The hats do get to you, John...

Mark Bisset has sent me this one, it's not '38 Lobethal we have to assume because of the number, nor '37 Phillip Island. Anyone care to take a guess of whence this came?


And further on the subject of the hats, I'm pretty sure I saw a pic from somewhere in '38 or '39 (the AGPs?) that Lwa-Wright had a 'normal' helmet and his riding mechanic still the 'bad hat.

Hmm - a good question Ray! None of the shots of Lea-Wright have that number, nor do any of the other Terraplanes that feature in the album! Bugger!


In regards to their party hats - here's a couple that might help to jog your memory Ray?


I'd love one of the white ones to go with the Singer if I could find one. But anything I've found so far doesn't 'quite' hit the mark!


I managed to meet Mark Bisset today at Motorclassica and had a great chat! Am keen to explore what might come from it!
