Re: Full English weekend. North Devon. June 22nd weekend

I am bringing my Chamois on the trailer.
It’s been several years since I have driven it any distance
so a trailer is a kind of insurance for me.
I am going on to Bideford visiting relatives for a few days after.

Re: Offroad play day Brickhill September 9th

James, I dont want to complicate things but it depends on which MSA Permit you are applying for. Also on age of driver/passenger. What has Mike Hayward suggested? Suggest you have a quick look at MSA Blue Book http://www.msauk.org/uploadedfiles/msa_forms/bluebooks/12/329_342_Specific_Regulations_for...

I may even be persuaded to bring the Dellow out to play, but not sure of legalities with MSA
using open car and younger drivers.

The Imps, were in National B class 3, along with a solitary westfield. Dave Oliver won the class, followed by Nigel Weeks,both in Imps, ahead of the westfield. In ...

I have seen several different attempts for silencer protection, but the cheapest is to get hold of an old washing machine from the tip, take out the drum and shape your own stainless steel perforated guard!!
