Alternative Coupé register ;-)

Roy certainly brought it to the NEC “one” (as in I can’t remember which) year - he was actually double-booked, exhibiting on the Gordon Keeble stand the same year. I do recall a problem with the car - I think the AA were involved in Monday morning..

TYRES AGAIN

I had similar problems with giga tyres and one of their many internet names. Took them forever to reply - I think basically their stock control is woeful and if they can’t find them in 10 minutes, give up and say “they’re here, somewhere”. Gave up in the end and went elsewhere.

My only worry there is those that fit a 600hp LS3 V8 in an MG Midget with original brakes and suspension but if you're daft enough why should I worry...
I would suggest natural selection takes place, but it’s the marshalls and paramedics which get the mucky end of the stick mopping up the mess..

Sunshine roof

One from an MGB GT might be a better match but I’m not sure about the curvature.

Bogging at 4000 rpm

Have you tried Amazon? They do it in the UK at least and don’t seem to have any problems moving stuff across Europe.

It seems to also clear up any issues with numbers and “our” cars for some of the smaller runs (Scimitar Sabre or SST specifically)

Sprint & Hill Climb Regulation Proposed Changes - Blue Book Section S
