I’m sure the road noise increases when I turn right. I’ve done the wheel bearings recently so dont think it can be that.

It almost sounds like a roaring sound like a 4 blade early fan noise, for those who know how they sound.

Any ideas?

Wheel bearing or possible cv joint issues, get it to a wide area and get someone to listen for it.

Are you running Discs if so could it be the backplate is loose or one of the anchor point is broken and when you put lock on it is being forced towards the disc and catching. As others say I would normally suspect CVs but the description of the noise for that does not sound like what I would expect.

It’s a twin shoe brake set up which is all new. Running non spaced minifins. Car is a mk1 1960, with rubber couplings.

I once had this on a wreck of a Mini I had. It was radius arm bearing wear.

It hummed loudly round left handers but silent on right handers.

It turned out to be wheel bearings. I bought some from Pat Williams, a local car parts place and fitted them before going to Brooklands. 450 miles later they were shot. Now fitted timkens. Hoping these last a tad better!

Just to add, I was pretty sure it was wheel bearings but ruled it out as they were just a few hundred miles old. Just goes to show how pants some parts are.
