Well, I probably deserved the comment from Darrell that I was too stoopid to
understand. I sent mail saying that the race 'rounds' showed zero laps for
one Tiger and 4 for his, and asked the list if I was missing something. I
was worried that something terrible had happened to that beautiful car.
Only Darrell answered, and after reading the *complete* results, it's
apparent both Tigers finished at least a coupla hours long races, and that I
still don't understand all the rounds vs. team vs. car statistics. Am still
waiting on somebody to 'splain it to me, but just out of curiosity. In the

took it all the way to LeMans, and that he finished, is something that
deserves only admiration. Please be assured - I meant nothing negative at
all - only concern for the car. Oh yeah, and concern for the safety of the
And I'm looking for a historic Tiger for vintage racing - particularly
looking for car #74 from Sports Car Forum out of Ohio, which was driven by
Don Sessler. (There was also a number 74 Alpine from the same group - not
that one). If anybody knows what came of this car, or knows of any other
historic Tigers for sale, please let me know....
