Well 2019 came & went, so did 2020, now we are in tier 4 lockdown (again) but looking to the future, the engine will be fitted with Weber DCO 3's & hopefully we can make some good horsepower, still looking to enter the Goodwood Revival with a professional drivers & a good amateur / semi professional driver who works well with the professional driver, we have a few in mind but we have both decided it wouldn't be Steve Bamford as his time is long past. (was he ever capable of driving more than 10 or 15 minutes -witness his dismal qualifying in 1999, 27th fastest ?
After crashing MYT twice & leaving Jean & Chris with the wreckage after Spa 2009 then crashing the RGS Atalanta Aston Martin at Castle Combe 2013 & again leaving Jean & Chris to sort the mess, I don't think he was - CA)
We have started to make & modify parts for the rebuild / assembly of MYT with a concentrated effort toward the end of 2019 with a (hopefully) finish in 2020 (funds permitting) so MYT can be entered in the Fordwater Trophy race at the Goodwood Revival ?? if there is such a race for 50s sportscars.
With the current FIA regulations we may just have to settle for 270 bhp which is what we had in 2013.
Interesting to note that VMF 65 doesn't comply with the 2015 rulings on DB2's, it runs 45DCOE carbs, full bunch of bananas exhaust manifolds, hole type front brake drums, rear quarter window vents, modern rotating round air vents in the door windows.
We sold the bonnet skin & the chassis box sections to Four Ashes customers, so we now have some more box sections made & they will be delivered shortly, we are about to use Keith Dixon's DB2 bonnet to make our buck even better than it was in 2013.
July 2011, We now have the brackets to bolt the DB2 chassis to the Celette jig, these should bolt the jig to the mounting points ofall of the suspension, engine & gearbox but only the rear axle mounts will fit as its so badly bent.
We will have to make our own brackets for the sill area & rear body mounts on the chassis to clamp it to the jig.
