Yesterday I took a day off from putting my Rapide back together and had a day at the BHR Vintage race meeting at Mallory Park, Leicestershire. I had an enjoyable day wandering around the paddock chatting to racing acquaintances from way back when I was involved myself. I found a couple of items of Vincent interest and took a few snaps with my Smartphone. I managed to speak briefly to someone working on the outfit and asked about the cylinder heads. He told me that they had been altered so that the rockers didn't open the valves halfway down the valves like the standard Vincent setup. I presume that the idea was to lighten the valve gear. It seemed to go well and held the lead in front of the very quick Morgan three-wheelers for most of the race but unfortunately expired before the end of the race. I didn't manage to speak to the rider of the Egli Comet.
