Morgan three-wheeler had been turned into a formidable sporting machine from
its original humble beginnings and that this story must be told.
During the research we interviewed or contacted over sixty Morgan three-wheeler drivers, tuners, enthusiasts or companies involved with three-wheeler production.
Included in the drivers we visited were several particularly important tuners and racers such as Harold Beart, Ronnie Horton, Robin Jackson, Clive Lones, Gordon McMinnies and of course Gwenda Hawkes (who has the distinction of achieving the fastest ever recorded pre-war speed for a Morgan three-wheeler of 115.66mph in 1930).
to name our book " Morgan Sweeps The Board " after the heading of a Morgan
advertisement used in the 1920s, and it was published initially by Gentry
Books in 1978.
