Austin built three 750cc twin-cam single-seaters before the War. These are the two survivors that were on display at the Gaydon Museum yesterday. They had a top speed of 125mph, which wouldn't endear them to today's elite drivers, but they'd fit the circuit at Monaco today better than current F1 cars.

Think George Turner, who wasn't there at Gaydon this time, has a 65 Rover BRM on the stocks, it is on my hit list.
Nice also to see Colin, RS models there, the new Chevron B16 was on display for orders soon.

A TE21 Alvis on display at Gaydon that brought back memories of my yoof. As a kid I spent too much time riding in the back of sundry Alvis products. Truthfully, I can't recall one journey in one that didn't make me vomit, and I don't suffer from travel-sickness.

Elegant, nicely made, desperately unreliable, good looking (maybe) and finished by 1967. Bye bye Alvis.
