Hats off to the HSCC, Masters Historic Racing and Motor Racing Legends teams for announcing their provisional historic race calendars for next season. We hope their optimism will turn out to be well-founded. We also understand that Motor Racing Legends are proposing to run a two race mini-series for for Ford GT40s to pre-66 specification.

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!
