no damage! a nice change for me, very short and rubbish value for money compared to the rallying, but that is due to my lack of skill at hillclimbing i even used the handbrake on the hairpin, great crowd pleaser but slow compared to the proper hillclimbers, still local hill and a nice day out, i wou...

drill a hole in the footplate and use a bonnet pin bolted through the floor behind the front seats, a spacer and rubber tube or strong spring mat be required to prevent rattle! regards mike

sell a couple of cars strip the best bits from the others and look for a local car club that runs a suitable event as i say if you look into it classic rallying it has lots of levels you don't need £££'s and the rules are not like the british championship/HRCR that seems to have attracted big money ...
