Lands End 18/19 April 2014

Post by alan.wells » Tue Apr 15, 2014 9:44 pm

Hi Folks,
The trial starts this Friday evening, our start is at Michael Wood services M5, no 243, we are late runners, I know Steve Simms start is at Plusha no 138, early runner, places to spectate are on the MCC web site, I think the weather may be kind to us the week-end , not like the wet Exeter.
Regards
Alan

Hi All,
We had a fantastic weekend trialling, weather and hills were very dry, plenty of boulders and holes, Warleggan one of the hills was the worst and roughest hill we have ever climbed. I haven't heard how Steve went on, but,we have applied for a gold award, but this is only provisional, we will know when all the results are in, in a couple of weeks. From our start 21.03 Friday at Michael Wood services M5, road section to Bridgwater control 100 miles and from there to the finish following the route a further 250 miles, and completed at Fraddon Cornwall, 17.30 Saturday evening, knackered truly.
Regards
Alan

Well done, Alan!

I think Steve had a couple of little mistakes costing him a Gold? Think I read it on FaceAche..

Well I've just calculated our total mileage from home to home for the trial being just short of 900 miles, the picture below was taken a few years ago by professional. The car has since had its engine totally rebuilt by our John, the car is 850 cc but with a Marshals supercharges, boosting performance to about 1500 cc.
Regards
Alan

we had a reasonably good trial, a couple of silly mistakes from me left us outside the medals. The car picked up three faults.Mis-fire due to a chaffed HT lead( fix on roadside) starter motor cooked it self ,I think with the under body protection it just got to hot. And my seat belt buckle failed to lock ,which was bloody annoying! as the only thing holding me in the car was my grip on the steering wheel.
