CCK Historic were with it at Goodwood at some point and it was sold via the web- http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C576753

There are also pics on the web of a red MGB Coune Berlinette with numbers on the side, but don't think from UK.

BTW John, if you decide to hold a race at Snetterton for pre war / vintage cars, will it be 'The Norwich Straight Cup' in honour of the original layout?
Sorry Mike, missed this one; thanks for info.

Very interesting final paragraph Mike, since Sam Stretton and I have been mulling over a race or two for prewar and very early postwar cars of a certain type for the last couple of years. I even had a title for the series which I won't divulge here. Problem is finding the time and a club/circuit prepared to take the risk of offering a grid. Then there is getting enough cars to commit - all the usual stuff. However, if one were ever to take place at Snetterton, your race title is perfect, although I'm bound to say that Snetterton circuit did not exist until about 1953, I think.

Correct of course John. It was Snetterton Heath Airbase before that. Previously the only racing in the area was at Fersfield, bit further south.

Due to it being alongside the old A11, I always used to stare out of the car windows as a youngster at the Norwich Straight in case there was a racing car or motorbike on track. (On the odd occasion the family ventured that far south! )

As you will all have noted, Claire has sadly had to pull the plug on the 360. It follows therefore that our support race cannot happen. However, I think that the concept of the fastback race was entirely right and don't want it to die. Whilst another opportunity is unlikely to present itself this year, I will be looking to run it with someone next year.

I am truly sorry I really am, I tried right up until less than an hour ago to continue "as planned" but unfortunately it was not to be. I think this race has great potential and I will support it in whatever way I can in the future

Thanks
Claire

Rather unexpectedly, Richard Culverhouse has agreed to run this race at his Classic and Modern event at Snetterton on 22nd September. I realise this is at very short notice but I hope that it can regenerate some of the enthusiasm for this race that manifested itself when originally put forward.

I will endeavour to contact as many of those who showed interest in the coming couple of weeks but please don't wait for that if you are interested as Richard has already submitted the SRs.

At the same meeting I'm also running the Archie Scott Brown race for pre 1960 sports and sports racing cars; particularly important this year as it is the 60th anniversary of this legendary driver's death at Spa. Gary Pearson has agreed to enter his Lister Jaguar so I'm hoping that others may follow his lead.

This meeting should have a pretty strong historic flavour for as well as the above two races, FISCAR is also running a race. I'm not quite sure how I got in such a pickle at a time when I'm trying move houses. As a result, I've stepped down as Chairman (after 7 years) of FISCAR in favour of 'Bentley Belle' Gillian Carr but remain heavily involved.

Anyway, we and Richard could do with all the support we can get for this meeting, so please give it some consideration.

I’ve got it down as Richard Culverhouse ‘Motorsport UK’.......

Unfortunately John I’ve committed to HSCC Brands ‘Escort 50th’ races that weekend, otherwise would have liked to race at Snetterton. It is a lot closer.....

Sorry, Peter, too much stuff in my head at the moment. It's the Classic and Modern Sportscar Club that Richard formed earlier in the year. His first meeting at Mallory some weeks back was very successful.
