A bit like those Kenner rip cord cars from he 70's with one wheel in the middle, when you let go they went anywhere!

App. K provides dating periods up to 1993 (AFAIK) for cars competing in international historic events?
Haha - I think there is just a tad of sarcasm in saying that it's not relavent!
The implication was that they're all new!

Good to see some of you over the weekend!

Wish I could have been there to see it, but your drive in the Cooper Bristol was fabulous to watch, Will, Mike Hawthorn would have appreciated it.

Well done.

I'm guessing that it would have been a similar car that MH drove on public roads from Paris to Rouen since no transport was available for him to get to the next race. One of the wonderful anecdotes from Hawthorn's biography - Challenge me the race. Some of the stories from the likes of Nuvolari, Fangio, Moss and Hawthorn never fail to amaze me in their reading. If my memory serves MH drove the car following a road car down to Rouen before he signed for Ferrari and after an engine rebuild in Paris.
