Is Mr Carter's car really standard roadgoing?
No, a mistake was made on the entry list as the car is R3. The organisers have been made aware.

just received - already emailed to say my car isn't a Ti but also noted that Team Carter is entered in RG Production :shock:

note the time penalty for hitting cones :oops:

How very random, I entered both cars in R3 as usual. Now double driving the coupe.

Roof Rack for SE5a

I think the temporary/inflatable bars rely on 4 door and or opening rear windows?

Agreed, not convinced about the gutter strength but I have seen GTEs with classic roof racks.

2.9efi clutch change

My XR4x4 2.9i, my manual OD 5a and later the same 2.9 fitted with a 2.8 flywheel, bellhousing and type 9 gbox in my 5a all used the heavier duty clutch stamped “low lift”.

I always got them from Precision Clutch.

The reg of that XR4x4 was F800 PPE of that helps internet searching.

Curborough 19 August 2018

There is a burger van/hut there, open during the day. Having a mind blank if that’s just Sunday or Saturday too?

There’s plenty of places to buy food in Lichfield, including a supermarket.

Most using camping cookers and bbqs.

Expansion bottle .

Ah! Now that’s very plusable. Would have to be off a mk3 mini, the bulkhead mounted one before they moved to the inner wing...

I think they’re from a mini aren’t they?
Standard 6a expansion bottle doesn’t look like one I’ve seen on any mini’s I’ve owned, infact I’m struggling to think of a mini that had a factory fitted expansion bottle except the Rover Cooper.

Castle Combe 28 July 2018

Post castle combe checks on JKL do not look good, lost compression between two cylinders and the cooling system is pressurising.. oh balls!

I was persuaded not to buy a cometic HG, looks like a decision I am going to regret :(
