Listing Detail Tabs

In late 1979 Julius Thurgood puchased a venerable 1967 MGB Roadster that had been used as a racecar for most of its life. Fuelled by ambition to compete in long distance events, Julius teamed up with brothers Rae and Graham Davis to form the Moto-Build racing team in order to contest the inaugral 1980 Willhire 24 Hours at Snetterton. The rebuilt MG stood up well against modern machinery in this gruelling marathon, despite being sidlined with a broken differential in the early hours of the Sunday morning. The errant axle was rebuilt in the pits using parts from an A60 van retrieved from a local scrapyard. The team resumed the race to finish 16th overall, winning £200 in prize money for their efforts.
