Couldn't resist as the old blocking plate was a misshaped, unfinished steel plate without any soul. So using a friend's CNC I produced this,,,

Nice touch.

I didn't see you at the Dixon Car Show last Sunday even though you were registered. I was looking forward to seeing your 26R.

It's just not far enough along, could have been a static display but that meant dragging it off and back on the flat bed transporter. Currently battling with a Brian Hart head and waiting for some parts from TTR, still some months off.

The funny part was that as they announced the awards for the Lotus category, they announced your name in second place. I then wondered how I had missed you and your car. But, they quickly corrected themselves.

BTW, I was fortunate to win first place. Pretty stiff competition including Mike Ostroff's Elte. I am sure one of your cars would have probably been in the running.
