Well it kinda comes into HRT as it's a HSCC championship. One heck of a pace lap when the SC is flat out and all I could see of the pole sitting car was his windscreen and roof. Definitely staying within five car lengths.

Yeah, a tad too close I'd say, Ian.

Like the Union Flag on the Healey Headlamps, Dougie

Back to the VSCC Spring Start and the superb grid of Pre and Post war Frazer Nashes put together by Patrick Blakeney-Edwards and Annabel Jones. Brilliant effort. Adam Smith's Pre war Super Sports and Martin Hunt's Le Mans Replica.

It features the Nash Healey that finished 3rd at Le Mans in 1952. The car is now owned by Josť M. Fernandez who very kindly entered it in the Tom Cole Trophy Race for Sam Stretton to drive. It hadn't been seen racing in the UK since 1951, and never before in its open 1952 form. A truly wonderful piece of history, it's outing generated even more enthusiasm from Josť to get it absolutely right so it is now having a lot of period correct detailing work undertaken and with any luck, we may see it out again in the latter half of next season.

In this photo Sam is seen talking to Paul Woolmer of Woolmer Classic Restoration (our main FISCAR sponsor providing our base and hospitality unit at our events). Behind is the lovely Sunbeam Alpine Le Mans of Keith Hampson which some of you may recall was later stolen but subsequently recovered intact. Every picture tells a story and this one tells several. I will dig out some more, but as I say, if anyone else wants to pick some of their favourite 2016 images, please do so.

Incidentally, I accept that some may have already seen this photo before but maybe not the story attached to it.
John -

Here's a nice historic photo of the same Hash Healey.

Thanks, Dougie. The car spent a long time in the States after its Le Mans adventure and many have thought that it was always the pale metallic blue that it now is, but others think that at Le Mans it was actually a pale green - colour photos of the time are both incredibly rare and subject to chemical changes which have still not resolved that one.

Rob Manson brought a couple of Specials from the States over to the UK to participate in a few races, hopefully a prelude to a bigger raid from a batch of these cars in a future season and here he is in the Baldwin Mercury Special in the Archie Scott Brown Trophy at HSCC, Snetterton meeting in early June. The second photo is of Paul Griffin's superb ex Archie Scott Brown Connaught ALSR in the same race.

ID:	48838John, I found this picture of a model of the 1950 Le Mans Nash Healey, presumably the maker would have done his research on detail, and colour.
