The Warwick is about the same pace as my Cortina, which is about the same pace as Brians Elite . . . . depending on weather/driver etc . . . . .

Noted Joe, thanks. I seem to remember your Cortina v Warwick battle at this very track some years back.

Well if Simon wants to drive his own TT you'll have to let me bring the Cortina and we can resume that battle!

Hi John,

Just having a bit of banter, appreciate why you are setting the criteria and no problem with that. Sounds like a great event and fully appreciate what you are doing here.

All being well I will be at Anglesey in a TVR that definitely would not be invited (not my Grantura please note)!

All the best and have a great race meeting.

Cheers

Hi Boys! haven't forgotten you and apologies for going awol! Thank-you Joe for e-mailing me and putting us in the loop. John the race sounds fantastic and if invited the Warwick will almost certainly be there! The Peerless has sat in the garage since coming back from Angouleme eons ago but Ian says he will do his best to get it sorted!
As you probably know he is racing a Ginetta G16 in Guards and spent most of last season sorting it so we have been in the workshop rather than on track. we are both looking forward to seeing you all.

I know you jest, Joe! If Simon wants to drive then what better incentive to get yours ready on time and get two on the grid. When was the last time two TTs shared grid, if ever?

I'm sure that you've posted the link before Joe, but worth another look

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9YU5Q--1tk0


I'm also trying to trace John Lesley, who used to, and may still, race a Reliant Sabre 6GT. I used to have a contact for him but now lost. Please PM me if you have any info.

Also Bob Binfield, Gilbern GT owner. I'm told you read this. Please PM me!

Indeed, Joe. Great footage though. The Warwick looked incredibly twitchy out of the corners!

I'm also now looking for Mike Youles who prepared a Rochdale Olympic Phase 2 for racing and ran it at Goodwood a few years back. I think he has since sold it on but if anyone has contact with Mike, or indeed the current owner, please PM me.

Thanks, Joe, I've been provided with a contact for Mike Youles so he may have Tony's contact details.

The Ogle would also be a brilliant addition so any chance of a contact? Not sure that Julien Draper would be the owner as he is a pro, so maybe was given the drive?

Ok, things are beginning to look really good for this. Thanks to Brian Arculus pointing me to JIGSAW racing, I've now had a chat with Mark Field there. He is very keen to bring the Triumph Spitfire Le Mans Coupe ADU 1B along and also the only Triumph Italia racing, since both cars will be there the day before with Equipe GTS.
