Hope you all read the regs you can enter the run and miss out the gravelly bits that might cuse stonechips it is cheaper aswell



well we had the avenger in the workshop and now it is running correctly it arrived a few weeks back with several problems and we cured many but some parts had to be ordered so this set up session was to get everything right now the parts had arrived. it was a usual tail of it has uprated camshaft carb exahust etc etc but it had all been put together badly or some parts were not up to the job i.e. the standard dizzy was worn and the advance mechnism and curve were wrong. We found the accellerator pump jets were blocked so all in all this 1600 GT with Sunbeam Ti tuned engine did not impress on the first run, we sorted all the problems and now it is so quick it has highlighted the fact that a front damper is worn so that is in the process of fettled. the car has competed on one scatter rally 5th overall and it hs run in an auto solo where it did not fair so well as it was a tight tarmac event and as i had discussed with the driver the seating position was wrong and the WRC lookalike hydraulic hand brake looked good but did not function so the car was hard to turn quickly, this handbrake did not have cables fitted to it so would fail an MOT and not be allowed to compete on night rallies or historic events on a road rally permit, so on Saturday we modified a standard handbrake lever and built a bracket to take the master cylinder so now cables can be fitted. other jobs completed on Sat were the strengthening plates to hold the halfshafts in and the replacement of the very tired rear wheel bearings the plates prevent the halfshaft from pulling out of the axle casing and on the auto solo this is what it had tried to do, so now that is cured. The person who fitted the seat mounting brackets and the seat bases welded the mounts into the shell in such a way that must of taken incredible amounts of planning and skill so that the seats will only fit in one position even though braclets have mutli holes to allow adjustment, they spent good money on the correct kit and then made a mess so this is next on the cards to be sorted so that i can get a my own seat into the passenger side and the driver can adjust his seating position so he has more control over the car and can get the lock on quicker for the tighter tests, he even ended up undoing the shoulder parts of his belts to lean forwards over the steering wheel to get the wheel turning fast enough. Any way i will post some pics some time of the car as there is a lot of good work gone into the car by the driver (who has 2 imps and is on here but not much recently) he has impressed me with his preparation skills and transformed the car from a dog with the right kit to a tidy,reliable example of a good rally car it is still a work in progress but it is out there now being used and abused.

couple of weekends ago i finished a night shift and went to watch Sam in the avenger at the charnock richard autosolo where he practised different lines and techniques over the tests, he set some very respectable times and i was impressed with his driving he just needs practice now to get consistant times, makes me feel better before i navigate on Sunday in scotland on the Doonhamer event which should give us both some practice in the car working as a team before we head off to Cockermouth on the 17th. should have some in car footage of the rallies as we now have two systems to try.

shakedown rally i.e. the first historic rally for Sam was the Doonhamer in Dumfries he drove the Avenger from Oxford to mine where we loaded it onto the trailer and drove to Dumfries competed in the rally and he went back to Oxford. we had a good day some excellent scenery and the test were challenging becoming more flowing in the afternoon, unfortunatley the event had a small entry due to the date having to move due to personal circumstances of the organisers, the ev ent was slickly run with 18 special tests and a 90 mile road route. We came away with first overall and in class but with only 8 cars out and only one other historic car it wasn't a giant killing but to win it you have to be in it :) and to finish first first you need to finish so it is a credit to Sam's preparation on the car.

I'd love to do something like this in the future, when funds permit. They do not at present. End of story. I must stop visiting casinos, smoking Cuban cigars and swigging vintage brandy nightly... :roll:

:?: Would my Chamois be eligable, Mike? You have seen it and know the specification. I have said this each year for at least two or three years, so please do not believe a word of it, but perhaps next season... :wink:

Sam in the avenger on the rally with me co-driving (badly called one test wrong and dropped us from a 3rd overall) 100 + cars out 40 + competitive, excellent event well organised as usual from Wigton motor club, Sam has a lot of potential and if he gets a full time co-driver next year he will have a good result, he is still building an imp to do these rallies but for now it is the Avenger and practice.

excellent starting for a young navigator we have had few young people go through the NESCRO series and onto the British championship.
