Great piece of film, thanks for posting. Just an observation though, the wipers on what is an old race car looked to be working better than any Morgan I've owned!!!


Here for a good time not a long time!!

I got a laugh out of the occasional drip down the inside of the windscreen... Just like my '65 +4!

From the cream instruments, the speedo in kph and the general picture I think this is XOV 555 being driven by Adrian van der Croft or Jack Bellinger.

I couldn't recognise the driver from his overalls!

I am guessing the side screens were omitted to counter misting up inside the cabin.

It would be interesting to see the same driver and car on a dry track for the comparison. I wonder what caused the car in front of him to suddenly spin at the end of the straight. It is almost as though something locked up as he backed off for the curve.

The way the driver was holding on to the gear lever along the straights made me think that they had a problem with it jumping out of top?

XOV555? I've seen that at Dijon a few years ago.
