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

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

Not a bit of it, pic whoring is perfectly acceptable! How is the old girl holding up to the rigours of competition?

I bet you get plenty of compliments with it being something different from the mainstream classic rally vehicles.

Hats off to you

Its holding up very well as it gets used pretty hard, the engine is the only thing letting it down,I need to get the Holbay rebuilt but not sure who to entrust the rebuild to...

it does get plenty of attention I have taken it to a few local classic meets people love to tell about the fastback/H120/hunter/gls they had years ago :)

Yep.... I'm not sure I'd have the bottle to spend so much time restoring a car and then thrash the hell out of it in competition. Keep the pics coming.
