Been a bit busy of late but here's a few pictures from the last two events

The Berwick classic rally in may and the Lake district classic at the end of June
the car is getting some upgrades at the moment with the rear springs stiffened and decambered and a new thicker front anti roll bar being bespoke made







pleased to win this trophy as a mis plot on the map cost us a solid 5th place we also won the team prize

Great stuff Andy, but those rear tyres appear to be smoking before the marshall has dropped his arm.....

Finished 2nd overall 1st in class on the weekends saltire classic rally near Pitlochry
Some great test venues including down the banks of the river Tay and at
Sponsors site the Edradour whisky distillery plus regularity sections through the Errochty forests complex

A well organised event with some outstanding views, my navigator flew up from
Jersey to compete on his first classic event although he is an accomplished
Stage and road rally navigator
was very pleased with the cars performance Even though we bent a wheel
against a huge rock

Next event is the North Yorkshire classic on the 23rd march

Yes, great to see another Fastback being campaigned. I'm digging out a head for Tony, but I've heard that if you're starting with a clean sheet then it is OK to start working a standard head as with the Holbay you are limited by what has already been done with porting. But I'm not that technical so could be wrong.
Keep up the good work. Would come along to see you, but you're the other end of the country . Cheers. G.

It's not too bad a lot of people hit cones and accrued penalties
You could drop your worst scores (each test ran twice) we where up to second after the first few tests but lost out by one second to an rs2000

Have got entries in for four more rallies
Saltire classic march
North Yorkshire classic march
Ilkley jubilee classic april
Berwick classic may

Need to find a good condition holbay head for my short motor
Need a bit more power :)

Good work. Sounds like the car is pretty competitive then?
