Marina 16 G.T. raceboat

Does anyone remember the specially modified Marina 16 G.T. race boat called "Penny Pride", that was entered in the 1967 Wills race in the Bristol Channel and in the Welsh 100 in 1968? It was driven by Roger Cooper and the Co-Driver was Harold Haddock. It was powered by twin, Swedish-made 50hp Crescent Marin outboards, and later with twin 55hp versions. By chance I managed to spot it in the opening seconds of this old film of the 1967 Wills race, I found on youtube: and here is a still of the boat I captured from the film: https://flic.kr/p/E6n9AZ
If anyone can shed more info on Penny Pride and where it might be today, please let me know as I am researching the history of Marina Boats Ltd. Also any info on the Roger Cooper and Harold Haddock would be great too.
Thanks
Alf.
