Re: Silverstone Classic 25/26 July 2015

thanks. In truth Alex, my son, is quicker than me but he is 30 years younger and almost 20kg lighter! The Pre 63GT grid suits the car well so I am a little perturbed to see it with 35 car grid rather than capacity 55. I hope they continue with the series. The Battle of Britain race is a bit formula ...

Hi - just to say we are racing the Sabre Six in the Pre63GT race on Sunday (11am) and the Battle of Britain race Saturday afternoon and Sunday last race. We have (fingers crossed) solved the condenser issues we had at Donington and Silverstone back in May so are hopeful for a good showing! We will b...

Donington this weekend

Following the problems at Thruxton - the bracket attached to the chassis which bolts on the front upright came off dropping the front wheel - we are running the Sabre Six in a 90 minute race at the Donington Festival. The race is on Sunday and is run by Flavian Marcais under his GTSCC banner. Cars i...

Re: Goodwood 73MM

thanks - do you know where we can get replacement ones? We would like to replace on a "lifed" basis the ones in there. Are they Triumph ones?

Re: Goodwood 73MM

thanks and good meeting some new faces! Practice was very cold and as a result getting any heat into 2 year old tyres nigh on impossible - maybe time to put my hand into my pocket and buy some new tyres... As others started to get some heat in their tyres and improve their times I had the shower of ...

for those who are interested the Les Leston race at the 73rd Members Meeting is at 10.00am on Sunday with qualifying at 10.45 on Saturday. Assuming all goes according to plan (and after last season I think I am owed that!) thereafter I will be racing it in HSCC Guards Trophy, GTSCC and Pre 63 GT at ...

Re: Classics Monthly

thanks for the heads up, spent most of this week on a plane so I had plenty of reading time! Good article. Out of interest do we know what has happened to the project car that was auctioned earlier in the year?

I am delighted to say that my luck continues and my Sabre Six has the nod for the Les Leston race at next March' Members Meeting. The Revival last year was my first race completed since buying the car last year such has been the number of issues I have suffered but having changed or rebuilt everythi...
