Talking of British winters, just to let you know, what with Covid there's not much going on here in the UK...check out the famous Paddock Hill bend at Brands Hatch at the moment.

Well, the UK winter is pretty much over, and Covid is nothing more than an irritation...so we thought it time to pull the old car out of the mothballs and wake him up with a shakedown at Goodwood.
Apart from the inevitable leak here and there and a small gearbox issue, consistent 1.45s was the pleasing result....I also rather like this shot taken on the day...

Compare this with the shot of Mac at the same spot back in 65

Hi Marc,
Great picture indeed, would be great if you manage to replicate the japanese number plate too!
About the 1.45 s : if I can remember well you were doing 2 minutes + on Good Wood in the beginning?
That is a big step
