Morgan Motor and OAK Racing place an impressive 6th at the European Le Mans Series Opener

  OAK Racing overcome tough ELMS opener to take sixth at Paul Ricard     1st April 2012. OAK Racing began their European Le Mans Series campaign with a top-six finish at the 6 Hours of Le Castellet in France today in spite of several mechanical problems plaguing the team throughout the race. The driver crew of Jacques Nicolet, Guillaume Moreau and Dominik Kraihamer were forced to overcome an overheating engine, triggered by falling water pressure, to bring the Onroak Automotive-designed and built #24 Morgan 2012 LMP2 home sixth overall. A trouble-free opening stint from Kraihamer initially suggested the team would be in contention for a podium finish.

Dr Vince Cable visits Morgan Motor Factory

Morgan Motor Company was pleased to welcome Dr Vince Cable, Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, at the Morgan Motor Company on Tuesday 3rd April. He was interested to discover that the bonded aluminium chassis technology and super form body construction make the Morgan a very lightweight car. Light weight gives good fuel economy as well as agile dynamics. With shortages of petrol in some petrol stations and the continued increase in price of fuel, fuel economy in a sports car is very attractive. Dr Cable met three recent recruits to Morgan’s workforce. Steve Morris, Operations Director, introduced Blake Bishop, two years into his apprenticeship in metal fabrication and welding. Blake’s father, Mick Bishop, has worked for the company for the last nine years. Blake explained to Dr Cable the importance of feeling and handling material as well as understanding the technical properties...

MORGAN MAGNESIUM PROJECT

The project aims to develop appropriate technologies to enable magnesium alloy to be used as the primary material in the construction of a body-in-white structure to produce improved structural performance at reduced weight. Magnesium is the lightest structural metal available, 30% less dense than aluminium and is the eighth most abundant elements globally. Due to its inherent properites, use of sheet magnesium for vehicle structural applications will require hot-forming, increasingly being adopted by premium car manufacturers as it can produce larger and more complex panels. Morgan Motor Company intends to provide the initial route to market by adopting the developed technologies on its next generation of premium sports cars. The project consortium will become the basis of a new UK manufacturing supply chain.
