Race car warehouse
Andrew Henson
Race Cars, a USA site similar to race cars direct
Piston Heads
Speed Scene (does that still exist?)
Len Selby (could have that very wrong)
Chequered Flag
All are good outlets.

A fab car and so beautifully presented. Seems everyone needs a bike engine thing nowadays though?

Oh so so tempted David, but I've already got way to many cars or so my Mrs tells me ;)

David

Is there any mileage in advertising it to Historic Sports Car Club members (website forum, classified ad in their magazine?) as I wonder if it could be eligible for what I would think of as 'Group 6' racing?

Your comments in the long ROPS thread about how Pilbeam as the constructor and the RAC MSA when the type was first run defined the car, if I remember correctly as type of 'racing car' - and perhaps therefore for circuits as well as the hills - made me think of this then (i.e. not solely boxed into a Hillclimb Sports Libre category or the later Hillclimb Supersports class).

When built? See if it could come under INV or perhaps SP4 class with the original engine (and bigger fuel tanks!) in the following HSCC series https://hscc.org.uk/championships/pre-80-endurance/ if so, more of a market for such a wonderful car and if it races like that or could be then it may also be of interest to USA historic racers.

Best wishes
Mike

" Pilbeam as the constructor and the RAC MSA when the type was first run defined the car, if I remember correctly as type of 'racing car' "

That was just the MSA showing their ignorance of what it was, and then refusing to accept they may have been wrong.
I am not convinced that any hillclimb car would survive the mileage of races without falling apart !

"Oh so so tempted David, but I've already got way to many cars or so my Mrs tells me ;)"

If you have that many she would never notice another ! - or maybe you could sell me one !

Before embarking on the season with my new co-driver - if anybody is interested in the car, let me know, as once we commit to this season, I am keeping it !
