  1. Hey everyone! Just a heads up, show is still going ahead and looking to be a great turnout! If you are hoping to show with us, let me know here or by email Events@owstonhall.com Exhibitors get a free lunch and drink to say thanks for coming along. Exhibitors to arrive between 08:00 - 09:30. Gates to public open at 10:00, show to run down by 16:00. Hope to see a few of you guys there!
  2. Thanks for that info, I will contact them. Not going to do a sprint section for 2021, keeping it small and simple. But for 2022 when we plan to make is a 2 / 3 day event we will definitely be taking a much better look at getting that sorted!
  3. Brett gets my vote. I know him personally and he has worked on a friend of mines pinto in the past, work was good and he's a nice chap.
  4. Ok so.... Event confirmed as 8th August, starting 10am. Exhibitors will be offered a free drink on arrival and lunch will also be provided by the hotel. If you would like to show your car then drop me a PM and I will get you allocated. Hope to see a few of you there!
  5. I will certainly keep everyone posted as the details become clearer. Date is set for 8th August!
  6. Hey guys, One little thing I want to iron out with my car, everything else seems good. When driving along, if I am cruising with my foot barely on the throttle she coughs through the carbs, I assume this is something to do with the switch from idle to main jets? Difference to big or something like this? Runs well at idle and runs well when accelerating/ keeping some power on for hills, just happens when floating on the peddle, say cruising through town at 30mph or similar.... Any advice is much appreciated.
  7. UPDATE - Event date looks like it will be Sunday 8th August. Those of you that are interested in showing off your cars, drop me a message and I can get more details over to you as they come in! Everyone welcome!
  8. I semi agree. I do think that one offs and more unique vehicles do grab more attention but kids do love to come and see that car from the tv they hear so much about or have on their wall. This is why as much as we have super cars available from our members I also want kits and hot rods there too as I feel this will broaden the appeal. I have spoken to a few people and it looks like we will be going ahead in August some time. Likely a Sunday. Just one day this year with the plan to make it a 3 day event in 2022 once things settle down and we have time to build an official brand, webpage and sop forth for the event. Watch this space for the date in the coming days.
  9. Yes we are looking into all of that side of things at current. It would really finish the event off if we could do it but as its only a 1/4 mile section we have to weigh up the input to output. Just by floating the idea by some of the golf club members here we have a potential lineup of 10 supercars inc Several Ferarri, Porsche, Lamborghini, Rolls Royce and more. One of the members 'MAY' be interested in bringing his F40 down for show but is less inclined to bring his La Ferarri and who can blame him, its worth well into 6 figures!
  10. I am sure we can do something on room rates for people showing cars. I want to make this happen in 2021 but may be sensible to do it in 2022. Its just a floating idea at the moment but I think it has scope to become quite a good event. Like you say, a mini Goodwood.
  11. Hello Guys and Gals, I have this vision of doing a kit car weekend here at the hotel and golf club I work at. The idea would be for people bring their cars, show them and generally have a good time. We have loads of space for showing and I have an idea in my mind of using one of our entrance roads for potential timed ‘high speed’ runs, the road isn’t overly long but enough to have some fun doing timed Point to Point. The idea would also be to advertise to the public and to get a turn out of a few hundred people over the weekend. Several of our Golf Club members have supercars and similar and are showing an interest in getting behind this idea. Do you think this may be something our local members may be interested in attending? We are based in Owston, Doncaster, DN5 0LP. It would be great to hear your thoughts and if you think members might be interested.
  12. I that's what I have fitted and it's aboit 30mm bellow the gearbox bell housing. I have raised the engine up on the mounts but the rocker now knocks the peddle box so I'm looking back down the shorter sump route. It work as it is but it's not ideal so tempted to swap my alloy one out. Not sure yet.
  13. Looking for a pinto 2.0 sump. Shortened. With or without big wing. Side drain bung. This is to fit my Robin Hood S7. I have found a company that sells them with no exchange unit (premier motorsport developments) but having heard pretry horrific reviews about their service and items never showing up I don't fancy sending them £170 for potentially nothing.... Open to a new or used unit.
  14. Hey guys and gals, Now that the sun is poking its head out from behind the wintery clouds and the car is ready for action once again its time to head out on the open road. I am based in Doncaster and was wondering if anyone can offer any decent routes or roads for a local blast around? I often head out to the peaks climbing so am familiar with the roads around the peaks beyond Sheffield / Eccy road. I am looking for some more local stuff that if I just fancy a 1hr blat after work or whatever, I can. All advice much appreciated!
