Although not anything like as elaborate as the VSCC’s Measham night rally, that run by the Morgan 3-Wheeler Club is supported every bit as enthusiastically. The last one had 16 entries and a route of 130 miles, in two loops, centred on Chesterfield. It took some toll of the trikes involved. A cigarette lighter had to be applied to the carburetter of one JAP engine to get it to fire up (no pun intended) at the start, and another JAP refused to go at all. A Super-Sports broke its rear chassis fork, clutch and adjustment were needed on another Moggy, another required a new battery before the second control, and the gasket of an F4 had been changed between North Wales and the start and a spare battery found en route. An Aero Morgan broke a timing-gear tooth, and the other two two-speeders also retired.
But there were eight finishers, to whom all credit. The first two places went to MX Sports models, with an F4 Morgan third. Stout fellows, tough cars. W B
