I recall, all those years ago when I was knocked back on my CAMS logbook application that I should have done what Ian Williams did and called it a "......... special". They missed the point. I was applying for recognition as a Marque (Prod) Sports (75 Mark 5s made) not Group A Sports like Ian's. It was too early for Historic.
