David- I don't know what to say, that is amazing to hear! (Welcome to the forum by the way.)

Would it be possible at some pont for you to send me a PM with some info- I would love to see the car sometime.

Meanwhile, just scanned these extremely poor and small photos to show VC6788 when in Dad's tenure.

Regards, Mike

Your dad's Riley

Hi Mike,

You say you are amazed to hear that your dad's Riley has survived; just imagine how I feel having just looked at the two, I guess pre-war, photographs of the car. I have spent years in odd moments researching the Brooklands, but have only got back as far as 1957.
So you can see, I was damn near reduced to tears........

Oh, and thanks for the welcome!
David

David, I am fairly sure the photos are pre-war, and would guess taken somewhere around Loughborough. It is a great personal delight to me to hear that the car still exists, and now that we have established contact hopefully we can learn something relevant from each other!

Tears can be good sometimes.

I know what. I know where, but I have a swag of pics where I can't fix the 'when' - usually at Donington! If anyone can pinpoint the date, It will help date other pics. A race programme would be even better if anyone can sell, scan or post!



Other pics I have show the Strand Glass Lotus Elite with three different race numbers but I can't date any of those accurately either.

Please send a PM if you can assist.

Something from the archives, just out of interest. Who, where and when pretty easy I suspect, but why the thumb in air?

Can you please date these for me?

I am scanning 100's, nay, 1,000s of images from negative film and slides. Although I have a very comprehensive pile of race programmes, there were occasions when I didn't get one. These are from the 1980s with one at Cadwell - possibly an NSCC meeting which also included pre-57 saloons and the others at Donington.

Scans of the relevant programme pages would be appreciated. just send a PM and I'll pass on my email address.

That could be tricky. Might move it to one of our main historic forums.
