Richard Thorne Classic Cars

1981 Morgan 4.6 +8 Class 1 race car


1981 Morgan 4.6 +8 Class 1 race car; multiple current race winning car in Morgan challenge race series; but also, eligible and very competitive in classic sports car clubs Future Classics. Previously owned by Philip Goddard, the current owner required the car 2012 and had the car maintained with no expense spared by Techniques. Class 1 cars are the most modified in the challenge series although they retain the original chassis, they are effectively a space frame chassis which adds considerable stiffness. This is highly desirable for a car that provides well over 400BHP per ton and has much modified brakes and suspension. Recent expenses in the file cover major suspension work, new front brake discs and bells and recent John Eales engine re-fresh only 3 races ago. These cars sound gorgeous and are very exciting to drive! As the owner says, it must surely be one of the lowest costs to podium cars you can buy! £63,500 Richard Thorne Classic Cars prepares and provides arrive and drive, race day support and storage facilities for more than 30 competition cars and would be delighted to continue to do so for this wonderful +8.
