Morgan SLR (Spritzel Lawrencetune Racing)

Seen at Silverstone Classic Weekend, when I took the photo I thought I would get home to find this was an exotic Italian, the #64 was not in the programme, however after referring to Anthony Pritchards Directory of Classic Prototypes and Grand Touring Cars I was surprised to find this is in fact one of four SLR Morgan's. Looking at the programme I am wondering if this is the car listed as #67 driven by John Emberson and and Bill Wykeham ?
Would be gratefull if someone could confirm this :-)

It is.
There are actually 3 Morgan SLRs
Silver- John Embersons's
Red- Simon Orebi-Gann's- also racing at Silverstone Classic
Green-Keith Alher's

the other car is based on Triumph mechanicals with similar bodywork so is not a Morgan.

I can't confirm any details of that particular car but there was a (red) SLR at Brands Hatch Morgans recently, didn't take any details but that accounts for 1/2 of the total production!

Thanks John & Steve. There is a photo in Anthony Pritchard's book of Gordon Spice driving a silver (unpainted aluminium) car at Brands in 1964 with slightly different nose intake and without the headlights shown in my photo.

Just to prove I love 'Fronts' as well.

I wonder if anyone has ever thought about making a fibreglass copy of the bodywork thinking

What and then sticking it on an aero chassis.

No, I think you'd find it too large.

It could be modified but my guess is that even then, it would throw off the proportions.

I'm just surprised that no one has made a kit to turn a classic Morgan into an SLR-look.
