I saw this car at Racetorations a few years back, it was in the queue for restoring.

Forgive my ignorance but that seems like a lot of money. Can someone enlighten me as to why it’s so much? JJC

Ugly, innit? I turned it down in 1979 for £395 when it belonged to Andrew Ledingham…..its running was as rough as a bear's bum...….

Why so much loot? Well, it was a famous Goodwood entrant around 1959/60 in Bill's hands and won the Motorsport  Brooklands memorial trophy series....I think, without looking it up,  two years in a row.....winning a number of marque sports car races at Goodwood and elsewhere....I researched its history for Darrryl a few years back and it has certainly been well rebuilt recently, but 195k....? More than somewhat optimistic I'd say, especially in today's bloody awful market (ask any dealer.....)…..still, should be a Goodwood entry "golden ticket" as they say......Bill P.

I spent a day with Darryl putting together the feature article for this car which appeared in TR Action 294, November 2016, Page 41. 

Can't believe it's that long ago already!

That should be true of many TR2s and TR3s. The pictures in Autosport show Goodwood full of clubman racers back in the day JJC
