Parked up at Llandovery, including some Imps that didn't stay at Pandy and a white Clan (OUP 10M is listed on the Clan Owners website as a "missing" Clan (so anyone know anything about this one or is it DUP 10M???)

I didn't get his name Neil but he lives in Raglan. He has raced against Graham Cashmore in the past so Graham will probably know the car and driver. He had a friend with him who wants to get back into Imps which is why they popped in.
If I told you I was a pathological liar, would you believe me?

Neil - do you mean he was going the other way or you overtook him?!!! In my mind I see a white van overtaking a Davrian giving it some welly.

He didn't say who he was, but the Davrian forum has the car down to Aaron Ardwark....

Another post shows entries on Epynt Hillclimb this year:

Ifan Davies Raglan Davrian Mk6
Mandy Bartlett Raglan Davrian Mk6

So this is probably him. He didn't look like he was called Mandy.

I didn't get the Davrian owners name either but he said he just stayed 10 minutes away!! He does hill climbs or sprints with the car and his wife competes with it too.

Just wishing that I hadn't had a look at this thread now, as I can see that I missed a great event. But I had a good excuse and Brands Hatch was also great. Hope to be back next year....

Anyway I think Its rubens turn to play with the other imps next year, he's been asleep for long enough now! erm how long you ask, well it will be 16 years since he was on the road for a year, prior to that he was erm asleep for 12 years :oops: so the lazy git has been asleep for longer than he has been awake!

Hi Paul, your Stag sounds like mine, a permanent feature taking up valuable garage space1 everytime I weld an inch, I uncover another 3 needing welding :roll: At least it's not using much petrol if it's not moving :lol:

Cheers Pete

Rhyddian - glad you made it for the run. Pity I didn't get to have a good look at the Clan even though I took a photo! Got distracted. Car looks really nice..and I'm glad it's no longer "missing".

Hi all, actually I couldn't make it in the end, it was my Dad that came down for a spin. He's done the bulk of the work on the car and he's now done over a thousand miles since it's been MOTd.

Good job there weren't 6 Imps on it in January!
