Re: WWW 2014

A hook-up for us too, please Neil. We'll have the Dandy folding camper as usual.
Planning to be there Thursday to Monday at the moment.
Thanks

Re: VWX 317L - Hilda, Lesley's Imp - THINK WE HAVE A PROBLEM

Phil,
Hope your run went OK. I don't think you have a H/G problem. I've got a compression gauge - will dig it out and bring it over on Wednesday evening.

Re: WICKED WELSH DATES 2013 (with pics!!)

Great pics. The cars look like vanguard models. Do you mind if I pinch a couple? Thanks - you are welcome to use any of them. If you want full resolution files just let me know. I'm planning to get a short note on Friday's run plus photos for Impressions off to Grahame tonight. Roy & Dawn Imp011

Frenchay Village Museum (nr Bristol) - Imp display & show

I've just come across this - courtesy of a relative sending me a page from the bygones section of today's 'Bristol Post'. See http://www.frenchaymuseumarchives.co.uk/MuseumPage06-Exhibitions.htm for details. The display is obviously supported by the Imp Club and both the Club and several individual ...

Re: Isle of Man - Idea.

Just to say that the IOM Steam Packet company is offering 50% off fares for bookings made before 31st January (see http://www.steam-packet.com) - it looks as if the actual travel can be made at any time in 2013 (although I'd expect some restrictions - wouldn't expect them to offer cheap fares for th...

Re: Isle of Man - Idea.

I've done a bit more than just research - we actually went to the IOM 17th - 21st September. The Imp stayed at home (...preening herself ready for the http://WWW...) and we took the modern Honda Civic & Dandy folding camper on a 5 day return ferry trip giving effectively 3 full days on the IOM using...

Re: Imp sidecar unit

All (including, in particular, Andy), Great info - and I would love to see the pics too. Just to let you know that (at Graham's suggestion) I contacted Paul Standish about the possibility of bringing 'Impulse' to an Imp Club event in 2013. The reply was essentially positive and was copied to Andy fo...

Re: Imp sidecar unit

I was also at the Mallory Park Festival of 1000 Bikes (great day as usual) and was surprised to see the 'Impulse' sidecar sprint outfit as I have been following motorcycle racing since 1965, bought my Imp in 1969, and thought I knew most of the Imp powered motorcycles/outfits - but I'd obviously mis...

Re: Isle of Man - Idea.

Just a thought - how would people feel about going 'out of season'? On the plus side it should be cheaper as there are more offers - on the minus side the weather could be dodgy (and the Irish Sea rougher) but there is no guarantee on the weather even in the 'summer'.

Re: Isle of Man - Idea.

I'll make a few enquiries to try and get an idea of likely costs, etc., and see if we can get any worthwhile discounts.

Re: Isle of Man - Idea.

Since I don't expect anyone would let me borrow Mike Hailwood's 250cc Honda Six for the trip (excuse my fantasy..but it is a lovely thought...) - taking Suzy around the TT course (just imagine the gentle echo from the exhaust going through Kirk Michael) sounds an absolutely fantastic idea. If we can...

Re: WICKED WELSH 2012 DATES CONFIRMED

Great news Neil. Dawn & I will be there. Please can you reserve us an electric hook-up.
If there is anything I can do to help (after all - I live a lot closer to Pandy than you do) please let me know.

Hi Aled,

Dawn & I are still planning to be there with Suzy Imp - but we may not be camping now. I presume that we should buy tickets on the rally website?

Cheers

Sorry Aled, we can't manage the last weekend in May - so no Pembrey for us this year as well. I'm sure I had more time before I 'retired'.....
