Morgan Sports Cars - The Lawrence Tune Years 1961-1964
Written by J.D. Alderson & Chris Chapman.
Foreword by Richard Shepherd-Brown
Hardback Book
Third of 3 books in a series

This book is the third in a series by Jake Alderson Alderson and Chris Chapman detailing the competition and development history of the four-wheeled Morgan. However, it reads well as a stand-alone volume. It covers the exciting period in the early Sixties when the Plus 4 was at the peak of its success and there was much activity at the factory to secure the survival of the marque during a period of falling sales.

The book takes its title from the involvement of Chris Lawrence and his Lawrence Tune team who had begun privately developing the Plus 4 model for racing in the late 1950s. By 1961 Lawrence was running the factory works team of racers in the UK and Europe, regularly humbling significant opposition including Porsche. In 1962 he took Peter Morgan’s new low-line Super Sports design to Le Mans with co-driver Richard Shepherd-Barron, who contributes the foreword to the book, and finished 13th overall and first in class.
