Endurance Racing

Congratulations to Chris Phillips and Rick Bourne who came 6th in XOV in the BPR Historic GT Endurance Race at Silverstone the Saturday before last.

In the GT race on the Sunday the factory car was damaged by a Porsche on the first lap and had to retire with broken suspension. A great shame as it had been going really well in practice and qualifying.

"As is usual with Morgan rebuilds, mine is taking longer than anticipated so it is unlikely that you will see my high cowl Plus 4 in competition this year.

When finished, it will be running in Class C where I expect to give my old car (the Fiat engined +4 now run by Stephen Lockett) a good view of a TR engine's exhaust pipe!"
