  1. Good luck Dave. Looking at the entry list I reckon you should be good for 4th o/a! Mike
  2. Interesting race 1 of the Kastner cup. 3 very evenly matched TR's at the front. Unfortunately Sam Halkias TR6 was taken out by the number 11 TR8. Race 2 should be on live about 8 pm our time this evening. Mike
  3. My money is on previous winner Sam Halkias in the Paul Newman tribute TR6. Mike Hughes
  4. 8th March 1986 Silverstone Round 1 Cox & Buckles TR Register Race Championship. Good start from Geoff Mansfield 64 and Pete Cox 61. Pole man Reg Woodcock, who had won the championship the previous year, falls back momentarily to the 2nd row alongside Steve Hall 30 and Mike Walker 69. Reg went on to win comfortably from Pete Cox who was well clear of Steve Hall who finished 3rd. Geoff Mansfield retired and car 51 is the TR5 of Jeff Pumford who finished 10th and last. This is the car that went on to win the championship in 1995 in the hands of Joe Henderson. It also won the 50th T
  5. Out on my bike early this morning and met 2 911s, 2 Minis, Lotus Sunbeam Talbot and an Astra GTE near Cholmondeley Castle. Mike
  6. Correction The race is live on the Goodwood website at 10.20 Saturday not Sunday. Mike
  7. Josh Files has just qualified his father Keiths TR4 in pole position for Saturdays Fordwater Trophy race at the Goodwood Revival. A fantastic drive by Josh saw him steadily moving up the timings and setting his pole time on the last lap. Keiths car is one of the Kas Kastner prepared works TR4's that won their class at the 1963 Sebring 12 hrs. Keiths car finished second in class driven by the American driver team of Charlie Gates, Ed Diehl and Bob Cole. First in class was the British pairing of Peter Bolton and Mike Rothschild. Keith purchased the car in the USA several years ago and
  8. No Jon, Dave using the wheels and tyres off my old race car and Robs borrowing the drive shafts! I will be there if the weather looks OK. If so I will be ringing someone for a ticket when I get to the circuit. Mike
  9. Rob Cowing and Dave Bailey are entered as a 2 car/2 driver team. Mike
  10. I will be there Dave, weather permitting, as parts from my old TR5 will be appearing on at least 2 cars that I know of! Mike
  11. I was talking to Graham at the Donington Historic Festival. The yellow peril is now owned by Alan Price whose TR7V8 race car was destroyed by fire in a race at Silverstone about 3 years ago. Graham is racing the car until Alan gets his confidence back.. Mike
  12. Brilliant drive by Martyn Adams in the TR7V8 finishing 2nd o/a in the Future Classics race and matching the lap times of the race winning Porsche in the closing stages. Former TR racers Tony Blake and Paul Dingle, both in Porsches also in the top 6. Mike Cowing appearing after a 10 year lay off in his TR7V8 also went well with plenty more to come I am sure. Mike
  13. Martyn Adams is entered in his rapid TR7V8 in the Future Classics race. I saw him this afternoon on the A500 near Nantwich on his way to the circuit. I will be there but only spectating having sold my TR5 to Dave Bailey last year. Mike
  14. Mick Kermit is now owned and raced by Chris Edwards but when Simon Watson sold the car to Chris he retained the reg. no. 1235 KY which now adorns the beautiful TR4 SLR replica that TR Enterprises built for Brian White who has already had very good results with the car including a 2nd and 3rd overall in the Equipe GTS races at Brands Hatch last weekend and an excellent result in its first race at Spa last year. Mike
  15. It was quick Jon but not very reliable if I remember correctly! Mike
