    Le Mans Book

    Its a fair cop yes it is me in the picture with the old XXI 1265 , the chap said it was for the magazine for audi , they were winning all the races , and they were ammused to find some fans in kit cars. I forgot all about it , I think it was 2002 irishbob

    Series 1

    i have a serries 1 the only problem is the width of seats available , its 3 inches less than the 3 or 3a One good point is they used the lower front box section of the sierra so they are more robust for fitting larger engines. i fit in mine but it can be a squeeze

    Bleve Warning

  7. irishbob


    i had taken my car of the road for the first time in eight years ,they sent me the refund and said it was sorn for a year. that was from oct 2000 i just ignored it and they sent me a fine for £40 . i wrote and told them i had declared sorn when i got refund but didnt mention the fact that they had put 2000 on form instead of 2004. havent had any reply ,hope they take me to court and then i can show the receipt. i dont think they would allow you to sorn something from 4 years ago.

    Rear Suspension Change

    I have a series 1 Robin Hood on which I have fitted new shockers ( not coilovers) although the shockers have the necessary parts to convert to coilovers ,if springs are purchased. I have not altered the springs supplied with the kit, but the change of shocks has given me a better ride. The shocks are those supplied to westfields, according to demon tweeks. They are Spacks which I have also fitted to the front since building the car.

    well I would like to thank all the people who once again gave of their time to make it a pleasant weekend. The club is run now as an inclusive gathering and during the weekend many people were praising the club officials, if you feel as I do that they do a great job, why not just tell them. I ran out of petrol before leaving the site and had difficulty starting it, but once I used the irish method of pouring some down the carb, it was soon up and going. Then on the M6 just before Colin left me, I heard a bit of a rattle, thinking "OH, it's not my bonnet again! its tied down!!" I slowly made it to the next service area, only to discover the bracket on my exhaust had snapped off, a quick Hoodie repair by tying it up with a toggy strap (the same ones I used to hold the tent up on the NE weekend) and I was on my way again.
