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.
