rbs should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The 2nd answer is correct, they were both taken at Whilton Mill Kart circuit. I do not think I have one of you on the 2018 Flying Scotsman, the only one I have seen.

1936 Singer Le Mans one and half litre 6 cylinder
They were raced but the main claim to fame were trials
Think they are extremely good road cars but to heavy for racing.
We may have a look at possibility next year
Until then itís my golf club transport!

Been asked by a couple of people what are the cars shown in posts 35/36 by Bob on my behalf

Here we go
Talbot GO 52 1931 Works Car at Le Mans Classic
It’s won overall three times and nine one hour heats
Won Alpine Rally and many other events including Pre War Sports at Silverstone Classic

Tony Gaze 2 litre supercharged Alta 1937 We won 28 international races and beat hill record at Prescott with a very pedestrian guest driver!

Talbot BGH 21 1934 works car. I have owned it for 23 years and most original of BGH cars Raced in period and won Alpine Trial raced at Brooklands and South African GP
It’s taken part in all the Le Mans Classics, Mille Miglia ,won Flying Scotsman,Tour Britannia and host of other events

Side view is BGH 21 on its way to winning Flying Scotsman

Alta KMP 977 2 litre 1939 unique non supercharged car Won Pre War Sports at Spa and the most surprising of all the Flying Scotsman

Singer CXY56. 1936 One and half litre six cylinder
Deciding if we should race this car. Doubtful!

Lea Francais 1928 Hyper S one and half litre supercharged it’s the original 1928 works car driven by Willy Greens dad in TT and Irish GP
We should be racing this year . It will be interesting as may be quick for a Pre 30 car

That’s the competition side of Pre War fleet

Put in a picture of me driving Michael Birch’s 1934 with him as navigator
He won first heat at Le Mans Classic and second overall
I have owned the car on six separate occasions and May be seventh as he is having GO52 from me and I am taking JJ93 unless someone else wants it!!
You only get a works Talbot if you pass the suitable owner test.

John, out of interest, and a long shot, but is that the Alta that Gaze brought to and used in Australia post WW2?

Thatís the one EJJ

It was also used by Gaze to map out the Goodwood circuit
There is a snippet on the nett of the car doing the Rob Roy hillclimb.
We could never work out the Gaze car colour as there were many layers when we restored it.We guessed RAF blue as that was one of layers and after finding the film found we guessed correctly
The car went to an Italian and I now understand itís been moved on.
Pity as they are very special but need people to understand them before messing with engine and general set up.
Never known one of these old restorers that own up to the lack of knowledge and understanding! Some are brilliant at creating history
Mine are mostly with Gareth Burnett but the Leaf is being taken by both Gareth and Blakeney Motorsport.As far as I am concerned that set up worked and I did spend lots of money early on with these cars with other people.
As they say all education usually cost lots of dosh!
