Race Car Design of the 70s

Hello Morganeers,
I could not resist to pimp up my little 4/4 to look like a race car from the 70s. Now I am very glad that the car appears to be younger than i am ... ;-)
Technical modifications: Sports exhaust, K&N air filter, Panhard rod.
Especially the panhard rod makes a real big difference around corners.

Best regards from germany
beneviro aka ralf g.

VERY nice. Sadly I don’t think we are allowed racing numbers here in the UK

Very nice. we have to cover over any race numbers if used on the road. God knows why.

Great to see your car ....I wonder if there is a single completely original Morgan anywhere outside a museum smile

Guys ...there's no problem with racing numbers on the road in the UK ...

Up until recently the MSA (as it was then) had rules about race numbers being removed or covered for the trip home after official race meetings (for PR reasons and that was just a ruling you signed up to as part of your entry form) in the last couple of years that has been changed and they can stay ...... there's nothing in law says you can't decorate your car with numbers if you so choose.

I like your new race trim very much, especially this dark orange colour suits the 4/4 very well, Ralf. Would you say that the panhard rod allows the car still to drive with comfort or do you notice unpleasant lateral jerky movements when you drive over a bump? I don't care about the hardness of the suspension, I just don't like this sideways shaking, as I had it with a roadster with panhard rod. But with the Plus4 Supersport with panhard rod it was ok. So may be it is a question of geometry?
Oh, I see you still have those (in the wet) widowmaker tyres?

Thanks for the clarification. I didn't know that.
