However, although this includes Imps, Clans & Davrians, if I'm not mistaken, this class is not specifically for road legal cars, so if you were looking to dabble into Sprints/Hillclimbs with your road legal Imp, you could be against stripped out racers on slicks.

I was thinking of joining the HSA again this year but I'm now looking at the HRCR speed series for road legal classics which was launched at Gaydon yesterday :D

Hello all and hello Graham, sorry to hear the Davrian is not taking to the hills and circuits anymore but hope to catch up sometime.

I'm hanging in there in Class N, and for those thinking about it there are only two cars registered so far this season - me and Andrew Cairney, both in IMPs - no lightweight Clans, Davrians or Ginetta's to worry about and no real slicks allowed either, list 1A and 1B tyres only still. :) so come and play! - It would be a real shame for the class to disappear altogether.

I'm at Loton Park this weekend 18/19 April Car 55 Imp001 (both days count for the Championship) if anyone is there come and say hello.

Hi Graeme
Glad you're still flying the flag for the Imps. Good to hear Andrew is out again, how is Stuart's recovery?

Hello Graham

I'll find out from Andrew how Stuart is getting on when we meet up. Last I heard slow but steady recovery. Lovely that Andrew has registered the Imp for this season. My Imp finally has the lightweight wheels it deserves (pic above) so I'll see how it goes at Loton. Still running the 930 sport spec engine (with your modified flywheel!- 5th season no rebuilds!) albeit with combined in/ex manifold and twin 35 DHLB dellorto's.

All best
Graeme

Hi,

Does anyone have any more info on this series? Sounds promising. I've left a message with the HRCR but haven't heard back yet.

Thanks,

Martyn

Hi Again,

Meant to say that wheels look great! Are they Image wheels? What tyre size are you running?

Hope things went well at Loton. Hope to join you when I get the Davrian finished!!

Hi Martyn

Yes, wheels are Image (RM3) 13x6 front 13x7 rear under the standard arches - they build them to your offset....

HSA Championship is run by Hillclimb and Sprint Association not HRCR (they have their own championship now) HSA has rounds all over the country and a very friendly championship, see all the info at the excellent website www.hillclimbandsprint.co.uk

It was good to see some old faces at Curborough yesterday.
Weather was great, too.

Well done to Greame Williamson, who made it into the class winners run off after beating, by a large margin, a 1700 Mk 1 Escort :D

It was great to see John Webster in his spaceframe Imp. All the years I competed in the HSA Championship, he would always visit us at the end of season Curborough, so it was a real pleasure to finally see him competing and enjoying his Imp.

Just noticed there's a DRAFT calendar for the 2016 SBD HSA championship on the HSA website www.hillclimbandsprint.co.uk.
There's photos of a couple of Imps at Loton and Prescott in 2015 and quite a few from recent and not so recent times on my web-site www.timbeckettphotography.com

Hope to meet some of the Impers on the hills in 2016

Tim
