CM Dinner and Presentations evening

According to the CM results sheet, there’ll be a few trophies for us to collect.

Oh and well done to Ben, it looks like he’s won best novice :hurrah:

Castle Combe 20 October 2018

Just to be clear this is nothing to do with CM, it's down to the MSA changing the number of required practice runs. My point was that if they only have to give us three runs 1 X Practice 2 X Timed, then you could potentially be getting one run less for your entry fee (and would organisers take advan...

Castle Combe 20 October 2018

Somehow it doesn't seem fair to score on one run, if you don't know you're only getting one go.

I wonder how it's going to pan out next year when you only get one practice run. Will we only get three runs in total? Will organisers increase the entry to take up the extra capacity?

Castle Combe 20 October 2018

Sorry to hear it didn’t go to plan. That’s three incomplete events this season, which must be a record. Very frustrating when you’ve paid out and put all of the effort in to get there.

What’s the deal with CM, are they scoring it?

Oh, and congratulations to Josh. Well done.

Looking for a project SS1

Yes I've seen it. The wife loved it says I can have it but it's all done nothing for me to fix. Wife's not that keen on the SS1. The other cars I've done have given me more pleasure getting them back on the road than actually driving them, is that sad or what. No it’s not, I totally get that. I’ve ...

Beware sending a BACS payment to QRG

Really sorry to hear of your predicament Ant, I really hope you get your money back. You’re definitely not alone, I believe people have been scammed for the entire value of a house when a solicitor’s email account had been hacked. Scary stuff. I hate paying by BACS, so tend to send a token payment f...

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

Lots of modern Jap/Chinese pickups about nowadays. Though there are still quite a few Renault 4 & 12 types.

Could be a nod to the colours of the Turkish flag.

I keep looking out for an Anadol but not seen one yet.

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

I always enjoy seeing the recycled Western European cars in the East. Some badged Renault some Dacia, not sure who the manufacturer of the FIATalike is.

Looking for a project SS1

Jim is definitely a 3rd type of owner. He owns a third of all the Scimitars ever built :lol:

Though most of them are probably on his shelves

Looking for a project SS1

They’re not the best looking Scims, but are by a margin the most fun (IMHO of course, but I have owned most of the others). Not had a 1600 SS1, but I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be at least 95% of the fun of a Ti :lol: :w I’ve had several CVH powered Fords back when they were new cars. They...

SHOCK CHOICE

Why would you need to remove the shocks to make a height adjustment?

It’s a simple C spanner adjustment. You need to jack the car up to take the weight off the shock, but you don’t need to remove it.
