Le Jog 2019

Yep, that would have been a shorter way of putting it:

"Navigator wanted for Le Jog. Must do everything"

Le Jog 2019

Many a true word... :D Anyway, here are a few thoughts on the Navigator role. Form an orderly queue chaps: Le Jog is not suitable for a complete novice navigator. You need some experience in the basics of driving regularities in their various guises – navigation, time keeping etc. Using a tripmeter ...

Le Jog 2019

I’m thinking of entering Le Jog in December 2019 in my Sabre Six – not this year as that’s too soon and anyway it’s pretty much full up. But I’m currently one navigator short of a picnic. I’ve done four Le Jog Touring Trials in my Coupe and the Sabre so I sort of know it a bit, but I’ve never done t...

Grabbing a list together of "watch out areas" please gents

Anything that’s been off the road for that long will be a nightmare and very expensive to recommission. Everything, yes everything will need some attention either major or minor. I speak from experience :wink: Walk away. Wait until you can afford a runner with an MOT. It’ll be cheaper in the long r...

Sabres at Bledlow

Many thanks to John Leslie and helpers for a great afternoon yesterday at his pad in west Bucks for the Bledlow Classic Car Display, alongside the Church Fete. Around half the roadworthy Sabres in the UK attended, all lined up here: IMGP4268.JPG John Valler's ex-works 42 ENX, Philip Needham's works-...

brakes getting stucked

Maybe you have one too Jacques, but like in the pics above it's not located at the brake switch union where mine was. Looks like it was original fitment though. I'm pretty sure removing mine cured the problem I had, not just coincidence. Edit: having said that, if it's inline with the front brakes o...

brakes getting stucked

I can’t imagine how something inline could be an anti-knock back device, without continually keeping pressure in the system? Yep, I've been musing over exactly that point Jim. It was many years ago! This is the thing, dug out from my man-cupboard: IMGP4267.JPG TBH I can't recall if it was inline wi...
