I can go with a car full of spares:
lights, pipes, bits of trim, spheres, a boxful of oil filters, other odds and ends, a full set of seats and trims, even a rear hatch from a 1.9 TXD white estate if anyone wants one.
I have a new-ish tow bar that looks like it comes off a ZX, but not sure.
A timing belt set, new, for a ZX 1.9 Diesel.
Some stuff can be given away, some I would want a donation for .

I can't give a full inventory at the moment, since I haven't had time to look through it all.
The easiest way is to chuck it all in the back of the car and bring it all along !!

If anyone wants anything particular, let me know, and I will look to see if I have it/them.

The Citroen X-rally is not listed on the Burghley House Website,
however, the Rolls Royce event in June is advertised.... Hummph !

As it's rather closer to us we are going to the South East Section event at Knole House this year instead so sorry to miss the X-Rally, but hope you all enjoy it. Anyone else going to Knole?

Not going to make it after all, GT work still in progress - but nearly there. Car keeps throwing up stuff that ought to be done!

Yes, hope to have it back next weekend - all things good. Would like to get some miles done in it before the challenge, just incase any wobblies are thrown I can get them sorted before the challenge!
