So good to see what Rootes should have done when the model was out; (but Chrysler weren't interested) campaign it like they did the Series cars. Some great photos there Andy & well done for flying the Fastback flag so well. G.
We only had one problem (apart from a very tired smokey engine) which was a brake pipe coming out of the handbrake master cylinder on the finish line of the first test,so we flattened the end over & carried on with front brakes only & using the cable handbrake on the loose surface tests
we finished 6th overall and 2nd in class
This time we got some in car footage which I will upload during the week until then here are some more photos lol
Missed a cone on one of the later tests which denied us a class win but still managed to finish 10th o/a I bent the alloy handbrake lever and the engine used 2 litres of oil and was smoking quite badly
The next and last event for this year is this weekends Solway classic just hoping the engine holds out as its starting to misfire on idle due in part to total lack of compression on number 3 cylinder !
Then did the devils tour '85 last sunday, the 165 mile non competitive route followed the 1985 motoring news btrda road rally round (night rally) which started and finished near Kendal and looped the dales past tan hill and barnard castle before returning via Kirkby Stephen and leases ford to the finish at the heaves hotel near Levens
