Jaguar’s Andrew Whyte informs us that this year’s third annual Monterey Historic Automobile Races at the beautiful Laguna Seca Raceway on California’s Monterey Peninsula will feature a special tribute to Jaguar, for which the organisers are attempting to attract many famous Jaguar racing cars of the past. This “gathering dedicated to the days when race events were fun” takes the form of races and exhibitions of pre-and postwar racing cars. It will he followed on Sunday August 29th by the 26th annual Pebble Beach Concours, possibly America’s major concours, held at the Del Monte Lodge on the Monterey Peninsula.
Andrew Whyte can provide entry forms, should any readers want them. He can be contacted at Jaguar Cars, Browns Lane, Allesley, Coventry CV5 9DR (0203-34 2121). Additional information can be obtained from Steven Earle, M.H.A.R./Suite 101, 136 El Camino, Beverly Hills, California 90212.
Mr. T. Newton, of 72 Coventry Close, Scunthorpe, South Humberside, informs us that he is in the process of forming an owners’ club for 1948-1971 Morris Minors. Aptly, in the case of the earlier examples of this Issigonis small-car masterpiece, he has entitled the club Split Screens.
