Interesting. I seem to recall that at one time RPI were against supercharging RV8s. I like Superchargers, "sod subtlety fit a b*****y great airpump."


Edit
This is what I recalled


Turns out the owner (now and previous) is one of the Directors at RPI.

Yes Alan Kennedy was one of the better Morgan racers in my days on the track (late 60s to mid 80s)

He was a member of the MSCC Vikings Team at the 1978 Donnington 6 Hour relay race , where we came second.

His car was blue with a Lotus twin cam engine as I remember. It would have been set up for the track , not grass tracks! so I am not surprised that it was a handful on the rough
. It seemed a good idea at the time, but I was young then. PS I bought it as a rolling shell direct from David Rutherford, i think it might have been his own hill climb car.
