The following text by Stanley Mann was found on the Stanley Mann Racing website on Mar 28, 2013:

"With the weather being cock I decided as it was nearly spring I would try the hood and it works so not only dry but warm so you see you can drive your bent in any weather. So gloves on no hat and no coat lovely."
