GALPOT Weekly #47

Welcome to GALPOT Weekly #47 a review of the last seven posts at "Gettin a li'l psycho on tyres"

Surtees Ford TS7, Wings and Wheels, Dunsfold Aerodrome

The week started with a visit to Dunsfold Aerodrome for Wings and Wheels, my favorite surprise from the show was this 1970 Surtees TS7 Grand Prix designed by Sahab Ahmed and Peter Connew.

Edsel Ranger, Goodwood Revival

On Tuesday I celebrated the 55th Aniversary of E Day with a look at a 1958 Edsel Ranger.

4 1/2 litre S/C Bentley, Brooklands Double Twelve

W.O. Bentley described Wednesdays featured car seen above as a Pervesion and Corruption, he also inadvertently created an incorrect myth about these cars never having won a race.

MG YB, Summer Classics, Easter Compton

Thursdays post was about this one and a quarter litre MG YB, a pre '39/45 war design that did not go into production until 1947. MG posts will be returning to Tuesday as usual next week.

Ferrari 312P, Goodwood Festival of Speed

Among the most alluring of prototype sports car designs is the 1969 Ferrari 312P Berlinetta, chassis #0872 as seen above has a class winning history.

Lotus Ford 61, Brooklands Double Twelve

Yesterday's post featured a more humble design from 1969 the wedge shaped Lotus 61 Formula Ford racer belonging to hill climber Les Buck.

Rolls Royce Silver Ghost by Brockman, Hillsborough Concours d'Elegance

Unique amongst Rolls Royce Silver Ghosts must be this 1921 copper bodied example with coachwork by Brockman which was seen by Geoffrey Horton at Hillsborough Concours d'Elegance a couple of weeks ago.
