    New Hereford member due to LB build commencing March 2020

    Hi,
    Just joined in good time for the LB monocoque arrival (still a few months away but will soon be here!).
    When it does arrive I'll have had an 18 month wait but, as I've had a 35-odd year attraction to the Stratos, another few months won't matter and consider myself very blessed to be able to realise the creation. I sourced a 2000 year GTV for the 3.0 V6 24V engine/gbox unit and have now to get a suitable place to build it as currently the garage is a total motorcycle area.
    The build will be GRP4 round arch in Darniche/Mahle 1979 MCR winning livery.

    Look forward to interacting with others in the near future as being a life long motorcyclist this is going to be something very different indeed!

    Take it easy
    Trevor

    Hi Trev, welcome to the club. As a fellow motorcyclist/LB builder with limited space, I suggest you commandeer the hallway/lounge/living room to store a few bikes...temporarily, of course

    One piece of advice when it comes to driving it, though: don't do like a motorcycling friend of mine did when first trying to drive a car, and try and lean it round a corner. It doesn't work ...and you look a proper arse with a panicky expression on your face as you lean hopelessly into the door/the passenger's lap.

    Welcome and good luck for your build
    Darniche/Mahe MonteCarlo 1979 is a very good choice and certainly much appreciated by thoses two champs still alive and very active here!

    Bernard is often honoured at Retromobile classic-cars show in Paris and in several historic rallies in South of France or In Italy where he is very popular!

    Alain Mahé is also the organizer of Rallye du Var every years

    Ps notice just a detail their Stratos group 4 was with square arch in 1979 and 1980
