ideal opportunity for an interesting and informative discussion for the anoraks to display their expertise?
