Award for commitment surely goes to Roy Davis, driver of Triumph 2000 pictured above, which he shipped from Australia for motorsport tour of UK, as he had done previously in 2018.
Thanks for taking the time to post your pictures Malcolm, they give a great flavour of the meeting. I remember Roy Davis racing a Triumph GT6 in the Special Saloons/Modsports races at the CSCC meeting at Thruxton in 2018.

Me too - if memory serves, both Elf and Hornet had single carb A series - 998 I think ? The next size up , however , the 1100/ 1300 ADO 16 was different. My first car a 1969 Riley Kestrel , had a twin SU 1275cc engine (essentially a detuned Cooper S ) . And whilst I thought the Wolseley 1300 had the more sedate single SU engine, a quick google suggests it too had the twin SU 70 bhp engine .

Derwent has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!

That was true of the Farina badged engineered cars but the Mini ones had the same engine. Just slightly different interiors.

Thanks. I'm not arguing, just clarifying but I'm sure it was only thus with the Elf/Hornet. The Riley ADO16 (1100/1300's) had twin carb engines and of course the Morris Minor based Wolseley 1500 ran a single carb but the Riley 1.5 ran twins.
(Sorry, as I said in my last post, I really need to get a life!)
