In Leicester at John Finnemore's shop Nº 9 joins Tony Eckford's Nº 8 and Chris Beighton's awesome vintage Tiger race car. Some final tweaking will be done before the two Le Mans Tigers venture south to the Goodwood Revival.

Chris Beighton's race car is fully sorted. Later in the month in this car Chris would win his class as well as the overall series championship in the AMOC's Lighthouse Anglo-American Challenge Series. (Note the "interesting" wheel in the foreground.)

While finishing touches are being done to the Le Mans Tigers, I am the houseguest of Chris, and his lovely wife Judy, in their circa 1650 church cottage.
