I am very happy to report to all of you that last night we have recovered both cars. The March is untouched, My Father's Lola is fairly well dismantled but complete. We will hopefully have it ready for the Brands Hatch meeting in early July.
I can't give any further details at the moment due to there now being an investigation, but I wanted to thank each and every one of you for the helpful emails, posts, activity that you have carried out spreading the word and even just the words of encouragement. It has meant so much to all of us.
I have to say that the phone call I was able to make to my Father last night was just fantastic! I know it helped him immensely over the last 3 weeks, knowing that all of you were out there helping.
I wondered if you and your colleagues in the US could help us with a very unfortunate incident. My colleague Daryl Taylor and I have had a pair of Formula Atlantic cars stolen from our premises last week. Both cars incidentally originated from America – Daryl’s March is the ex Howdy Homes car and my Father’s Lola is ex Tim Coconis. I wonder if you would help us by circulating the information to anyone they know as we would not want somebody buying stolen cars. And if anyone if offered these cars info back to us would be great. We are offering a considerable reward to get these back as they are both newly refurbished and ready to go for the season.
Many thanks - Bruce
