1966 was a great year for England. As it turns out, it also wasn’t bad year for MG. Harry Barton’s first car was a beautifully restored MGB Roadster, with less than 400 miles on the clock. This was an absolutely stunning car, purchased from ADW Automotive and a chap called Adrian Wilson. The Barton family went on to buy a TR6, Triumph Spitfire and a 1959 MGA from Adrian, forming the basis of Harry’s induction into classic motoring.
Thanks to a lot of hard work and late nights from all at Retro Engineering, the TiSa has performed exceptionally well in all four meetings this season. Harry has taken full advantage and enjoyed considerable success in all races. Participation in both The Masters and HSCC next season will hopefully lead to a couple of podium positions.
Whilst it’s still very early in Harry’s development, with a very promising first season and a busy schedule ahead, we are already thinking about sponsorship. With comments like;
“I’m tipping Mr. Barton as a future champion.”

“His rate of progress is outrageous.”
“The best of the Touring cars was the BMW 1800Ti of young Harry Barton”
Perhaps we’re not too ahead of ourselves?!
We will certainly be looking for a headline sponsor for next season. It’s also not too late to get involved this season. If you’re interested in getting in early and having an initial exploratory conversation, do please get in touch.
If you’d simply like us to keep you posted on developments, just let us know.
