Here is an early curborough 

a film my dad made 1959 after he had sold his cooper jap 1220cc supercharged twin.

Judging by the cars parked around thats 1969 not 59 I would have thought.

Good day at curborough fine and dry but damn cold. 

Good turn out for the club championship. TR3a. TR4. TR4a. TR6. TR7 of the v8 variety. Dolly sprint. Spitfire. Various numbers of each in various states of tune. 

Nice to see Mr Boyd visiting. Well,  race car support really for the drivers that have “staff” to deliver their cars to the venue :ph34r:

many driving to the event in their competing cars. 

Martin Payne deserves an award for the coldest drive. Setting off from home in the frozen darkness in his open TR6. I don’t think he thawed out all day before driving home after the competition. 

Others are trying to set a trend of having the engine block the same colour as the car.

ps

see that simple small green tent? - - it took 2 of us to wrestle it back into its bag having resorted to reading the instructions ....:wacko:

Was great to be there and lovely to chat to you Hamish along with the other boys!

It was rather chilly to be fair but what a cracking turn out of Triumphs!

Good to see you at the event Tom  

looking after your customers in a first class way delivering a car to the event ( not mine I’m afraid  - it would be in another class if it had TRE power !!!)

 

it was soooo cold the track never warmed up  

Here are a few of my runs. 

Practice 1

a very cautious first run of the year on a very cold green track  

Run 1 

 

Run 2

and personal best time 75.09 despite misfire over the line

Very nice H. Some impressive runs there.

I'm guessing you're not running 'stock' at present? (My '59 3A certainly doesn't sound like that!). One assumes you've a few funky doodads lurking beneath the exterior! :P

Sound over substance really. 

Its got a new stainless exhaust. And a remote microphone next to the tail pipe.

its a measured 116hp at the flywheel that’s all.

it also still has the steering box, with some 185 x 15 tyres  

lots of fun.

That's encouraging. Currently running the 3A completely stock, with a recent Dyno tweaking achieving about 100hp. But would be V interested to do a track day. Looks, and sounds great fun.
