Bastard!
I'm not sure that we will actually be allowed, no one realised the race was on when we booked hotels etc Might have to stay in Granada or Seville for an extra week. Hardship :lol:

I'm kind of surprised there having one, especially when its only two weeks after the ICCCCCCR

We had intended to take a box or 2 of excess BX bits to the Midlands rally, but if no BX's are going...
Meant to get rid of it at the ICCCR, but ended up being busy doing other stuff.

previously wrote:If any one is interested and wants to collect at Stratford, let me know (and I'll put it back on the packing list)
We've sorted through a couple of boxes containing a mixture of mostly NOS Mk1 and Mk2 stuff. £25 for the lot.
for example:
-various cables (accelerator, clutch etc)
-CV joints/boot kits
-window winders
-Mk1 gearlever gaiter
-various other bits, that could be put to better use on a car rather than sitting in a box.
Don't worry - it's now sold =D>

I'd love to do either, or both. Sadly, I'm working, and am unlikely to be able to get out of it...

We're not going this year. Mostly because none of our usual rabble are :(
I have zero patience for your tedium.

Quiet day at Stratford today - only 2 BX's (16v & TZD Estate), and not much on sale, although I bought a track rod, a steering coupling and some LHM from Malcolm Lockwood, plus got a couple of tips on things to check with Timex's hydraulic pressure issues. Hope it's busier for those of you going tomorrow!

Well - didn't make it this year :(

Spa's not going well for Lewis or Alonso either - bit of a mess but at least no-one hurt. My Sunday 'pottering' job (trying to get some HDDs fixed) not going well either at the moment.

At least Jensen is doing very well =D>

An enjoyable day even though the turnout was smaller than previous years. Sold a few bits & bobs & then bought some more bits & bobs, haha & only a few mins of very light spitting, otherwise it stayed nice & dry :)
