MGCC, Snetterton, 11th/12th Sept, 2021

I can't see that anyone has started a thread on the forum for this meeting (apologies if I missed it) but FISCAR had a handful of cars in the Equipe Pre63/50s race and I used this as an excuse to book a few days away in East Anglia with my partner, Jackie, afterwards. Weather turned out to be surprisingly mild and rain free and I took some snaps of several of the races. I'll start with a few Morgans from various races for Bob.

The Equipe Pre63/50s grid was both interesting and eclectic:-

John thanks for the Morgan pictures, if i wanted to use any for publication, would that be alright with you? Naturally they would be credited to you (I am not taking the blame)

i see a much better quality of image in you recent snaps, have you upgraded your equipment or just stopped drinking?

Once I have sorted my plumbing problems I may get to see you at some Fiscar event in 2022.

Cheers,

Bob.
