With Britain recovering from World War II, Morgan introduced the new Morgan +4 sports car. Sales were very limited not helped by the scarcity of steel supplies. The Morgan factory needed to sell in the global market and there was no better place to give visibility to the brand than the Le Mans 24 Hour race. Their attempt in 1952 didn’t go well!

Morgan’s next entry to the greatest sports car race in the world had to wait another nine years, when the baton was picked up by privateers Messrs Lawrence and Shepherd-Barron. That didn’t go well either! Then the following year, Morgan replicated the success of the pre war years – but this time they went one better and famously won their class.

Now the story is being told in full, the disasters and the triumphs all in Morgan +4s. This book tells the story of Morgan’s adventures at Le Mans in 1952, at Monza and Le Mans in 1961 and at Le Mans in 1962. It includes extensive biographies of the lesser known Morgan competitors - but what they achieved outside of motor racing was scarcely believable. Numerous rare black and white and colour photographs have been used drawn from private collections, many of which have never appeared in print before.

From the author of Morgan International Adventure, this sequel completes Morgan’s adventures on the world stage when amateurs could take on, and sometimes beat, the best drivers in the world in the best sports cars. This 270 page high quality, hardback book is printed on gloss paper in colour.

“Morgan International Adventure II” is available now as a first edition limited to just 250 copies. Priced at £36.00 plus P&P, the book can only be ordered from

Wonderful Mog and good for you on making it happen rather than relying on others. Congratulations.

I will be at Silverstone for the BDC this weekend and at MOG16 a couple of weeks later armed with books. Please come and see me and avoid those postage and packing charges. You should find me at Techniques' marquee.

Good to meet everyone at Horwood House on Sunday where I was selling and signing books.

This flat rad grill was brought along. It was given to the owner by the factory and is believed to be from the 1952 Le Mans car! Comparing the grill with the period photos on page 55 of my book it is eminently believable. What do you think?



50% of the print run is now sold. Thanks to everyone who has bought a copy.

I have recently had a few inquiries as to whether the book is still for sale....the answer is a definite YES.

Due to Mark Carney dropping interest rates and printing money, Sterling is nearly 25% cheaper, thus it is a great time to buy for overseas Morganeers. Who knows where the pound will go next but surely it can't go any lower??

Morgan International Adventure (I) is unavailable and there are no plans to print any more. I still have healthy stocks of MIA II but these will become more and more depleted as we get closer to Christmas.
