laurence said:the MG factory, that also prepared the big Healeys, worked out that the best way to win in races in Italy was to paint the cars red - thus fooling the locals into believing it was a 'local' car coming from a distance, ensuring that the railway crossing would be clear, there were no sheep in the way and that no villager had accidentally overturned their cart in the middle of the road - fates that had plagued the non-red cars in the past. lo and behold, they beat the Italians. and thus began the trend for sports cars to be red.
