Jim,
Yes (ex RN Captain) you probably did since he had it from 1986->2013 as the 2nd Owner. A very well looked after original example with MOT/Tax and no known faults, very driveable BUT an Auto.
Regards,
Viv

There were actually some other cars taking part in the sprint, as well as Scimitars. As the my bulk uploading seems to be working, you can see a selection on Flikr - here
To whet your appetite, here's a couple that caught my eye - this Anglia which was trying hard,

some great shots of James K and Team Carter, bith of whom seem to be taking the chicane better than many others, both cars seem nicely composed

Yes, James K on his fastest run looked really good through there :D With the better, more powerful engine, as well, then there should be some real potential for quick times.

Shame about James C's spin on his last run - a 109 still wasn't a disaster (including the spin) - wonder if he might have been quicker than his first run without that?
