Our local VTR/TRA chapter, Delaware Valley Triumphs now has scanned all of the monthly newsletters back to the 1970's.

DVT (https://www.dvtr.org/)

I've been reading a few each night and came across this. Not sure, but probably from BMIHT Museum, in Gaydon, UK. Funny, I've been there a few times and never noticed it in the TR area.

Just in case anyone doesn't recognize it, that is Ken Richardson in the "Jabbeke speed trials" TR2 back in 1953. 124mph over a measured mile with only drum brakes!

And then another mile to get it stopped. Where would we be without guys like that?

Just in case anyone missed the 50th anniversary of this event, here's a one hour youtube video of the party. IIRC, Ken's son appears in it. :cheers:
