…IN A RED MIURA

Octane - - PASSED IT! -

THE COVER fea­ture in Oc­tane 153 brought me mem­o­ries of my one and only real-life en­counter with a Miura.

I was at­tend­ing a lo­cal hill­climb at Bar­bon, near Kirkby Lons­dale, which was a very no-frills event with ac­cess via a rough stony lane and park­ing in a field, usu­ally of long grass dot­ted with a va­ri­ety of cow pats or sheep muck. I had just paid my en­trance fee and parked up when a long, low, red sports car pulled up next to me.
