Re: 4 x special saloon imps Mallory Park 20th July

Hi Andy,

Is there any info on what the day's timetable will look like anywhere? How many races/etc.
Looks like it could be a good day out for a £10er if the sun is out!

Regards
Frank Claydon

Also- There's an incredible Cider farm only 20 minutes or so away from Pandy. They do some awesome cider (still, fizzy, medium, dry, sweet, etc) and are a really friendly bunch of guys. I doubt there is time in the itinerary for a full blown trip there (if we wanted they could do us a tour and show ...

Re: george gunn's jarvis jedi imp

It's not supposed to be an imp though is it. It's supposed to be a silhouette racer as per "back in the day" of the super saloons. It's supposed to be a bl***y quick race car that bares some sort of resemblance to it's namesake

Two absolutely awesome videos! Are the two imps and two cortinas the first four cars on track? Or are they just leading a group? The imp seems to have tons of extra speed at certain points compared to other cars. I desperately wish I could join the imp racers out there, it truly is my idea of heaven...
