Singer Gazelle with a Jack Brabham Sunbeam Alpine engine and a Hobbs Mechamatic gearbox at Paddock Bend Brands Hatch.

This was my first car and I competed in over 100 events in her without a single problem - apart from keeping her on the track at times!

Marilyn in the background, she won the Ladies award that day and had to break off feeding baby Suzanne in the paddock to collect it!

Mallock U2 with Hobbs Mechamatic gearbox. Great fun to drive but never ever worked well with oil surge in the hydraulic gearbox giving it a mind of its own, often in the middle of a corner - hairy! 

Silva, left hand drive so I could change gear with right hand and work a vacuum clutch.

Achieved Fastest Time of the Day at the Ocean Village Marina in Southampton.

Built by Ron Douglas  - a Mid engine Ford Escort, fabulous side ways car but so unreliable.

An interested visitor who told me he once had an MGC. We discussed its ability to get round corners!
