Charles in Cuba

Post by Sydsmith » Thu Mar 28, 2019 9:20 am

Charles was shown driving an MG TD on the BBC news last night, did anyone spot the red SP250 when they panned around the cars he was looking at?

Yes John, as you say a small part but without doubt an SP250, just checked the latest PaSPort and it is not in there, have emailed Laurence, I bet he knows about the car already though. Syd

Laurence was not aware there was an SP250 in Cuba so it is yet another to add to the list, does any one have any idea how we could follow this up, friend in Cuba or going there for holiday soon perhaps?

I posted on the SP250 website that I bet Laurence didn't know about it and it seems I was right.

The man to ask would be the man owning the MG that Charles drove. I think his name was mentioned by the BBC. He may be the organiser of all the classic cars.

Either ask the BBC for his name or ask David Manners (our patron) if he has sent any spares to Cuba. He shouldn't divulge the email address but he could ask the man he sent parts to if he would like to let us know the car's details.

No one on this forum has stated a location in Cuba, nor on the DLOC members' list.

Could the car have come over from Miami?
