Hi Craig,

I believe we may well have done, and like yourself with your easily recognised username I use the same Darkspeed username on all the "usual" forums related to the hobby except Locostbuilders as that goes back a ways and I use an Andy S sign in. With the GOC we get an invite to compete at your Curborough day from Eric and was hoping to make it over to spectate and have a look this year but it clashes with an event I am involved with at Tatton Park.

Dont know about you guys but a fews of us midland based GOC members hire the Curby venue twice a year on a Thursday to have a hoon about on :D One of these days I will actually finish a car to compete in....

I will drop over my contact numbers - you will be more than welcome. Stafford, Wem or Loton in a couple of weeks.

Hi Viv,

Thanks for the welcome - Certainly sounds a night not to be forgotten :shock:

Guilia Berlina /Giulia Coupe / Alfa Sud's and 75's were my poison and still having difficulty divorcing myself from the addiction. I keep hatching plans about dropping an Alfa engine in one project or another - and then remind myself I should be concentrating on getting just one finished.

I am not sure if it could be described as business - It has more in common with a charity :lol:

Welcome to the madhouse. Loved my 2L Alfetta in the late 70s/early 80s (ie. even the night I camped on top of a rescue low loader in a small village in France during their worst electical storm this century cause Collinson's garage had not completely done up the securing nuts on the two piece Prop and it came apart at 80+MPH on the motorway going down to Paris !!!). Best of luck with the part-time Business.
Regards,
Viv

I use the same username or id forget who I was :oops:

if you can make Curbs on the Saturday morning they'll be some track testing, prior to the sunday sprint.

I will be competing at Loton (along with a few of the other Scimitar compies) august 30th and probably pop up on the sunday to spectate as well.

the SSSC hire Curborough for 5 days in august culminating in our sprint, and also a pre season shake down usually end march/early april too.

catch up soon cheers Craig

Hi Craig,

May well see if I can make it over to Curby - Be nice to show you guys the right location to mount a CVH in a plastic sports car with a galv chassis :lol:

I wouldnt be so sure about the midships positioning of a CVH being better Andy, Nick Keysers "X Wing Fighter" SS1 CVH may surprise you.
