A few cars that caught my eye....

Dan,

 

Had a good look round your motor, really nice! I spent most of the morning convincing James to go turbo ;)

My first MITP and enjoyed it very much.

 

Such a variety of cars and friendly crowd...

 

I was  miffed (putting it mildly)  to be unable to keep up with a couple of classic mini's on the track time session - even on the straight and at full chat  they left me standing , I daren't rev it any harder -  as i always reconed  my mini (FMG 1J - 9th photo down) to be pretty fast,  even if I am not half as quick a tasty driver that  I kid myself I am.... so pretty fed up and how slow compared to them even on the straight 

 

But phew ! - imagine my relief when I later saw under their bonnets  a lotus twin cam (12th photo down)  and vauxhall engine in them  -  so I didn't feel too put out. 

 

Had a great day - amazing cars and people

 

what surprised me was a really strong attendance bynew  MINI owners trade stands  and  clubs -

 

Lke or hate em (I am firmly in the like em  camp) - you can't deny that the new MINI's have a strong, dedicated  and enthusiastic following.

 

My next outing will be the Brighton Speed Trials - Saturday 7th September , why not pop down - its cars and motorbikes of every description doing a timed sprint along the seafront

 

- Hoping to have my refurbished  Avonbar Cyl head on the engine  and improve on last years 17sec time - we'll see...
