      In 1964, a legendry local hooligan – Maurice Charles, was selling his ex factory supported D type for either eighteen hundred and fifty pounds in his local car showroom

      Charlie Sgonina – a famous local two wheel flyer – drove a DBR 1 ( about twenty millon these days ) on the road and in local sprints
