First Run Out Of The Season - Cobweb Run

Sunday just gone was the first official run out of the season.  The weather was pretty good.  Not as good as in 2012 (I can't believe I have had this car four years!) but I still managed a sun tan.

The usual mix of TVRs and a few interlopers.  

I need to fiddle with the settings of the GoPro as the quality is shocking for some reason, but here are three videos.

The engine is properly run in now and sounds fantastic when wrung out.  It really wants to rev - not bad for an old pushrod V8.

I used to do the accounts for the only Marcos dealer in Scotland and having been taken for a drive in a beautiful blue metallic one with cream leather and I think a 4 litre engine, I had a lot of lust for one at the time.

It appeared really well put together and had unbelievable acceleration. The garage owner also had a Carrera 2 at the time and it felt pedestrian in a straight line by comparison.

Just a pity they didn't sell.

Indeed. I think it may have been the case of a niche manufacturer building a car or so a week, just enough to keep the people employed and the place going, then the race cars start getting successful and they think 'hey we can really make a go of this, but all of a sudden bills are coming in faster than the cars can be built or sold and it all goes belly up. Pity.

Have Marcos gone under?

Several times, the last one being in 2007.
