This stunning example of the famous French sports car came in for a rolling road session to improve some poor driving characteristics on the road. The car competed in the 1969 Tour de France with driver Jean-Claude Andruet. The car has been with it’s current owner for 22 years and is driven on the road regularly.

 

Sprint/hillclimb MG gets some major upgrades

This MG Midget is in for some extensive upgrades. The engine is out for a refresh along with a hotter cam and some head work. Along with some other preparation work the gearbox is being rebuilt with one of our Quaife dog engagement gear sets and an LSD will be installed in the axle. This tidy example is built around a very good body shell and with the new improvements should prove to be very competitive.

We can confirm that the British Touring Car legend John Cleland will be sharing the drive with Shaun Rainford in the Nash Metropolitan at this years Goodwood Revival. John first drove the car on it’s debut at the 2012 Goodwood Revival in the rain. His mastery of the slippery conditions can be seen in the video below. Since that time the car has been through some development and is a lot more competitive. We cant wait to see what John can do this year.
