  • T Register Paddy Willmer David Easthope has written to me apropos the TA JB 9446 featured in the last newsletter. He opines that this is one of a series. JB 9445, he believes, is owned by Giles Peacock and was the TA used by Godfrey (Goff) Imhof during the 1937 trials season. The photos I have are labelled as being taken during an 'Alpine Trial' but, as you will see in subsequent issues of our thrilling newsletter, have all the appearance of a touring holiday. Has anyone else any ideas?

    David reports that fitting HV3 SUS instead of H2 carbs has improved consumption on his TA from 25mpg to 3Ompg. He has also modified the standard air filter by removing all its internals and wire mesh, shortening it and fitting a Morris l l00 paper element. The end cover is held on with slt screws to enable replacement every 12,000 miles. His distributor is from a high compression 998cc Mini-Cooper.

    Here is a photo of his TA mnning a 1250 TF engine with Arnott Supercharger at Silverstone in 1968, winning the l0 lap Allcomers Handicap. To see what his car looked like recently you are referred to the November 1982Newsletter-SF Page 21.

    Finally, I can provide copy colour prints of

    the cover photo of last June's 'Safety Fast!' - remember - T-Racers on the main straight at Silverstone for E3 each per 8" X 6" print. I need a minimum of ten orders with money up-front! ChequesPOs to me, then, in great profusion plus SAE of suitable size. Goodbye now..
