Re: HSCC 2016 Race Series

Another great weekend for me at Silverstone, great to see so many Imps on track and in the Paddock. I had a great race with Graham Biggs and an Anglia at the back of the pack, dicing for the whole race, Anglia v quick on the straights slow through the corners. Special thanks to Andy Jones and Chris ...

Re: hscc 2014

Thanks, it was due an overhaul anyway - at least it didn't go pop! or drop oil :-)

Need to replace Mr Heale's ignition module too... and track down newly increase in water temperature... but pretty confident all will be good for Oulton Park

Re: Silverstone Finals

Great day on Saturday, agree with Andy’s comments about the comradery and support amongst the Imp drivers and supporters. The paddock had a real end of term feel about it, with everyone being there with or without their cars. Great racing, especially watching David and Simon either side of a gaggle ...

I definately got through the tunnel on the start finish line last year, the entrance is just...
