    Failed At Manchester

    Dave Looks like a good test you should pass next time with no problems. The engine number is on the front of the block usually visible from the offside of the car. I coloured mine with paint to make it easier to read but its still difficult. Good luck with the next test Trev.
  2. For all those who love the cars that raced at Lemans between 1923 and 1979. This time on the Full not the Indy. circuit the Classic Lemans. The dates are 11th, 12th and 13th July 2008. This is just an initial note to see how many would be interested. The plan is to run it through the club in much the same way as the present Lemans trip. The exception being that there would be a general itinerary that can be followed or not depending on you choice. It will not be purely kit cars as quite a few of the club members do not currently have kits or are still building. The plan is roughly ferry Wednesday and overnight stop. On site Thursday. I hope to organize a meal during our stay either Thursday or Friday evening. Return via Paris with two nights, Monday and Tuesday, at the Bois de Boulogne camp site in the centre of Paris. Return ferry Wednesday Camping at Classic Lemans has in past years been at Maison Blanche. If you are interested please PM me so I can get a feel for numbers.

  12. I know just how you feel. I eventually had to send my form in because of an approaching deadline, I was hoping to go to Le Mans last year. In the end I had to postpone the test twice before eventually getting there in Sept, only 4months late, and passing at the second attempt. The SVA stations, at Derby, were very good and didn’t charge me for the missed tests. I did however let them know in good time when I cancelled. When you send in the form it certainly cranks up the pressure to finish but you’ve got to do it some time. Remember the sun will eventually come out again and you we will be ready to enjoy it with your car on the road. YOU KNOW IT MAKES SENSE !

    Chassis Number

    I also spoke to my local DVLA (Nottingham) who provided me with the chassis number. They are not keen on own grown numbers so discourage the practice. They also sent me the form to get the chassis number verified by an MOT/SVA tester which saved any problem at car registration. However as ‘enforcer’ says check with your local DVLA and SVA test centre as rules and verification seem to very depending on local flavour.

    Side Repeaters

    SVA requirement is 350mm min to the lowest point on the lens from ground level. I mounted my side repeaters in the triangle of the windscreen support and passed SVA without comment Trevor

    Well done. Pleased to see you found an alternative to the bias valve that works and is at the right price!
