We recently participated in the Sprite Club's 4-day tour of Gippsland in the Marcos, and as this is my home territory, the Marcos was happy to lead the group on some sighting laps around the fabulous Bryant Park Hillclimb circuit.

It's Spring time Downunder, so events are ramping up to take advantage of the fine weather.
The yellow car pictured at one of our club's Open Garage mornings is an Aussie fibreglass special called a JWF Milano. Made in Sydney in the late 1950's to fit on a range of vehicles from the Humble Morris 8 to an MGA. This one has a supercharged MGA engine and running gear.





The Marcos is pictured heading off on an early, foggy morning shakedown run in preparation for this year's Geelong Revival which gets underway in about a week's time - the aim is to beat last year's 15.1 second, standing quarter mile time.

Ran the Marcos at this year's Geelong Revival today. A standing quarter mile sprint along the beach-front boulevard. Best time 15.60 and about 100mph at 7000rpm in third. (3.1:1 final drive)
