I am informed, by Mr Hughes, that it actually is looked after in Bristol for the French owner. :D

Innes- thanks!

Hello - new member.
I live in N Michigan - had a '62 Lotus Seven back in the 80's and am thinking about an Elan now. I was at the SCCA Nationals in 1982 and took this picture - would like to pass it on for others to enjoy.
Looking forward to learning everything I can about the Elan here ---

Some forum members here, I think.

Edit: need to work out a way for images to appear full-size with new forum software.

Photos from the excellent Mike Hayward collection, well worth a look for 60's racing fans.

At Donington today we had wind, sun, rain and snow... there is a forum member in this photo, allegedly!

There were some new old cars out today; in the true Chapman spirit, lightness was added as the day progressed...

Will do! :D

These photos show what led to the incident immediately above; Healey man (about to be lapped) not looking in his mirrors or at blue flags, leaving the (much faster) yellow car nowhere to go.
Do we know this yellow car (Nick Fleming from Anstruther)? I don't think I've seen it before, both he and it go very well.
