Some typical Tour Auto scenes from this year's event from our friend Xavier who competed in the regularity section in the light ivory 1968 911L we supplied to him a couple of years ago. The engine has since been upgraded to S spec. The car is not unlike the orange 1968 911L we have in stock at present - do get in touch if the idea appeals.

We have had our eye on these lovely lightweight sports bikes from the 1960s for some time and have acquired a well-restored original UK example, complete with matching numbers and original registration number and V5. Easy to kick over and ride, they are just the thing for a blast along country lanes and B-roads. They are also period-correct paddock kit for Goodwood!

This is a special photograph for several reasons. It looks to have been taken at the late-March Bank Holiday Wills Trophy meeting at Silverstone in 1967 or, possibly, the Ovaltine meeting at the same circuit in April. The car is the celebrated polo red RHD early 911 GVB 911D – looking relatively standard and fresh from a factory repair after a successful, if damaging, rally cross debut. AFN ran the car in the British Saloon Car Championship – the FIA had recently ruled that the ...

Some years ago, we raced a couple of early 911s with the registrations 5 KAT and BOY 7D. The cars have gone but, without wishing to give the plot away, we have retained the numbers. The clever lads at Sports Purpose run the registration 2 LTR on a car in the 2-Litre Cup. There is a strong historical precedent for putting something suitably catchy on a racecar. It was relatively common in UK club racing in the 1950s and 1960s. A leading practitioner was Dickie Stoop, the accomplished ...
