MINOR DRIFTING

Sir, In reply to Mr. J. Carrnalt-Jones re Morris Minor cornering, I must say I am a little puzzled. My 1950 Minor takes corners at maximum speed in beautiful four-wheel slides, without touching brakes. Even Moss touches his brakes to get in a four-wheel slide. If Mr. CarmaltJones is unable to do this, would he please look at his rear shockers, fit new ones if over 10,000 mileage ? Would he fit softer covers than those Dunlops ? Then the way to get round is to take advantage of the understeer before oversteer sets in, at really high speeds. Just as the corner is being entered, the front going round, and the back starting to feel as if it is going to slide, give the steering wheel a very quick twist as if to take the corner sharper. With me this always results in a lovely four-wheel controlled drift. Don’t forget to ‘start on the right-hand side. of the corner or near the white line. The corner must be approached at apparently alarming over-speed, to get the front wheels to drift in the required manner. Naturally you

don’t wait for the back to seem to be about to go, but the correct moment conies with practice. Just you pretend that corner is twice as sharp as it really is, keep that foot down, and round you’ll go, just as well as any racing car—I say ! “I’ll show him how any time he likes—in his Minor.”

I am, Yours, etc..

Walsall. D. C. JOBERNS. *
