Re: Topic dedicated to HSA Speed Championship Class N

Thanks Speed over the finish line is 78mph on the first run which is about 7500 in 4th (according to the spreadsheet I use) with my short gearing. I dont get time to look at the rev counter but the 1st shift light on the dash top is programmed to come on at 8000 with the other 3 following in 400rpm ...

Re: HSA Curborough event

A couple of in-Imp videos from the Curborough event a couple of weeks back. Bounced over the kerbs a bit at the Molehill in the first timed run which was just over half a second slower than in the run-off where I almost fumbled the gear change at the hairpin....

Re: Topic dedicated to HSA Speed Championship Class N

If you've ever been to Gurston Down you will know just how steep the final climb is up Burke's Rise from Ashes to the finish line. Last weekend saw the HSA visit Gurston and 'Pimpdriver' Eric clocked 95mph over the finish line in the 998 turbo Clan!! To put that in perspective on a good day when I'v...

Re: Topic dedicated to HSA Speed Championship Class N

Some in car footage from Gurston last weekend (non - HSA). Not a particularly quick run but good fun nonetheless..... This coming Sunday 24th is the HSA championship round at Loton Park where the runners include Eric Morrey in action with the Clan along with Mark Paterson in his G15 and Stuart Cairn...

Re: Topic dedicated to HSA Speed Championship Class N

The HSA championship kicks off this Sunday with a two lap event at Curborough. For 2009 there are 6 competitors registered for HSA class N, three of which will be at Curborough. The entry was restricted to 80 cars due to the longer course being used and apparently was heavily oversubscribed. There a...

Re: Topic dedicated to HSA Speed Championship Class N

The HSA round at Prescott this weekend is a multi-championship meeting and hence there are 9 Imp engined vehicles entered. Well worth a look and there are also some of the quickest single seaters in action such as Chris Merrick, Deryk Young and Jos Goodyear with their 4 litre Judd engined Goulds whi...

Well done to Davrian pilot Mark Ibbotson who won class N in 2007 and also came 4th overall in the overall standings (102 contenders). Eric Morrey took the class P honours with some very quick times in the Clan; lack of opposition within the class restricting his overall position due to the scoring s...

The HSA round at Prescott this coming Sunday 22/7 has been postponed until September due to the weather (exact date to be advised) :cry:

Meanwhile I came across a nice pic of Tim's G15 at Harewood:

Hi Tbs and edis is ok, so long as you dont have forced induction (as then the equivalence formula of 1.4 applies and the 998 effectively becomes 1397). Good luck with the project. Although not yet confirmed, for 2007 the HSA are proposing for class N to be an amalgamation of up to 1040 modified road...

Just occurred to me that it costs more to spectate at the British GP than compete at Curborough :shock: Not only that, if the bloke in front of you spoils your run by 'losing control' of his car at 10mph, almost hitting the barrier before stalling, at Curborough they would show the red flags and let...

If you have some particular events in mind I would be inclined to contact the organising club and ask them to send you the regs rather than wait to see if they arrive. I've had most of the regs for this year's events and the majority of entry lists are already open so best not to delay I would sugge...

Well hopefully we'll meet up sooner or later. Interesting to note that there were 4 Imps at Prescott last weekend
Ian and Nigel Moss both with 1200 Imps, Richard Bourne and David Oakes with their 998s (Stiletto and Chamois repectively).

Despite the forecasts the Wiscombe Park HSA round remained dry last weekend. Slick organisation by Woolbridge Motor Club ensured that the event ran smoothly and there was even time for an extra 'fun run' at the end of the afternoon with competitors contributing a pound each towards the local church ...
