Review of the 1951 sportscar race at Dundrod in color . :) Also, you may want to get Jim Pearson's stunning representation of this majestic road-course for GPL. If you own GPL and enjoy it, you just simply owe it to yourself to get this track and drive it with one of the many classic open-wheelers available in the sim. :) CLICK HERE to go to Jim's site.

Rather than start a new T.T. thread, I am trying to find decent (colour if poss) pictures of S. Moss' Jaguar from either the 1950 or the 1951 races at Dundrod.

I have mistakenly purchased a second 1950 Le Mans XK 120 so I thought I'd repaint it as one of Stirling's winning cars.

In 1951 he drove C-Type!

My cars - my career has a photo showing he drove JWK 988 with aero screen and front bumpers. The numbers (7 naturally) were white suggesting a darkish green but not as dark as the HRG he is lapping. Another photo shows it was lighter than the Aston MartinsThe car ran without spats on the rear wheels. The Le Mans car had spotlights and a leather bonnet strap which the Dundrod car didn't - and no bumpers. So get filing!

Or give it to me :rolleyes:

I got my info from the Tourist Trophy website; never believe what you see on the web....

Therefore, I am looking only at 1950. It has to be the T.T. car.

I have that book, Duncan, but there isn't a picture of the Dundrod car, which I have at the back of my mind as being white. But why do I think that.....?

Is this of any help?

And another here showing exactly the same shade of green although it's by the same artist:

Or this one:

Or this...

You probably found these, but just in case you don't get a colour photograph...

Mine too

I too would have said white, but I've just found three different photos in three different books and the car's too dark for white...

Funny, I glanced at that picture myself but immediately dismissed it as this semi-senile brain was so certain the car was lighter.... I think I decided that was Oulton Park (in 1950???? - :blush: )

So, green it would appear to be.

Edit: I have just found my white car!!! #6 driven by Leslie Johnson. I feel relieved.

I think we've covered this in another thread (I came across this browsing for something else - a head-on view of Moss's '51 Dundrod C-type, to be precise) - but the definitive answer from the GMH is a 'pale, wishy-washy pea green'.

Barry - did you ever get the Dundrod XK finished?

Just finished this. A bit crude, but I have it from the Great Man Himself that the colour is spot-on.

Although not sure if this is the best thread on which to post it - however, it does follow-on from Barry's question.

It is a re-paint of a Brumm model, R101, of the Moss XK120 raced at Silverstone the foloowing year. Different car, different reg number. I still have to have another go at changing the number on this from JWK 650 TO JWK 699. My real problem is poor eyesight coupled with having 10 thumbs.

BTW - I never did get to see the High-quality video review of the 1951 Dundrod sportscar race: does anyone still have a working link?
