Perhaps next year you and blue thunder can go head to head at curborough, unless you will be too busy taking the …… out of everyboby in the commentary box!

Given the language found on some of Craig's incar videos I don't think that would be a wise idea :lol:

Does seem that some of the renewed motivation, like my language at times :mrgreen: is also blue.

Not sure Bevs up for a major campaign these days, just enjoying the car that gave him so much fun 20 years ago, but it'll nice to get 'My' Fastest Scim pot back, but he can look after it for this year though :wink: :mrgreen:

Don't worry Geoff, I was only complimentary about you, your driving and your choice of alcoholic beverage... :lol:

Well after losing interest in the Sabre for a while, and hankering after a single seater or Clubmans car, my focus has come back to Scimitars again :) this is in part due to enjoying building a soapbox gravity racer, finding the fun in covering oneself in grinding debris and setting ones jumper on fire with welder or angry grinder, but also due to being inspired by Ben's circuit racer SS1 project and by having Crusty Crouch pop around and give me a motivational talking to the other evening :lol: thanks Chaps 8) much appreciated

Some more work on the fabricated front suspension is due, just waiting for some bits, would like it back on its wheels in a month
