BX In the limelight

Post by Toddman »

This months PGTi magazine is now out and will be hitting the shelves this week :D
Inside is a 4 page article on the racer of Gary Cole titled "Unusual Suspect" 8)
The new season will soon be underway and the campaign for victory starts again with a lot of new regs and classes this year.

More details of the racer can be found at the link in my sig.
Would be nice to have the site on the BXS Club's links page to aid support for the team 8)

Cheers

Hi Luke,

I met Gary and his racecar at Witmun recently - I bought some headlamps/indicators/rear clusters off him. Sounds like quite a gruelling season up ahead! I agree, the link should be put up on the BX website.

Just to add that this is the first part of a series.

Part two is centred around the engine build. Not sure how many parts this will run to at the moment, possibly 4 or 5.

The main reason for the articles is to attract marketing partners (sponsors), as several of the previous supporting companies have moved from the area, or are now involved in other forms of advertising.

Witmun Engineering are once again supporting my efforts along with R&V Coachworks. Talks are still ongoing with a couple of other companies.

Too many valves/wrong fuel type?

Post by Toddman »

Has anybody read the article :?:
I genuinely thought there would be some interest on here with regard to Garys efforts and our attempts to get the BX some publicity.

Are people not able to find the mag or is it just not of interest?
This is a genuine question as I do kmow some areas struggle to find the mag

I'd like to read the article but can't find the mag. I need to go to a big WH Smith, I guess!

Unfortunately I haven't even heard of the magazine, never mind being able to get hold of a copy down here.

If it isn't either "tractor monthly", "what cow" or "The boy racer's guide on how to put your nova through a hedge" then it's not on the shelf.

mag availability

Post by Toddman »

Thanks guys
Can't stop laughing at your reply David :P Are you in Norfolk by any chance? I thought we were bad here in Lincs!

PGTi is a Unity Media magazine and started off as a Performance French Car Magazine but sadly drifted into a Max Power type mag but they are heading back to their roots with more track and race articles and are concentrating on performance again rather than styling.

I know most people have to resort to WH Smiths to find it which i think is bad so I will pass on what feedbaxk I get to the editor.
They are part of the team behind FCS again this year I beleive and will be there in force and the mag will publish a full write up of the event like last year.

Nope... Dorset/Somerset area, and right out in the middle of nowhere.

My nearest WHSmiths is about 30 miles away!

And this is the Locals' level of understanding of computers.

image linky (350kb)

Not really relevant to the thread, I know. But still funny!

Part two of the rebuild article should be hitting the shelves any day now.

We are pleased to announce that Valvoline and Eagle One are to support us this season.

Still can't find a source for the mag. When you say PGTI is that the title or is it Performance GTI or what? I'm going to hunt it down! The name of the publishers might help.
