As far as I can work out, this was at a MG Car Club meeting over the weekend of 6th/7th October 2007. Neither Mike or I finished the first race on Saturday (nor did my wife who was racing the Elite at that time) but I did manage third overall on the Sunday.

That car was a bundle of fun to drive, a bit of a handful but I always finished a race with a smile on my face.

Any Lotus or Alfa will be just fine. And a '64 Mustang please.

Anyone remember 'Motor Racing' magazine, a monthly from (I think) the late sixties. Always had a centre-fold calendar for the month featuring a scantily-clad female, & there may have been a racing car somewhere in the background...

That was (virtually) my last race in an MG Midget. The relay race. Had an absolute hoot.
