I was disturbed to read the letter which you published in November’s Motor Sport from a Mr. J. Grottick of Stuttgart referring to the prices of Lucas fuel injection pumps and brake pads for TR6 in Germany. These prices are considerably higher than those charged by our own service company in Germany and by its agents. I have, therefore, written to Mr. Grottick in these terms and have asked him to get in touch with the General Manager of Joseph Lucas Germany G.m.b.H.
A copy of my letter is enclosed for your files and I wonder if you would be so kind as to forward the enclosed letter to Mr. Grottick.
A. J. Daniel,
Area Manager Europe,
