Making New History
Legends are legends for a reason, and it’s not easy to replace one! Veteran engine man Mark Morgan-Davies has taken over the reins of Rocket 88 from a true legend: Mike Egan. Known locally for his motorport skills, Mike has been winning races since the 1970s – he even bagged a Natal off-road racing championship in the 1980s. Mike’s passion for motors (especially V8s) is what motivated him to start importing American muscle engines to South Africa. Through the years Mike brought in thousands of engines that were fitted into local bakkies, drag racers and custom cars.
Finally, aged 68, Mike decided to put his trust in somebody he felt could not only make Rocket 88 work, but also grow it. He sold the business to Mark Morgan-Davies, who he believes could ‘…step into my boots with his experience and work ethic…’
