Newsflash 16/5/2020


I trust you are all well during these interesting times and are well advanced with the many and varied projects that you now have time to do whilst waiting for the racing season to get started again.  I have taken the opportunity to do a refresh on the engine in the Rennma , and something even more dramatic, I decided to do a complete rebuild on my 1973 Morgan 4/4 that has been a part of the family since 1984.  She was looking very tired, particularly the paintwork.  It is now down to the bare chassis and today I sanded, rubbed, gouged and ground myself to a standstill. 

I have been working from home (WFH, as against WFO) (I work for Defence, (Navy) and everything has an acronym)  3 days a week for some time now – which has been handy, because the shed is so close and I can nick down there for some therapy every couple of hours.  It does have its drawbacks though.  You will notice there is a letter missing on the name of my Junior in the above paragraph.  Well, I managed to spill a very fine glass of McLaren Vale shiraz across the keyboard the other night and now that letter that is missing is one of several that doesn’t work. 

Have you been missing the racing action?  I certainly have and so have the F1 boys.  They’ve created their own action by playing musical seats early this year.  It’s a pity Danny Ric missed out on the red suit, but never mind.

I have been in touch with the HRCC, the organisers of Morgan Park, and they are hopeful that their July meeting will go ahead.  At least at this stage it hasn’t been cancelled.

In the meantime, Don Edwards has decided to part company with his very pretty 1960 Cooper T52, the details of which are below.

Hope to see you all soon, and stay healthy,


Noel Bryen.
