Neil Fisher in the ex-Andrew Actman Sebring Replica, the first kit that Brian Archer made. Neil has owned the car for about a year, and told John that he thoroughly enjoys driving it.
The only MG Midget based WSM was originally built in 1963, by Douglas Wilson Spratt for his son-in-law, Mike Lewis. It is now owned by Peter Kappeler. What a shape!
The front wheels of this Big Healey illustrate how tricky the conditions were during the morning session. Fortunately it dried out for the afternoon.

Dave Griffiths was checking out the pre-season updates on his pristine TR, run for him by CCK Historic. All went well.

ATTENTION ALL SPRITE RACERS
NEW 'UP TO 1 LITRE' CLASS IN THE CLASSIC & SPORTS CAR CLUB'S RACE SERIES

The "K Series" is a class essentially for cars that run to Appendix K rules, though HTP papers are not required for racing. Marcus Fellows has, for some time, been trying to encourage the introduction of a class in line with the historic theme of smaller engined cars as per the late 50s early 60s cars. This class will hopefully encourage many of the historic cars not currently catered for, meaning they will no longer have to race against the bigger engine cars up to 1600cc. It is, for now, a pilot project/experiment and will need support for sustainability, so we need to encourage as many people and cars to take an active part as possible. Please tell your friends/fellow competitors.
For more information contact Marcus by email or David Smithern at CSCC.
