Hi Andy,

Been very quite indeed to my regrets...
Wanted to come but didn't get permissions from my parents as I just have my drivers license for 2 months now and they said I could drive on the left side of the road yet, not alone at least...
+ the fact I've been working all august..
BUT if You'd be organizing something next year I'd be there now matter what!!!
Hopefully in my own car but progress is too slow for my wanting... But we'll see how far we get by next year and otherwise I'll take my grand dad's white fastback!

I WILL BE THERE NEXT YEAR!!!!

No further damage - not even to my wallet. It only cost 20 for a new tensioner and 20 for a new belt.

Did the last 50 miles of my journey home on the back of an RAC truck:



Thanks to this bearing (what's left of it):



That comes from here - the belt tensioner:



It ran dry, got hot and melted the pully - leaving this:



This left me with no alternator, no water pump and no power steering.
Fortunately there was a pub nearby

Looked out for you on Sun, but didn't hear you had probs: sorry to hear that, it was`a good event - will try to post a few pics later. About 35 Rapier's on Sunday. Mine not amongst them . Charging problems that I did not have parts to fix in the time available. Hope to during this week. It is on the road now, so will get it to some event at some point before next year's national . Cheers. G.
