Reviving this old thread rather than starting a new one.

For those interested, there is an AC Greyhound of the Road mascot currently in the H&H online auction.

You can find it here:

You can sign up and bid online until 21st April 2019

A bit light on technical details on the car but nice to see an AC getting plenty of praise in the video and the comments.

Great cinematography from Petrolicious as always.

Robin attended the Ace 60th Anniversary race at Silverstone 2014 where some of us met her. I don't think the Californians were overly impressed with the weather that day....

Hi Simon,

It may seem obvious but the Ace Bristol Racing Book by John McLellan and Tony Bancroft is a good place to start. It is still available from the authors for £40 + p&p if I remember correctly.

Another extremely enjoyable sprint this year. Massive thank you to Bruce, Mike Smith, Mike and Nathan Berrisford, Peter de RH, Angela Yates, The medical team, and marshals. Everyone working together so well really makes the Sprint the special event that is. Thanks also to all who make the effort to come down and watch, cheer us on, take pictures and catch up with pals.

Speaking to some of our VSCC guests, they prefer coming to our sprint because it is so smoothly run, friendly, and fun. And that's coming from a club that has a season-long championship of sprints and hill climbs. I think that speaks volumes about our ACOC team.

Well that is bloody useful!

Thanks for sharing!

Just us then... By the way - don't look at the weather forecast. Ignorance is bliss!

Hi John,

The car was bought by someone at H&H post-auction in Derby in 2014.

It is now entered (with a much higher estimate) in their Duxford Sale on 21st March 2018

So who's going to the 76MM?

Anyone braving it and taking an AC?

Murray and I are doing the parade laps on the Saturday morning (in one of Newport Pagnell's closed-top GTs instead of an AC!). We will be there both days come rain wind or (hopefully) shine. Looking forward to seeing some familiar faces wandering the paddocks, at the fence, or in the bar!

I would be interested to know if this problem was solved and what was causing it. I would have guessed the ignition was not advancing as the revs increased.

Stuart Cycphus is a hive of information on Invacars. ( He used to send out copies of the instruction books for a small charge, I'm sure he would if you ask.
